Review #1107 | Gin Review #15

Distiller: Mississippi River Distilling

Bottler: Mississippi River Distilling

Brand: Mississippi River Distilling


ABV: 40% ABV

Age: NAS

Nose: Huge cinnamon blast. Floral potpourri. Clove, pepper, pipe tobacco. Lots of meaty spice. Really interesting.

Taste: Thin mouth feel. Red hots, oak, woody tannins. Sweet caramel, bitter spices, some juniper. Tastes like I imagine some candles smell. Really heavy on the potpourri spice.

Finish: Short to medium in length. Massively cinnamon forward. It almost edges everything else out.

Overall: Overall, this was nice, but very focuses on the red hot note, which hasnt always been my favorite.

Thanks for reading!

Rank: 5
