Distiller: Golden State Distillery
Bottler: Golden State Distillery
Brand: Gray Whale
ABV: 43% ABV
Nose: Whoah, incredibly unique and complex here. Seaweed, celery salt, savory juniper and tons of zesty fruits and citrus. Unexpected but enticing.
Taste: Bready, savory, really interesting. Initially it has strong notes of fresh baked bread, followed by the strange dichotomy of zesty citrus and nutty forest notes. Faint herbal note on the back palate.
Finish: Long finish, zesty and savory.
Overall: Far from your average gin, I can’t say this is my favorite. It’s unique, and it’s really interesting, but the profile doesn’t really captivate me and it’s sort of a bull in the china shop when it comes to cocktails.
