bourbon barreled Big gin
“A shining example of an aged gin. There is a harmony in the botanicals and the wood notes, which come through at the start. Then there are rich botanical notes, including spice and citrus, before the mellow notes of the barrel return for the finish.”
-International Wines & Spirits Competition 2014
TASTING NOTES: Nose: Sappy pine, beeswax with a hint of marmalade, then a swirl of spice. Taste:A lovely interplay between the gin and the wood. There are elements of wood sap, beeswax and resinous juniper. This is followed by some more intense spiciness such as a complex green cardamom, which moves on to a more mellow spice with vanilla and a light cinnamon, as well as some hints of wood. This is a sterling example of good balance in the interaction of spirit and barrel.
