Tanqueray No. 10 Gin and Tanqueray Rangpur Gin

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.

First, is Tanqueray No. 10—a response to Bombay Sapphire. Tanqueray 10 (94.6 proof) is sharply packaged and a very sophisticated gin—far too complex to use in a  gin and tonic or salty dog. This gin is for sipping neat or as a martini. Terrific. (Rating  *****) If you would like to order a bottle online, click here.

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.
