Monkey 47 Schwarzwald Dry Gin Review

Monkey 47 Schwarzwald Dry is an exhibition of extremely concentrated aromas and flavors, and exceptional balance. The aromas hop around from dried berries (cranberry, lingonberry, and raspberry) to spice to herbs and back to fruit again. The palate showcases fresh bursts of raspberry, as well as orange blossom, grapefruit peel, coriander seeds, and cardamom. Just when you’re wondering when the juniper is going to appear, it arrives on the finish and blankets the palate. Without a doubt, this is one of the finest gins money can buy.

Monkey 47 Schwarzwald Dry Gin Pros And Cons

Pros
  • Complex, expressive profile
  • Highly coveted and respected gin
Cons
  • Expensive outlier in the category
  • Not the classic “London Dry” profile some may be looking for
