Cask-Aged Gin from the marvellous Ableforth's! Made by taking tiny "octave" casks (roughly a fifth of the capacity of standard hogsheads), and filling them with the multi-award-winning Bathtub Gin, the spirit is then aged for between three to six months before bottling.
Thanks to the large surface area to volume ratio of these small casks, the gin gains all kinds of complexity and flavour during these months.
The result is a wonderfully spicy, rich and buttery gin. Although no longer released in individual batches, nothing about the production of this fantastic gin has actually changed so fill yer boots!
Nose: Rich juniper notes and soft caramelised orange. It's very mellow, but with a depth of botanicals that draw you further and further in. Creamy soft butter and vanilla sweetness.
Palate: A velvety mouthfeel, it rolls easily over the tongue with that wonderful creamy orange sweetness. Juniper and sugared peel roll in and fade out slowly into the finish.
Finish: Orange creams, with a smooth, long-lasting sweet softness in the mouth.
Overall: The cask ageing has added such smoothness and creaminess to this gin. It's wonderful stuff.

I have never tasted a gin so redolent of Christmas. Better than both plain bath tub and Old Tom as it combines its sweet spice with a smoothness on the tongue.

This is infinitely better than the bottle I tried a couple of years ago. It's aparrently now changed to being matured in 50 litre ex-bourbon, and the change is both delicious and welcome. Steer clear of new oak guys.

A lot of products like this claim to be cask aged, but it feels more like the gin and the cask were ships in the night. This has clearly had a much more meaningful relationship with the cask, and it's made this gin the liquor equivalent of a 'man of the world'.

Easily one of the best Gins going!

I was told that the recipe has now changed on this bottle.It used to be matured in brand new casks, but is now matured in casks that held few bourbon.It's much less oaky, and much sweeter now - I prefer it this way.

If you don't like Oak, stay away - this is very oaky.

The oak influence is really big on this.

WOW what a flavoursome Gin. Whether it was the hint of Vim from the bath-tub or the oak? cask we really enjoyed this unusual taste. Pity we can't afford a case of it.
