Nice. I like that you can taste each component, although perhaps this makes for the slight disharmony I'm experiencing. 4.27.

From other users

Made with Tanqueray Old Tom. Insistent alcohol presence (merits a long stir), but interesting flavors underlying it. Lovely. (4 stars)
Aka the Phillip Martin (3 stars)
Complex, with funky Ransom flavors coming through strongly. Would be much milder with Hayman's or a London Dry. (4 stars)
