2013 Batch #1. Have been sitting on this awhile. Got in a trade from my buddy Videofrog.

Decent head. A bit of smoke on the nose with some florally goodness.

Nice and tart up front, and then you really get the gin in the back which lingers.

I really enjoyed this one. Another fine offering from our friends at JK. Glad I got to try it. (347 characters)

Opened my last one of these a few months back, it was drinking excellent, great tart/sour/smoke combination. (108 characters)

Pours a very hazy golden color with a thin head. Slow bubbles trickle up the glass. Smells sweetly floral, smokey, with some funk and barrel. Taste is delicious, but a little less complex than in the nose. Lots of tartness. Starts sweet and finishes dry. I don't know how much gin I get in this, to be honest. Floral. Mouthfeel could ideally be a little more prickly. Medium body. Tasty. (387 characters)
