Overall Bluecoat American Dry Gin is not “my cup of martini” but would likely appeal to others. The overwhelming strong perfume sharpness is off putting for my personal taste. In my opinion this particular gin would need substantial vermouth to soften the charm of traditional martini lure and generous mixers to soften the intense fragrant flavor in whimsical contemporary pours.

Bluecoat American Dry Gin Tasting Notes

Bluecoat American Dry Gin - photo copyright Cheri Loughlin47% alcohol. 94 proof.

Aroma: No burn. Waxy. Faint but definitely gin with juniper notes. Stale bathwater – the kind with bath salts that have lost a bit of their perfume.

Taste: Oh! Wrinkled my nose immediately. Perfume indeed! Bitterness too. Stab of citrus pith along with the good oils from the skins. Much more heat than the nose lets on which is a good thing for this gin. Outdoorsy, green sharpness.
