Magellan Blue Gin (750ml)

From Cognac, France


Pale aquamarine tint comes from the infusion of Iris root and flower. Opening nosing passes feature clove with supporting traces of cassia bark, grains of paradise and nutmeg; after several more minutes a moderately sweet and fruity bouquet develops, one that highlights orange zest, coriander and juniper berries. Palate entry is bittersweet and acceptably prickly on the tongue; by midpalate, the cocoa and bean-like taste focuses on the earthy/root/bark botanicals, especially the cassia, juniper and licorice. Finishes cleanly, bittersweet and long. One of the more bitter and intensely bean-like gins I’ve sampled.

Pale electric silver blue color. Delicate aromas of banana salt water taffy and bread, floral bouquet, and faint coriander and herbal juniper follow through on a round, supple entry to a dry-yet-fruity medium body with good depth and smoothness. Finishes with a long, creamy, and peppery mineral and banana cream accented fade.
