The Tailor Made Spirits Company Tasting Notes

Posted: April 21, 2017 in Australian Gin, Gin

The West Winds Gin Barrel Expedition Maidenii Voyage 45%

Aged in casks which previously contained Maidenii sweet Vermouth

Tasted: Dec 2016

Nose: Winey red fruit, rose petals and cinnamon to begin, followed by juniper, grapefruit and orange. Lovely intensity with the sweet red fruits balancing the alcohol.

Palate: Sweet-ish red fruit and hints of juniper and cinnamon. Good intensity but the balance has shifted in favour of the wine cask.

Finish: Long an smooth with lingering spicy, winey red fruits.

Conclusion: Interesting and probably wine cask finished, which is a little too dominating
