Dusty Thursday: Virginia Gentleman 90 - The Fox
Virginia Gentleman 90, 45% abv
There is lots of sweet candy on the nose. The palate is sweet and a bit soapy with a touch of cough syrup which leads into a medicinal finish.
I poured some of this side by side with the standard issue Virginia Gentleman. Honestly, they aren't too different. The standard Gentleman has some bubblegum sweetness which is missing in the 90 proof version, but they are very similar and the extra five points of abv seems to make only a minor difference.
