Interesting, but ultimately not my thing

I love a G&T. Great summer drink. Light and easy. My preference for Hendricks is a neutral tonic, cucumber over ice.

Without the whole "cucumber is a prime botanical" spiel being shoved down your throat at any and every opportunity, I would defy anyone to actually notice the flavour being there. I went to a blind tasting, with 25 other bartenders and I don't think that any of them actually picked out the cucumber - the overriding impression at the blind tasting was that this was a flavourless, uninspiring, weak gin. In fact, this was picked as the poorest of the gins in the test, almost unanimously. Others in the test were (if I remember correctly) Beefeater, Tanqueray, Tanq 10, Bloom, Sipsmith, Bulldog, Sloanes and 209. I am currently in the process of removing this from our bar and educating customers that, just because something is marketed well (and to be fair, it is marketed VERY well), it does not make it a quality product.

Rose and cucumber are extremely prominent in both the flavour and scent of this gin. This adds an interesting flavour for martinis, and makes a pretty killer G&T. Ultimately though, juniper tends to take a back seat to the other flavours. I feel as though, while interesting at first it does not have as much potential for versatility or a true quinine and juniper flavour that normally defines gin. This gin is best used for G&T's, as the lime really contrasts the smooth cucumber flavour.

I don't personally enjoy the good old G&T, but Hendricks with tonic and a slice of cucumber is the best. Cant beat this drink.
