Review: Citadelle Reserve Gin 2009 Vintage
Versus the 2008 version, the only difference in recipe I can tell is one month less in oak: 5 months vs. the 2008 bottling’s 6 months. It’s still a hazy golden hue, with spice and citrus, and a little vanilla finish imparted by the time in cask. Just as good as the 2008 — perhaps a little smoother, even. I like it a lot and recommend it just as highly as last year’s model.
Even better: It can now be found for cheaper than the 2008, about $5 less per bottle. Win.
