This is the new high ABV bottling from one of our favourite Aussie gin producers. At 52%, Poor Toms Fool Strength promises a rich, classic, full-bodied gin with a whiff of grapefruit and an all-night-long liquorice/juniper finish. Perhaps best in an ultra-dry martini with an olive, a thirsty G&T, or shaken into a Last Word. Garnish with anything – this gin can handle it.
Moderate aromas, hinting at juniper, orris root, subtle grapefruit and cool mint. Opposite in the mouth with an intense attack of piney juniper, lemon, grapefruit and late liquorice root. Peppery and warming to finish, but overall creamy – almost oily. The texture is a delight. Shows excellent length. 52% Alc./Vol.
