In the late 1990s, we reviewed Tanqueray Malacca (see review here), a variation on the original Tanqueray. We think highly of Tanqueray Gin, and we enjoyed the Malacca twist on it. Malacca eventually disappeeared from the market, but in its place haev come two additional Tanquerays.
The second recent Tanqueray offering is Tanqueray Rangpur. This 82.6 proof gin offers a fresh lime flavor, which makes for an interesting variant on the usual gin and tonic. Standard Tanqueray is 94 proof; Rangpur is 82.6 proof, making it much more approachable for the novice whose palate would be overwhelmed by standard Tanqueray.
We like it. (Rating ****). To order a bottle, click here.
