    I need to be honest. My review is biased, I've linked this gin to so many great memories it's hard to be objective. It got parties started in Miami, Rio de Janeiro, Prague, Rome and Brussels. Each time the first sip takes me back! Tanqueray is simply the best gin. It's got that specific and destinctive kick. It blends perfectly with the tonic creating an unbeatable cocktail. Maybe it's an acquired taste, but I mix it in about 50/50 gin and tonic and it's still pretty smooth. A few of these before going out and for sure some memorable nights will follow ;)

    Like Bombay Sapphire, this is a good, standard gin. It is not too strong, but it is not as refreshing as something like Bluecoat. I will do gin and ginger ale with this, but I do not like it in something like gin and tonic because I just can't deal with the pine needle-y taste from the juniper berries. Go with Hendrick's for a superior gin!

    I like the clean fresh bite. I drink it on the rocks.

    I prefer its smoothness over bombay and bombay saph.

    The best gin - period. Clean sharp with a terrific combination of subtle spices. Unless you're interested in more spicy gins, then I'd say Bombay Saphire. Tq #10 isn't as good as Bombay but very similar.

    Best buy in the middle range of gins. Makes super gin and tonics with Schwepps tonic water.

    This gin has a really great flavor to it.  It is a bit more fruity than others but that is how I prefer it.  It's hard to recommend this or bombay sapphire since I like them both and they both have different flavors to them, but if I had to pick I would say bombay since it seems a little smoother.  Still a great gin that works great in gin and tonics, highly recommended.

    Tanqueray London Dry Gin ($20) was judged the best gin in the San Francisco World Spirits Competition in both 2005 and 2007 and awarded a Double Gold Medal in 2006.

    The only Gin I can stomach straight up,but I'm a Bourbon & Beer kind of guy anyway.

    You can try Sapphire, Beefeater, Boodles, even Tanqueray 10, but you'll always come back to the green bottle.

    Delicious. It's got a deep juniper flavor. If you ever have a venison steak or duck, try this to wash it down.

    A wee more citrus then Bombay Sapphire- but elegant and smooth- great in a Gin and Tonic because of the citrus, while a little more flair and 'sparkle' in a Martini then Bombay Sapphire.

    The gold standard for Gin drinkers! You cannot have a authentic G&T; without it.

    Life wouldn't be worth living without the Tanqueray 10! Okay okay I am streching it a little bit, but h*ll it is the certainly the best gin out today. As far as I'm concerned its the best spirit on the market.

    Life wouldm't be worth living without the Tanqueray 10. Okay so sue me I'm going a little overboard, but it still is the #1 gin in my book. H*ll its the nuber #1 spirit for me.

    My favorite bottle design. Subtle, elegant, classy, stylish.. And the gin ain't bad(though I ain't a true gin fan)

    More bite than other premium Gins. Great in a Gin and Tonic, but a little strong for Martinis in my opinion.

    The best Gin on the market, make sure you drink it on the rocks with lemon, rub the lemon around the edge of the glass for the perfect refreshing drink

    I'll endorse any gin that is also endorsed by Snoop Dogg. Tanqueray and Tonic, yeah I'm f_ched up now! Also a key ingredient in Snoop's Gin and Juice.

    Tanqueray may say it's gin, but it sure doesn't taste like it. It has nothing on Boodle's or Beefeater. Tanq is only tolerable when mixed with more than one other mixer, not a gin n tonic.

    Very good. Dependable with no odd aftertastes.

    Joint fave for me, with Bombay Sapphire. Have you seen the thin bottle version of Tank?

    I have been ordering Tanqueray martinis for 20 years.

    Tanqueray really is the best gin. In blind taste tests with my friends, Tanqueray beat out everything else we could find, including Bombay Sapphire, Tanqueray 10, and several other elegant gins.

    I prefer a Sapphire martini, but noting beets a Tanqueray and Tonic. The premium Tanqueray 10 is perfection--and dangerous.

    Tanqueray is an excellent gin and a very close second to Bombay Sapphire, for my taste. And although Bombay is a better dry martini gin, I think Tanqueray makes a slightly better G & T - being a touch sweeter.

    I would give a five, but then what would you rate Tanqueray 10? Damn I love this stuff!!! If I had enough $$ to keep this on hand I'd be an alcoholic.

    It's excellent with some dry Vermouth and olive. When you pour it into a martini glass, you feel almost like James Bond, all sexy, like I'm gonna get a piece.

    Honestly, this is the best stuff! I believe that I have acquired a taste for hard alcohol and nothing, nothing, compares to the strength yet smooth taste of Tanqueray. It effects me more strongly than others. It is great to drink straight because it has a smooth unique taste. It also mixes particularly well with such beverages as 7up, and cranberry juice, but I guess that's just standard fare. This is my favorite.

    I know everyone wants to associate this fine speciman with Dr. Dre's "Nothin' But A G Thang," but there's more to love! A crisp, clear taste with fairly smooth aftershocks highlights this lovely liquor. Tastes great on the rocks and mixed. This is a bottle to write home about.

    Ghetto ass crap! It tastes like mouthwash. Can't get the crap out of my mouth, strong aftertaste. Good marketing though, 'cause lots of people are drinking it. Even Snoop Dog be sippin' on it, so you know it's marketed well.

    Together with Bombay Sapphire, the best mainstream gin for a Gin and Tonic. It's a little pricey but it is in a different class than the Nikolais and Gordon's of the world.

    It's not a great gin and tonic unless it's a Tanqueray and tonic.
