94 points The Tasting Panel: "Finished in Sauvignon barrels, this 92-proof spirit has a medium toast and a light golden-copper hue. Clove and cinnamon season mango on the nose as flavors of mandarin orange and pepper cascade on the tongue. There's a mild echo of juniper and apricot on the finish. (Jan/Feb 2019)"

Not your grandfather's gin! Vastly different from the juniper-heavy gins of the past, No. 209 opens with a beautifully aromatic nose of predominately citrus and floral notes with a hint of spiciness. First across the palate are the citrus high notes, with lemon predominate followed by a hint of orange. As the spirit warms in the mouth, delicate floral notes are liberated from the bergamot and coriander. Mid palate, there is a pepper-like warmth from the emerging cardamom and juniper with a wonderful counterpoint from the mint-like components of the cardamom. As the gin passes the palate, the cassia and other warm spice notes become prominent. The cassia in particular will linger in the aftertaste, encouraging another sip.
