nginious! Cocchi Vermouth Cask
Tasted neat, the Cocchi Vermouth Cask makes its presence known, not just with the influence on the colour, having turned the gin from clear to a pale hue, but also transforming the nose to become both resinous and woody. To taste the mouth-feel is silky and the juniper is more prominent, both are attributes that combine well for a Martini. Cardamom is also stronger and extends the finish.
As an "aged gin", this is on the lighter end of the sub-category, partly because what has been added in terms of flavour are the woody notes from a barrel, in addition to elements of the previous occupant – Cocchi Vermouth.
