Beefeater Burrough’s Reserve Gin-
“The Gin is a light amber color, with a slight shimmer of golden hues in it: it is neither subtle, nor dark.
Warm, with floral notes, lemon, orange peel, camphorous herbal mid-notes hinting at pine and rosemary at the same time, but never directly. A kind of amorphous multi-faceted nose that is inviting, but complex.
The palate begins up front with some citrus. Lemon peel in particular, then some mid-notes that bring comparisons to a more traditional gin, with some earthy angelica complimented with a touch of cassia and nutmeg. The finish is where there’s a touch of piney juniper, but the highlight is the creamy rich finish with vanilla, citrus, and a hint of warm, sweet, oak. Again, like the nose, complex and interesting, with many different flavors catching one another. One thing that did catch me off guard is that the base spirit does not immediately remind me of Beefeater. Though there’s some traditional notes, the profile leans slightly more contemporary.” For the full review check out theginisin.com.
