Blackwoods Vintage Dry Gin 2012
- Alc Vol: 40%
- Size: 70cl
- Made with hand-harvested Shetland botanicals picked fresh each summer by local crofters, this gin is always fresh and lively but uniquely reflects each vinatge.
- Bright citrus on the nose at first, lemon and sweet orange notes at first, with hints of juniper, and green leaves highlighted with meadowsweet underneath it. Somewhat summery, suggesting trimming flowers in the garden, though alcohol and ethanol notes lie a bit more prominently beneath than might be expected at 40 proof.
- The palate of Blackwood’s Vintage Dry Gin 2012 is smooth and the entry quite accessible. Sweet orange, meadowsweet, with notes of violet and iris, early, the spirit warms (literally), where the juniper blossoms out of a vanilla/violet custard notes, briefly with some hints of pine, before clean spice blossoms on the finish, with a melange of white pepper and nutmeg notes.
- The finish is somewhat abbreviated, medium-short in length, ending dry with a pleasant tinge or warmth but nary a flash of heat. Very accessible, and very sippable.
