For what it is, strong in Juniper&Citrus, but weak in spice, some burn. Works as gin and juice, does all right with red vermouth, but I didn't have it with dry vermouth, so I'm personally wonder how it is as a classic martini. It's cheap from my locale, could be at the lowest shelf item or the shelf above. Probably not the best introducing me-self to gin, so keep in mind I've not yet tasted the mainstream gins or any other gin after this one. The score given is on its own merits.

Tango (2017-04-14):
The juniper clashes with bitter citrus and barely makes a marginal decent martini, It is ok in Gin and Tonic. Gordon's Gin and Burnett's Gin are better for same money.

Like this for making a gin and tonic. About on par with Gordon's and I find the juniper flavoring just about right. For a G&T would not spend too much more money. Save my more expensive tastes if I'm having a martini; then it's Beefeater or Boodles. Still, Gilbey's is just right for making mixed drinks calling for gin

Gilbey's Gin makes a decent gin and tonic as well as a decent martini at 5 parts Gilbey's /1 part vermouth Gilbey's nose is heavy Juniper with citrus and cinnamon. The entry is peppery with heavy juniper & bitter citrus with licorice, cinnamon, grapefruit finish.The juniper clashes with bitter citrus. It is not my cup of gin. I like Gordon's Gin and Burnett's gin better. for same price.

Pretty straight forward gin. Nothing special, but not bad either. If you aren't a gin lover or snob, this will do OK filling a spot in your liquor cabinet.
