Review #1659 | Gin Review #53

Distiller: Dry Fly

Bottler: Dry Fly

Brand: Dry Fly


ABV: 40% ABV

Age: NA

Nose: Sweet, malty, a bit of vanilla. Lemon curd, faint pepper, bread-y.

Taste: Sweet and creamy, lots of vanilla, some maltiness, honey and butter. Faint juniper, a hint of pepper.

Finish: Long finish, rich and loaded with pepper, honey, melon, pepper and a hint of cardamom. Carries nicely, and the malty note plays well with citrus.

Overall: This is pretty nice, though it’s very unique. This is nowhere near a London dry expression, and if you expect that, you’ll be disappointed. If you expect, instead, a gin that’s sweet, floral and malt forward, the door is open. This worked very well in a Negroni, as well as a fizz. Big fan.

Thanks for reading!
