    Actually, I prefer Boodles or the knock off version Boords. Gilbeys is okay, but a bit pedestrian.

    And, yes, it must have some assertiveness. We had a bottle of Plymouth recently and it was disappointing. I believe I muttered "gin for vodka drinkers" on several occasions. Hmmm, maybe muttered isn't exactly right . . .

    Plymouth Navy Strength; my favorite for a martini. The regular is fine too.
    Hendricks; w/ tonic and a slice of cucumber.

    It's faster horses, younger women, older whiskey and more money.

    I was initially not a big fan of gin, but it's starting to win me over... I really actually like a drink that some people think is the pre-cursor to the Martini which is called a Martinez...

    I am not sure if it's juniper based but I dig Plymouth.

    I am also not sure if Hendrick's is juniper based (my guess is no? because it seems more mellow and has that cucumber thing going on...) is another favorite also.

    I think I make a decent Martini, but they for some reason always seem to knock me on my a$$!!! I can't have many of them, so I don't really make them much...

    Then you must be making them right.

    The token "whisper" of vermouth is there to give the very civilized name of dry martini to what would otherwise be cold gin.
