I'm not sure I should be touting a non-bourbon blog on SB, but I've been reading gin reviews at theginisin.com for a couple years now. While I drink bourbons year round, my wife likes gin drinks in the summer. We got tired of basic London drys and have added in genevers, Plymouth, and Old Tom - still drink the London drys but not so much. theginisin reference is here because it recently mentioned how some aged gins are taking on a brown color, and how some craft gins are experimenting with different flavors, some of which approach whiskey profiles. F'rinstance, GreenHat gin here in WashDC has "seasonal" releases that match botanicals to the weather, sort of. In no way will it be mistaken for Gilbeys but I find it an interesting break from bourbon. Another info source: the book The Drunken Botanist is all about how distilled spirits including whiskeys are made and flavored. It gave me a better appreciation of the art and science behind my favorite spirits which is one reason I ended up at SB - so much to absorb from you all. As a bourbon lover, I like the move by craft distillers to experimenting with their products until their whiskeys are properly aged. If they take care of their gins, I expect they'll take care of their whiskeys.
