Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes
 
Appearance / Colour
Clear with a silvery, glycerous appearance.
 
Smell / Nose
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.
 
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.
 
Finish
Good balance of all components and racy, fresh finish, flavours persisting into the long, dry after taste.

An extraordinary Gin. Period.

Monkey 47 is distilled by Christoph Keller for Alexander Stein of Black Forest Distillers. Monkey 47 is very much a novelty within the Gin Universe, unique because of its low production and a real difference in style and taste
 
Monkey 47 Schwarzwald Gin is obtained by double distillation of grain and a third distillation with botanicals, aged in clay pots. Made with 47 botanicals and bottled at 47%, they also use a secret weapon typical to the Black Forest in the mix - cranberries.
