Here at week 2 of gin reviews and we are know in a gin that comes to us from England, that was then shipped to Iceland, and has been described as being made similar to a Scottish single malt – because why not. However while last week we had a good martini gin, this is simply mediocre and overpriced to compensate.
Alright time for some gin since it’s been a while (and we’ve fallen into the trap of just getting New Amsterdam and Tanqueray 10 all over again.) For the first gin (yes there will be another next week) we went with an American gin which comes to us from Maine.
I have actually visited the Tower of London and seen the men wearing the outfit’s pictured on the bottle. I feel though that instead there should be a crow for how badly this tastes. Not to give it a bad rap, but this is normally what you serve in bars as the cheap gin for a good reason.
If you recall I mentioned a story in my Seagram’s review about my first real experience with gin, and that Seagrams, Black Watch, and Gilbey’s were really – terrible gins, but because I had so much of them, I eventually broke through my general dislike of gin, and now fully appreciate a good gin spirit.
It’s come to my attention that we really haven’t reviewed a gin for near 6 months now (I honestly keep buying New Amsterdam or get a special Tanqueray) So this whole thing aside from providing the internet with honest spirit information is to keep trying new things so let’s try an American gin.
Not since our cookout where we had the delicious Kraken, have I ever really had Bombay (which was sadly lost to us). As stated I’m more a Tanqueray kind of man, but then Justice would have some fighting words with me about that – mostly because we’d have drunk our respective gins. However not to show bias this week I shall partake of the original Bombay Sapphire for you all.
Good afternoon everyone, if you’re wondering why there’s another Buffalo review (and no Bison Grass Vodka), I’d like to say that what I’m reviewing is so special to my heart that my fellow reviewers shall not get a share. Sadly though you’ve already seen Seagram’s Gin in the title, so that’s basically ruined.
