Yukon Shine Distillery Tasting Notes

Posted: April 29, 2014 in American Gin, Gin

Yukon Shine Aura Gin 40%

Vapour infused with 12 botanicals including fresh grapefruit, lemon and lime.

Tasted: Nov/ Dec 2013

Pungent and oily aromas with hints juniper, earth, vanilla and citrus. The emphasis is however firmly on the sweet cereally spirit character.  

The palate is soft and a little watery with sugar coated citrus, lightly creamy vanilla and juniper. Like the nose the palate displays plenty of oily spirit character. Good creamy finish with a serious peppery spiciness. Conclusion: Probably not for the purists as it is more spirit and less gin!
