I’ve had this sample floating around my kitchen for awhile now. Reviewing a mini is a challenge for me, but I try to do it as best as I can, especially when David hooks me up with some samples from the UK. I prefer to mix a couple of full cocktails, try it in a few smaller drinks and really kind of get a sense of what the gin is trying to do. Well in this case I have about 50mL of a spirit. It’s hard to do as a complete a review as I’d like, but I’m going to take a shot at telling you what it tastes like and how it works w/ Tonic. But that’s about all I can do. If I ever am able to get a full bottle, I reserve the right to update this review with a more complete list of cocktails and tasting notes.
Okay, phew. Now that I’ve got that out of the way, let’s get down to the first ‘micro-tasting.’
Blade: introductory notes. Very intrigued by the fact that the base mixed a standard neutral grain base with grape spirits as well.
