    All About Gin, Generally

    I've been searching all over for descriptions of the different flavors of gin brands and I can't find anything very comprehensive, just that "so-and-so brand is better just because I say so" and comments like that. I'd like to take the time to compare flavors myself, but I can't get myself to buy a bottle of every brand at one time just to have a tasting (especially if I don't like some of them). Plus, that would be quite an expensive endeavor and I would prefer to only spend my money on gins that I would expect to like. So, can someone please give a fairly thourough description of the flavor of many of the leading brands of gin including Tanqueray, Bombay Sapphire, Boodles, Beefeater, Gordon's, etc... I know right now that I really like Gordon's, so maybe even a comparison to that one might help, but I also know that every brand is very unique with juniper being what holds them together. Anything would be greatly appreciated just so that I can expand my gin repretoire without wasting too much money. Thanks.
