Don't worry, this bottle won't last long.

I've had the vanilla flavored cognac (Navan, I believe was the brand name) in a coffee drink after dinner one night. Can't really remember what else was in there other than some whipped cream on top. It was really tasty though.

Well I finally went out and just bought the stuff (Stellar gin) to see what it is like. Basically it tastes like citrus vodka, which is what I expected. It has a nice flavor but like another person mentioned, it really is not what I would call gin. It bears almost no resemblance to dry gin.

So it's gin with a splash of triple sec?

I'd say that pretty much describes it - although it's more of a blend of citrus than orange as triple sec is.

It sounds a bit like the RTD cans of gin and whatever. Over here, they don't actually contain any gin, usually white spirits like vodka.
