Ultimate Gin Throwdown: Beefeater vs. Sapphire vs. Hendricks. Who wins?
I've been spending an extraordinary amount of time with my bottles of gin lately, and I'm perplexed. Sapphire is, IMHO, the vodka of gins - no character but packs a whollop. Hendricks is the opposite - full of aroma and flavors but perhaps a bit overdone and pretentious. Beefeater is my old standby - character and flavor, but in it's typically understated British fashion.
Are there any other gin savants in the audience? Have I missed a gem amongst the gins?
