New Amsterdam Gin

They say that it's a gin "so smooth that you can drink it straight".  Surprisingly enough, they are right.  It has a light citrus flavor with a hint of juniper and a slight vanilla finish.  Where does a product called New Amsterdam come from?  California of course.

I've always loved gin, and I have the not so fond memories of past hangovers to keep me from coming back too often.

Update:  It does not mix well with tonic.  In fact, it's ghastly.  The bitterness of tonic makes the vanilla tastes artificial.

Cost: $14.15
Grade: C+
Cost Adjusted Grade: B
