New Amsterdam Spirits Tasting Notes

Posted: April 29, 2014 in American Gin, Gin

New Amsterdam Gin 40%

Tasted Nov/ Dec 2013

Distilled by the New Amsterdam Spirits Company in America. Ingredients used for this gin include citrus peel and juniper.

Wow, now that’s a citrusy nose! Sherbet lemons and sugar coated lemon rind! Lightly herbal with hints of dry spice and developing juniper.  

The palate opens crisp and clean but becomes very confected with sugar coated lemon. Maybe a little too sweet for me. Long and sweet with lingering lemon.

Conclusion: One for those with a sweet tooth.
