The nose is bright and awash with orange blossoms and coriander. Quite nice, very inviting, and decidedly contemporary.
The palate of Larios 12 Botanicals Premium Gin is still bright with lots of citrus: a melange of tangelo, orange, and particularly Mineola. The mid-palate signals a shift wherein juniper and Pfeffernüsse cookie excites the palate. Grapefruit rind on the finish. It’s a well played, citrus forward gin. Although the overall impression is largely citrus-forward, it does offer some nice counterpoints; however, unless you’re a fan of the citrus-forward-contemporary-style, it might be a little too far out there. That being said, I like the fresh vibrancy of the citrus flavor, and I think it works well in citrus-forward gin cocktails like the gimlet or gin rickey which could benefit from a little more. The downside is that the juniper notes mid-palate are somewhat an afterthought, and don’t hold much sway when mixed. It’s strongly citrus forward.
Someone who really liked this type of gin will say that the bright citrus aroma and palate makes it a great mixer. Someone who is a fan of more traditional gins might be a little put off by its “one-note” and juniper as a bit player character.
A Spanish gin made using 12 botanicals which are distilled five times. Larios 12 is made with botanicals including wild juniper, nutmeg, angelica root, coriander, Mediterranean lemon, orange, tangerine, mandarin, clementine, grapefruit, lime and orange blossom. Wait a minute… One, two, three… There’s 12 of them! Just like in the name! What a coincidence! This is a citrus-heavy gin, so go in expecting big helpings of lemon and orange notes. Ought to do very well in mixed drinks, and any cocktails that really love citrusy deliciousness
Overall, Larios 12 Botanicals Premium Gin
Despite the bright citrus on the palate, I find it a little too “one note” and perhaps a little unbalanced in favor of citrus. It does some good things; however, I think there’s many others executing the citrus-forward contemporary style with a little more grace. Larios 12 Botanicals Premium Gin is a decent gin, and a good value at its price point.
