Review #: 541
Description: Big Bottom Barrel Aged Gin
Background: Big Bottom is coming from Oregon and uses a 16 botanical base and a solera blend of Hungarian, Oregon, and American White oak for about a year of aging.
Distillery – Big Bottom
Bottler – Big Bottom
Brand – Big Bottom
Selection – N/A
ABV – 45.5%
Age – NAS
Nose – Sweet lemon candy, vanilla cake, gingerbread, touch of pine and lavender, juniper is well integrated
Taste – Lemon custard, lavender vanilla syrup, sweet oak. Nice richness
Finish – Lemon becomes tart but there is still some nice sweet vanilla and a touch of oak. Fairly short and light though.
Would I buy a bottle? Wouldn’t be upset with a bottle
Thoughts: It’s a nice balance with the oak and the botanicals. Not too woody and not too overpowering from the botanicals. I wish there was a little bit more on the finish as it kind of just falls off.
