I got a feeling all answers end up the same brand of gin. I'm not much of a gin drinker but I have a feeling that to me they would all taste the same...unlike whiskey or beer.

The last mentioned has this bit of descriptive salesmanship :


Nose: Dry juniper with zesty citrus and then some warm spicy notes.
Palate: Juniper, dark chocolate and citrus zest upfront on the palate, followed by warm, spicy notes of cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger.
Finish: Full bodied and robust leaving a dry finish.

Reminds me of a high dollar cigar:

The highly sought after Chateau Grand Cru Series easily ranks among the industry’s most luxurious cigars. It’ll captivate you from first glance, thanks to one of the prettiest Costa Rican wrappers you’ll ever cross. This oily, chestnut-hued leaf conceals a superior blend of Nicaraguan, Honduran, and Costa long-leaf tobaccos secured by a flavorful Ecuadorian binder. Expect a rush of toasty, woody nuances supported by earth and a subtle (but savory) touch of black cherry. The finish is sweet, and lingers long on the palate, completing a wonderful sensation for the senses.

I remember reading about how Ernest Hemmingway while on some African adventure had a mishaps of some sort, I can't remember what, that caused him some broken bones. He was taken on some difficult longish trip to medical attention. To ease his pain he drank Gordons Gin and found it wonderful as an anesthetic. When I buy gin.. about once a year...probably less.. I buy Gordons. It's cheap and if I break something I'll drink it on the way to the hospital.
