The second version of the Blind Tiger Gin by Thomas and Sophie of Deluxe Distillery reveals its Imperial Secrets. This time they didn’t choose malted barley, which makes it a more accessible Gin. However this doesn’t mean that it isn’t as good as the Piper Cubeba. It’s a different production process and both have their own benefits. New botanicals in this spirit are three kinds of Tea. The result is an excellent layered and well-balanced Gin.
The subtle addition of carefully selected lemon peel, lemongrass, bitter almond & grains of paradise gives this Blind Tiger gin its warming spiciness. This lingers sumptuously on the tongue. Blind Tiger Imperial Secrets is to be savoured neat, over ice, or with the mixer of your choice.
Blind Tiger Gin Imperial Secrets Tasting Notes
The highly balanced and surprisingly smooth Blind Tiger Imperial Secrets opens with a complex nose of matured grain spirit, juniper, and spice from grains of paradise and bitter almond. On the palate, higher notes of citrus, coriander, and lemon grass bleed through, backed up by a warming glow of both the imperial black tea and the 45% alcohol grain spirit which lingers on in the aftertaste. Aroma and palate are interspersed by floral notes from the tea which play a prominent role in the grand finale.
