Ginvitational Day 23! Todays gin review comes from Lee Spirits in Colorado in the form of their American Dry Gin. Let's get to it.
Sweet, rich, and effervescent on the nose. Fresh baked bread, some sourdough, juniper, pepper and honey. Faint creamy texture on the nose, really enticing.
Medium mouth feel, coats the tongue nicely, drips nicely along the jawline. Sweet cream, rich juniper, pepper and citrus accompany really nice carriage of the ethanol. Not too sweet, not too juniper forward, lovely character. Drinks far richer than 90% ABV.
Long finish. A bit more pepper here, taking the finish to a more savory, peppery ending, but I think that complements the sweetness of the nose nicely. Juniper, pepper and orange peel play this bottle out nicely.
Really big fan of this particular expression, and I think it’s a great gin. The complexity of the nose is impressive and the palate and finish can keep it going. It’s not hard to score this bottle.
