Review #1334 – Esme Gin

The Schtick: “France- Esme Gin is a modern spin on the traditional botanicals found in London Dry Gin; a botanical blend of juniper, spice and infusions of cucumber and rose petals, giving the classic martini and gin and tonic cocktail an unmistakably elegant French twist.”- Total Wine

Review #1334 | Gin Review #23

Distiller: Esme

Bottler: Esme

Selection: N/A

ABV: 40% ABV

Age: NA

Nose: Sweet, but artificial. Corn sweetness, artificial lime, lemon, potpourri.

Taste: Medium mouth feel. Juniper takes a back seat to white pepper, powerful lemon and lime, and orange peel. Reminds me a lot of Absolut Lime vodka, but with a creamy back sweetness.

Finish: Short, fruity, effervescent, then gone.

Overall: Not exceptional, not a lot of anything, actually. Well, except lime. There’s a lot of citrus.

Thanks for reading!
