    Buck's Fishing @ Camping, Connecticut Ave NW. Jason made it for us (well, we helped), but don't let Chef know we use the parsley in drinks; kitchen'll want a cut.

    Oh, yeah, in my post above, it should be "palate" not "pallet". We don't clean pallets at the bar.

    Have any of you guys tried the Monkey 47? I picked up a bottle recently after it was much hyped at my local store, and it did not disappoint. It's pretty hard to describe in it's entirety, but I will say it's the only gin that I've picked up jasmine, citrus, juniper, dried berries, bay leaf and lemon zest, all in the same sip. I'll let the professionals do the talking, but I'd highly recommend picking up a bottle if you haven't already. Check this out : http://spiritsjournal.klwines.com/kl...to-heaven.html

    Very much enjoying the bottle of Leopold Bros. Navy Strength I picked up. Makes a hell of a martini.

    Thanks, Happy. I looked right at it and passed even though I like Leopold Bros. products. I will not do that again.

    Re: Gin forum

    A few weeks ago I stumbled across a few dusty bottles of Leyden's gin and an older label Plymouth gin.

    From what I could gather on the internet, this stuff is a Dutch gin that came over to the US in the late 90's, and has since been re-branded Van Gogh gin. I later saw a Van Gogh gin at another store across town, but did not buy it.

    The Leyden's tastes awesome. I could enjoy it neat. So I'm going to try a Van Gogh soon to see if it is truly the same stuff.

    Since I last wrote in this forum I also tried Mayfair, with which I was not impressed, and The Botanist, which I do enjoy.

    I have the feeling that Van Gogh may be my new gin of choice. I'll know more in the fall when I get back on land and do some more sipping.

    tbt
