I don't think I've it, the Boodles, around these parts.
As I type these words, I'm drinking (gasp) Seagram's in a G&T.(fn. 1) Tastes like "gin." I do love a mid-week day off.
I've liked Tanq and Beefeater in the past, without really trying to choose between the two. I haven't tried the Bombay Sapphire, being somewhat turned off by the plants printed on the bottle... Could I assume that the Bombay has more overt plant notes than the Beefeater?
1. Okay, actually it's not a G & T, it's a little thing I thought up myself, goes something like this:
Twist a lime quarter over some rocks, add two ounces gin, one ounces dry vermouth, three ounces tonic. Kind of a martini with tonic and lime, or, if you prefer, a gin 'n tonic with vermouth. Probably someone else has come up with this, but if not, I call it, The Checks
