Top reviews for Monkey 47 Schwarzwald Dry Gin (500ml):
― A new fave. I’ve been a Bombay Sapphire drinker for years and this smooth, easy drinking gin may have moved into the top spot.
― The juniper is very distinct without being overwhelming. Only downside was the size of the bottle. Would definitely love to keep as a home bar staple.
― Glorious gin and one that I could sip by itself. Wonderful balance of aromatics and alcohol. Not as direct as a London dry gin, and combines floral, pine and some spice/black petter notes. The only disappointment is the size of the bottle....

Appearance / Color
Clear with a silvery, glycerous appearance.
Nose / Aroma / Smell
Crisp and fresh on the nose. The initial perfumed burst is of sweet berry / juniper and assorted fresh citrus peel; further aeration releases pine needle, lavender and clove-like scents. Distinctive and somewhat unconventional, some tasters found the aromatics a little cologne like.
Flavor / Taste / Palate
On the palate, this begins soft and glycerous, gradually building intensity, climaxing in an explosion of peppers; Mid palate is off dry and oily with juniper, lavender, pine needle and spice. Some tangy notes in the mouth add extra freshness to the traditional characters. Fairly complex.
Good balance of all components and racy, fresh finish, flavors persisting into the long, dry after taste.
