Jensen's Old Tom Gin Reviews
Tasting Notes by Tim F
N: More intense than the Jensen's Dry, and again the juniper is very prominent, this time accompanied by grapefruit notes, lavender, coriander and a very pleasant meadowy character. Becomes more floral with time, with hints of orange flower water.
P: Extremely concentrated blend of the botanical aromas from the nose: juniper,liquorice, some citrus. Strong violet and lavender mid-palate. A slightly cereally background with sage and a natural residual sweetness.
F: Long and powerful with the citrus, juniper, liquorice and floral notes all lingering. A slightly menthol quality.
C: More challenging than the Dry due to the powerful, uncompromising flavours. Perhaps less approachable neat for this reason, but this Old Tom will be a knockout in the right cocktails.

Tried it at a friend's......took the rest of the bottle home with me!! It's brilliant.
Try this in a Tom Collins since this is, clearly, what goes in a Tom Collins! The flavours add much more depth!
I am normally a Hendricks girl but this is truly stunning...
I tried this last night in "The Hide" on Bermondsey St. It is superb, I am ordering a bottle now.
Sorry Guys - I am going to beat the drum again for this excellent product. It makes an amazing 'earthy' and stimulating gin and tonic - say farewell to 'blandness' and buy a bottle
Buy a bottle - you will not be disappointed........I think its marvellous..........
Magical - as the tasting notes say 'too much' - for me at least - to drink neat but it makes an highly individual G and T
