Barrel-Aged GinGin which spends some time in barrels, generally not more than a few months at a time, although there is no legal definition for this style.
"After one taste it is easy to tell that this is a gin crafted by a malt whisky aficionado. There are hints of earthy coriander, cardamom, and a telltale, wintergreen whiff of juniper. All of these flavors are framed with a hint of oak and a malty, cereal character. It is quite a delicious gin on its own as one would enjoy a fine Single Malt and would make for a divine Martinez."
