The Jonge is clear, with a nose of white pepper, orange zest, juniper, and coriander; the latter two dominate in the mouth. So far that may not sound too unusual to most gin drinkers. The texture, however, is creamy, oily, and full; the gin is smooth, with a substantial finish. This gin is made for enjoying neat; although it retains its character in a martini or with simple mixers like tonic water, it generally loses some of its complexity in cocktails. Even in simple mixed drinks I lost the interest of the mouthfeel; why mess with something that stands well alone?
