Bonnington New Make Spirit (unpeated)

What they say

Bonnington unpeated new make spirit generated from Munton’s unpeated malted barley at less than 2 ppm phenol. Distillation cut is taken quite wide from 75% down to 62% ABV to assist with a fuller bodied and waxy character. Stills are designed with minimum reflux.

My tasting notes

  • Appearance Gin clear (0/20), slow, medium tears and legs.
  • Nose Sweet and cereal rich, malted barley, oat & honey flapjacks.
  • Taste Full-bodied, creamy, malty, biscuits, sweet reduced with water this retains its malty and waxy nature but exposed a little copper metallic and became a touch meaty.
  • Finish Medium, cereal and honey.
  • Overall Quite heavy and full-bodied in mouthfeel but with a lovely creamed barley nature, sweet but not overtly fruity. A distinct signature/character for Bonnington distillate.
