Review #1663 | Gin Review #54

Distiller: Apothecary Beverage Company

Bottler: Apothecary Beverage Company

Brand: Chemist Spirits

Selection: N/A

ABV: 45% ABV

Age: NA


Nose: Sweet and floral with quite a bit of character. Honey, lavender, perfume, sweet juniper and a hint of pepper.

Taste: Rich on the palate, nice depth and body. Coats nicely, sweet cream and honey, faint berries, a bit of floral character. Lavender, juniper, coriander plan nicely. Rich mouth feel, proof carries nicely.

Finish: Short to medium finish, a faint touch of heat. More savory and floral here on the finish, compared to a bright and fruity nose. A hair bitter, but nothing distracting.

Overall: Overall, this is quite nice. I like the unique expression of the floral character on the nose, but found the finish a little one noted. This is the first of several Chemist expressions I have here to review, so Im looking forward to seeing how each of the rest goes.

Thanks for reading!
