Ginvitational Day 26! Distilled from grain and infused with botanicals from the Highlands of North Carolina, Chemist Spirits American Gin is a new world style gin and the topic of todays gin review. Notable botanicals include citrus and rose. Let's get to it.
Sweet and floral with quite a bit of character. Honey, lavender, perfume, sweet juniper and a hint of pepper.
Rich on the palate, nice depth and body. Coats nicely, sweet cream and honey, faint berries, a bit of floral character. Lavender, juniper, coriander plan nicely. Rich mouth feel, proof carries nicely.
Short to medium finish, a faint touch of heat. More savory and floral here on the finish, compared to a bright and fruity nose. A hair bitter, but nothing distracting.
Overall, this is quite nice. I like the unique expression of the floral character on the nose, but found the finish a little one noted. This is the first of several Chemist expressions I have here to review, so Im looking forward to seeing how each of the rest goes.
