This orange flavored gin comes to us from Tanqueray. It’s worth noting here that there’s some legitimate flavoring involved - some sugar as well, so gin purists may want to take note. Otherwise, I’m a fan of what Tanqueray generally releases, so I’m curious how this turned out. 2.5g carbs per 1.5oz for the carb minded folks like myself.
Clean orange essence, honey, light confectioners sugar, some juniper and coriander. Not too sweet.
Ok, there’s the sweetness. Definitely sweet, although not syrupy or cloying. Juniper kind of gets buried here, tons of orange essence, honey, some pepper and a light minerality.
Long finish - more orange, pepper, some zest and sugar.
This sort of tastes the sweeter it goes on. I like it - a natural sweetness - but it’s definitely sweet. Fans of traditional, dry gins will want to leave this on the bar cart for cocktail duty only.
