Known in the Philippines (this gin's domestic market) as GSM, Ginebra S. Miguel is the world's best-selling gin brand. A fact all the more incredible as, if you're not from the Philippines, then you've probably not even heard of it, yet alone tried a GSM&T made with it. Read more

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 02/02/2012

Appearance

Crystal clear.

Aroma

Subdued nose with little discernible juniper but faint high alcohol spirit notes – possibly butanone.

Taste

Slightly sweet palate with a mildly syrupy mouthfeel (glycerine perhaps?). While slightly hidden on the nose, juniper is very apparent on the palate – almost one-dimensionally so, with cracked black pepper spirit being the only other notable flavour.

Aftertaste

Not unpleasant juniper finish with a perceived creaminess but lacking complexity.
