    Tanqueray Ten

    Anybody pouring this? I think it's great stuff. Easy drinking on hot nights.

    It's a fabulous spicy, yet smooth gin.

    You think it's spicy? I'm not a good enough taster to be certain. But it's so fruity I didn't think of it as spicy.

    My memory is bad. I indulged last night and it is definitely spicy. It's just in a slightly different way then what I'm used to with bourbon.

    Yeah, not spicy like rye spicy. It has that juniper spicy thing thing going on, but remains silky smooth.

    I have a bottle and like it. It is, and is advertised to be, a little citrusy, if that is even a real word. I can't say it is spicy.

    It makes a great gin and tonic, though... just like its older brother.

    I am beginning to like Plymouth Gin, also.

    If fact, maybe all that alcohol is getting to my brain.........

    I find the Ten to be a bit smoother than the Plymouth. I guess my interpretation of spicy is tied in to a sort of citrus peel kinda flavor. The Plymouth was supposedly the first gin listed in a published martini recipe.

    You gin lovers will get a kick out of this: for years I had used Bombay Sapphire, Plymouth, or other high-end gins for my G&T's....but my father-in-law kept insisting that the best gin for G&T's was el cheapo Gilbey's. I have to admit, it has a pleasant taste that the expensive gins just can't equal (but *ONLY* in G&T's...I still use Plymouth for martinis!). I know it's weird, but try a side-by-side.

    As with vodka, I really see no sense in paying a lot of extra money for gin. I drank Gilbey's for years, when I was younger. I also had a fondness for Sir Robert Burnett's, which was even cheaper. Now, I pretty much hold the line at regular Tanqueray, Beefeater's, or Bombay. But I'm pretty sure Gilbey's would still do just fine.
