Bluecoat Gin

This will be part "1 of n" reviews leading up to my improved version of a classic cocktail. 

Hint.  It rhymes with "Aviation". 

This is a great American style Gin.  Which means that it is a  London Dry done right.  It has all of the classic flavors of a London Dry, yet its much more approachable.  One of the questions that I ask myself when trying to discern the quality of a gin is... "Does it make me wince?"  This gin does not.  It has a lighter juniper flavor than your typical London Dry, with a bit of orange and other citrus notes.  It's quite nice by itself over the rocks, which is a lot more than I can say about most other gins.
