Proof66 Notes

3 Howls Old Fashioned Gin uses heavier influences of citrus and cinnamon in their botanical set, suggesting a more modern approach to gin. More importantly, it is bottled at 114 proof—the legendary navy strength proof said to be declared by the British navy to ensure that gunpowder would still light even if gin were were to soak it. Compare with the traditional 80 proof and low 90 proof gins that dominate the market.

I expected a modern, herbal/spice heavy gin. I was wrong. This gin liberally employs a pine-heavy juniper and fairly heavy citrus. There are some spice notes, but they merely accentuate rather than dominate. Overall, I enjoy this gin and the price is right at $25. But, it is not my favorite. There are dryer gins like Tanqueray or Beefeaters, there are more flavorful gins like Citadelle, and there are gins with a nicer combination of dry and herbal like Desert Dry. This one, by contrast, gets a bit lost. It works well mixing. Drinking straight, the spice blend tasted a little awkward and unbalanced to me.
