4,5 stars. Great traditional gin, more complexity than Beefeater or Gordons, smooth, bit sweet, works best in a G&T.

not a bad showing at the price. Mixes incredibly well in a Tom Collins or other fruity gin drinks. Preferred Bombay Sapphire in a martini. Well deserved of its reputation as a fine gin. Strong juniper flavor and burn. A benchmark.

A really good classic gin but not for the fan of modren less juniper dominated gins. Good classic gin at a good price.

About as big a gin name as there is. Its alright, but overall a boring sipper. Its best used in cocktails. If you want a gin experience, look elsewhere.

In a 4 tasting with North Shore#6, Magellan and Rouge Pinot Noir this held its own just fine. It lost its flavor in a gin&tonic but was best overall in a Martini and Maiden's Prayer. Little too much bite when it's neat. Throw a little vodka in it and it will smooth right out to make a great martini.

The first whiff of this Gin and I felt like I was sitting with my mother and grandmother on the patio on a late summer day. I know Gin and Tonic, and a Gin Martini are classics, and while I strive to fit in, I just can't. Both drinks failed for me, and I couldn't muster the strength to finish. On the brighter side, mixed in a Maiden's Prayer, I felt something different. This drink reminded me of something I would have chugged and loved in college! Sorry Tanqueray, I really tried to like you

I tried Tangueray neat at first then mixed with tonic, and last as a martini. I really didn't care for Tangueray neat. Although it had a good fragrance, the taste was too sharp and acid. However, mixed with some tonic and a little lime, I was set for a real relaxer on a hot afternoon. Good for you, Tangueray! I thought it made a decent martini, but the real shine came through when I tasted it in a "Maiden's Prayer". In that drink Tanguery showed that Tanguery is still a favorite of mine.

Not sure if Tanqueray has changed their recipe, but it tastes awful now. North Shore No. 11 Gin and Plymouth Gin destroy Tanqueray. Not even in the same class.
