Citadelle Gin - Its Spicy!
I had heard many good things about Citadelle and so I picked up a bottle and gave it a shot. Here is what I found, first smell, very pleasant. Next I took a shot, I noticed a nice spice to it and not overwhelming heat from the alcohol. It is an excellent gin for martini's. For those that are vodka snobs, a real martini is made with gin and not vodka. Mixed in gin and tonic, it is good, though I prefer my gin and tonic to be for of a citrus base like Stellar Gin or Wet Gin. Vodka appeals to the masses largely because it has no taste so it mixes well. Give gin a shot and open yourself up to a whole new realm of flavor. I would rate Citadelle very favorably.
