Destileria Colombiana Tasting Notes

Posted: March 9, 2017 in Colombian Gin, Gin, White Spirits

Dictador ‘Treasure’, Colombian Aged Gin 43%

Produced from a 5 times distilled, sugar cane base spirit, aged for 35 weeks in oak.

12 botanicals including juniper, limon mandarino (lemon/ tangerine hybrid), ginger, black pepper, angelica and rosemary

Tasted: Feb 2017

The nose is full and fleshy with the crisp lemon and tangerine notes dominating. Hints of juniper, vanilla, lemon balm and subtle peppery spice follow.

Soft and subtly sweet with sugar coated lemon and tangerine with a lovely sharp/ sweet balance. A touch of oak adds body and the finish is long and lemony with a lightly floral finish. Relatively straightforward, but if citric gins are your things its pretty well made.
