Tanqueray Gin No. Ten
The Tanqueray Gin No. Ten huge bouquet initially offers citrusy aromas that evolve to include harmonious notes of pineapple, grapefruit, allspice, pine sap and beeswax. The palate entry highlights the orange/lemon peel and the angelica components while the midpalate features more of the juniper and earthy cassia. Concludes zestily and savory.
