Ginvitational Day 2! This release from Driftless Glen in Baraboo, WI is a fun blend of gins aged in new and refill American oak. Using their standard Gin mashbill, this is bottled at 46% ABV. Let's dive in.
Powerful caramel, pepper, toffee sweetness. Juniper, oak and cinnamon. Rich and decadent.
Sweet toffee, nice juniper component. Sweet cream, caramel and vanilla. Matched with pepper, some floral essence like lavender. Overall the mouthfeel is rich, and the proof is in a good place.
Long, sweet and rich. More wood influence here than anywhere else. Finishes more like a whiskey than a gin.
Really nice stuff. Really enjoyable, and a really unique look at a more exotic approach to gin production.
