So we've got a whiskey thread, a rum thread and a vodka thread. Surely there must be some gin lovers here? Up till now, I've only tried 3 kinds of gin so far, namely Seagram's, Gordon's and Tanqueray original (possessing the latter 2 varieties). Seagram's wasn't particularly memorable so I can't really comment. Personally, I'm a big fan of the juniper taste and aroma, so Gordon's is currently my pick since it packs it by the bucketload. It's strong enough to cut through the tonic in a G&T which one of my fave drinks Unfortunately, Gordon's is a little harsh on the finish, but can't complain since it's available so widely and cheaply. Unlike many people, I'm not a big fan of Tanqueray at all, mainly because I find the nose on it to be absolutely awful - an unpleasant rubbing alcohol smell that seems to overwhelm everything else. Tastewise it's seems a bit more prominent on the citrusey botanicals with a fairly strong juniper taste, and fairly smooth despite the higher proof, but I certainly can't justify the extra cost with the awful aroma. Looking forward to trying out some Beefeater's and Hendrick's sometime soon. Had considered Sapphire in days past, but probably a wise choice not to get it since I like me juniper. Let discussion begin, gentlemen. And gentlewomen, if present.
