Bardenay Gin (Local)
The nose is strongly juniper. A little bit of alcohol vapour smell, but pleasant, inviting, and quite gin like. As its intended to be a classic-styled gin, this is quite what the name implies. Its a bit creamy tasting. citrus and vanilla come to mind. Still a crisp juniper sensation, but it fades towards the backseat at the tail end of the taste. Warm spiced lemon fades gently, punctuated by a momentary rush of heat, which fades almost as suddenly as it came on. The taste profile isn't quite classic, but it is quite drinkable. Smooth and flavorful, with a depth and quality which warrants a second look.
