Very flavorful gin. Extremely flavorful, that is. Tons of juniper with tons of herbal to go along with it. Their blend of herbs gives an interesting flavor which is hard to describe. Perhaps something along the lines of savory (the herb). Maybe some E. Coast herb of some sort? In spite of the 47% abv, this stuff goes down smooth- likely because of the big flavor. The more I drink, the more I grow to enjoy this stuff. Imagine a Citadelle with more juniper and less complex but more unique and more emphasized herbs. I still prefer Citadelle, but this stuff will definitely be on the shelf for when the mood is right.

A beautiful gin. Crisp as cold air but full of flavor. I love this for martinis.

I got a bottle of this on a whim and I absolutely don't regret it. It definitely replaced Hendricks as my favorite gin.

I finally got a bottle of this gin last month. Being a PA native living in Oregon (where its not available), Ive wanted to try Bluecoat for a while. An unscheduled trip back east provided the opportunity to bring a bottle back to the Wild West. To me, a gin must be good in a dry martini to be a truly fine gin. Since Boodles taste changed a couple of years ago, Tanqueray has been my favorite gin. Naturally, I compare every new gin I try to my favorite. While Bluecoat is not now my favorite gin, I really like its complexity. Dont waste this stuff on fruity drinks. It stands proudly on its own quite well. Give it a few drops of vermouth and a squad of impaled olives and enjoy.

Was trying this out as a replacement for Citadelle because I can't get that in my area. It is very good stuff, but it is too floral for me. I tried it on the rocks, and the floral aromas were overpowering to the point where it became almost like drinking soap. That said, I could definitely understand why someone would like it and I can tell objectively that it's a quality product.

A bit to much citrus for me. I enjoyed it more in a martini with a good bit of vermouth rather than dry . Good but didn't live up to the hype for me.

This stuff is unbelievably tasty! It has a light, refreshing flavor that begs to be sipped in an ice cold martini on a hot summer day.

Almost perfect. Balanced, elegant, and mature without being severe, this is a great martini gin. (And martinis are ONLY made with gin, damnit.)

An outstanding gin that is a sharp departure from the usual. Skillfully made, a creative blending of spices and flawless execution in distillation. Don't let the low price fool you - this is a top notch gin -better than some that cost twice the money and is cheaper than many in the premium category. We are seeing a new frontier in gin. One of the best gins I have had -ever. If I could I would replace my blood with this.
