    Difference between Tanqueray and Tanqueray 10

    I imagine the answer to this will be the same as the one Chuck gave in the thread on Bombay Gin.

    I would like to know people's opinions of the Tanquerays. Is the T 10 really better than the regular, which is pretty darn good. I prefer it to Bombay Sapphire, I think. I didn't replace the Sapphire I had, well, I did, but with Tanqueray. I am on my third bottle of that.

    Anyway, what do people think?

    Personally, Tanqueray is the reason I thought I hated gin for so long. T10 is a different animal all together. I suspect the spice recipe is completely different, but that's just a guess.

    Hmm. That's interesting. Doesn't tell me whether I will like the Tanqueray 10 or not, but it certainly is interesting.

    Re: Difference between Tanqueray and Tanqueray 10

    Tanqueray has 10 stills. The No. 10 Still is very small and has a unique shape. They make Tan 10 in this still and the effects of the small still supposedly make for a crisper gin. The stills shape captures the botanicals flavor more and don't forget that Tan 10 is 94.6 Proof. If you like gin, IMHO Tan 10 is one of the best gin's out there. High proof and wonderful flavor.

    They use whole fresh fruits and a different recipe for the 10.

    I always used to enjoy the standard Tanqueray, but I've never tried the Ten. For the past ten years or so, I've stuck to Bombay and Beefeater.

    Re: Difference between Tanqueray and Tanqueray 10

    I mainly drink my gin with tonic water (1 part gin to 1 part tonic) so I use the regular Tanqueray. I have a bottle of T10 and it is a better tasting gin but for mixing with tonic the regular T is just as good.

    Again, IMO, T10 is a very nice gin, WAY better than regular T. Regular T is nothing like T10 on any level. Bombay is closer to Bombay Sapphire than T10 is to T.

    I noticed at the duty free stores to and from Windsor, Ontario, Canada that the T 10 is becoming a regular brand at a good price and in liters to boot!
