Hurry, hurry, hurry! Step right up and test your taste! Ladies and Gentlemen, boys and girls, dogs and cats of all ages, sizes, and creeds have I got a deal for you! This is hot off the presses and is something that can relieve all of your ailments and woes and if you don’t believe me then I am sorry but you can just go kick dirt for all I care!

Hello there! My name is William Power McGillicutty and I am here to offer you something that shares something with me and it is the name of Power! This here is the most miraculous, fantastic, wonderful, amazing, stupendous, and delicious elixir that you will ever try! This ladies in gentlemen, is Hendricks gin!

This fantastic concoction was created by the Scots and we all know how much they like booze, folks. Not only does this taste like the air on a beautiful spring day when the flowers are blooming (perfect for you dames out there) but it has the gusto and look that a real man can appreciate and display beautifully in a cabinet to share with his chums! This is also something the kids will enjoy to get rid of aches, pains, and colds rather than that dreadful cough syrup that they cannot even stomach. This will have them quiet, happy, and pain free…the perfect use for the perfect elixir in the perfect home. What could be better?

Editor’s Note: We’ve had a lot of laughs the past few weeks about spousal abuse, and underage drinking. Here at Booze Reviews while we’re free to comment on said facts with laughter and gusto at the end of the day it’s a sad fact that such behavior is not acceptable. Beating your wife leads to bruises, better to use mind-games and sly tactics to control your women, and giving your kid liquor to calm them? Bah the booze is for you and Ritalin and Tylenol already do this. Thank you for your time.

People, this is the bees knees! Have aches and pains? Hendricks! Cold or cough? Hendricks! Sore throat? Hendricks! Hair looking a little thin? Hendricks! Need to stay awake on a late night drive? Hendricks! Need your wife to be quiet? Hendricks! Even if you just need a nice drink late at night with your pals…it is good for every occasion! Hendricks! This will put hair or your chest if you are a man and tickle your lady’s taste buds as well! I am not just preaching, people. The creators tell you like it is right on the bottle!

What they say: “This *handcrafted *gin is distilled from a proprietary recipe which included traditional botanicals such as Juniper, Coriander, and Citrus Peel, The “Unexpected” infusion of Cucumber and Rose Petals result in a *Most Iconoclastic Gin*

IT IS NOT FOR EVERYONE.

Please enjoy the unusual responsibly.”

When they say it is not for everyone they mean it is for those that are weak and have no taste! This is indeed an iconoclastic masterpiece! But don’t take my word for it…listen to the reviews! Take it away, boys!

 

Taste: 7.7 – We like that taste, this isn’t like a very standard gin, it’s very floral, and the juniper is very lite. Despite the smell though the taste is very powerful.

Aftertaste: 7.4 – Very pleasant, ends nice clean.

Burn/Smooth: 6.4 – It is pretty sharp, but it reminds you that this is gin like your grandfather would, not like a punch to the face.

Aroma: 6.88 – It’s pretty floral for a gin smell. It’s a weak smell, but it’s nice.

Manliness: 8.9 – We like the fact that the bottle is modeled after an old elixir bottle, and while it’s is glass instead of tin it does have a cork. It looks really nice, and the text just goes off the ingredients and it outright says “It’s not for everyone.” Which is just an ideal we can stand behind, it’s what we’d put on our labels.

Mixability: 6.25

G & T: 5.5 – It’s just really average, which is actually odd. It ends a bit watery – which isn’t desirable really.

Martini: 7 – Much like the gin it’s a different kind of taste, but it’s still delicious.

Value: 5.2 – It’s not great value, but we’d buy this again. It’s expensive but worth the price.

Google Shop Average: $33

Final Thoughts:

Justice likes this gin. The Buffalo does too. Is a very manly gin. Overall it’s a very good gin, but it’s only detractor is the price, and it’s lackluster Gin and Tonic. But again who needs gin and tonic when your gin is all the tonic you’d ever need! Other gins should worry we don’t have an ability to cure Aids and Cancer category because Henrick’s would score a perfect 10!

It has been written, so it must be. Science has proven it.
