Lucas Bols Tasting Notes

Posted: May 1, 2014 in Dutch Gin/ Genever, Gin

Damrak Amsterdam Original Gin 41.8%

Based on the recipe from one of the worlds oldest existing commercial distilleries in Amsterdam – Lucas Bols – A producer of Genever and Liqueurs’ since 1575. Five times distilled using 17 botanicals including juniper, citrus and honeysuckle

Tasted: Nov/ Dec 2013

The nose is very sweet. It smells more like and orange liqueur with hints of aniseed, juniper and bitter spices.  

Like the nose, the palate is very liqueur-like with extremely sweet, sugar coated orange and a touch of juniper but the orange dominates. Short and a bit bitter.
