Distiller: Driftless Glen

Bottler: Driftless Glen

Brand: Driftless Glen

Selection: N/A

ABV: 46% ABV

Age: NA


Nose: Powerful caramel, pepper, toffee sweetness. Juniper, oak and cinnamon. Rich and decadent.

Taste: Sweet toffee, nice juniper component. Sweet cream, caramel and vanilla. Matched with pepper, some floral essence like lavender. Overall the mouthfeel is rich, and the proof is in a good place.

Finish: Long, sweet and rich. More wood influence here than anywhere else. Finishes more like a whiskey than a gin.

Overall: Really nice stuff. Really enjoyable, and a really unique look at a more exotic approach to gin production.
