Excerpt: The juniper pine notes provide the backnote, but Nolet's Silver Gin is full of freshly sliced peach, ripe raspberry, and roses. Those notes are each found individually but the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Perhaps not everyone's cup of tea, but definitely worth a try at least.
Excerpt: Look for a pale straw hue and floral aromas intertwined with a hint of fruity sweetness. The palate opens with bold violet and rose petal interlaced with anise and juicy berry, finishing with black pepper punch.
Excerpt: All told this remains a somewhat strange style of gin that tells a rather different story than your traditional London dry, its florals dominating the palate considerably. It’s best used in more exotic cocktails rather than in traditional martini or tonic applications.

Ginvitational Day 34! Todays gin review features a gin that has been long requested by readers - Nolet's Dry Silver Gin. Produced at Nolet, where distillation has been underway since 1691, this gin is quite popular. A fun fact about Nolets: in 1983, they also started producing Ketel One vodka. But, we're here to drink gin, so let's get back on track. Let's dive in.
Sweet, lots of juniper character, along with cream and sugar, hint of pepper, some melon and a really nice cardamon and floral note.
Sweet on the palate initially. Oooh it is fruity and interesting. Juniper hits first, along with apple, pear, carious stone fruit, a tiny bit of peach and honey dew. Cardamon on the back palate with some lovely cracked pepper.
Long finish. Roasty and botanical forward. Loads of pepper, lavender, coriander and orange peel here.
Diverse, complex, really quite enjoyable. Big fan of this one, and it makes one heck of a Gin & Tonic.
