Fruity. Maybe a little too sweet for me, but it would make for a nice gin & tonic. I think I'd rather have Gordon's.

FWIW...

I've enjoyed New Amsterdam straight up, with perhaps a few cubes, as an easy drinking accompaniment to a good cigar...

I like New Amsterdam Gin and consider it the best cheap gin I've had (about $17 for a handle here). I really enjoy Hendricks (modern style gin), but this is a much more economical alternative. My favorite yet is Monkey 47 Schwarzwald Dry Gin.

I've been trying to be concise with reviews, so I wrote a haiku:

New Amsterdam Gin:
sweeter than what I'm used to
but fruity and nice
