Edinburgh Gin Infused Gins
For days #23 (yesterday) and #24 (today) i decided to combine them into a set of three reviews as I go over the Edinburgh Gin infused Gins.
I've previously put up notes for the Elderflower and Raspberry Gins but have decided to redo notes here for them all, as they aren't really ones that go well with Tonic i'm only sampling these ones straight.
Many thanks to the very generous folks at Spencerfield Spirits for the official samples.
Edinburgh Gin Elderflower Gin
First up is the lovely sweet Elderflower gin, i've had this previously and always find it very sickly sweet, which i love, my preference for this is straight over a touch of ice,
You can buy this gin from Master of Malt
|Bottle Name||Edinburgh Gin Elderflower Gin|
|Nose||This gin has a very clean nose and is exceedingly sweet with the elderflower coming through as the strongest note (which you would expect) then there's a hint of something more menthol/fresh mint like in the background could nose this all night long fell in love at first sniff|
|Taste||There is much more of the sweetness in here, it's sweetness by the buckload, like elderflower jam with a hint of something a little tarte to surprise you|
|Finish||clean crisp and very very sweet|
Edinburgh Gin Spiced Orange Gin
The most recent release in the range of flavoured gins i love the nose on this, with orange and cough medicine and i hear it works fantastically well in some mulled cider.
Pick up a bottle from Master of Malt
|Bottle Name||Edinburgh Gin Spiced Orange Gin|
There's a definite orange note in here which is surrounded by a medicinal-ness that reminds me of honey and lemon lockets and a touch of cough medicine, it's very sweet though.
|Taste||A lot tamer and more honeyed than i was expecting from the nose, with orange being the most prominent flavour in here, with gentle spices|
|Finish||sweet and easy to drink|
Edinburgh Gin Raspberry Gin
This was the first one i ever tried and one of the major reasons i like gin, this is fantastic on it's own and outstanding when added to a glass of cold prosecco.
Go get a bottle now from Master of Malt
|Bottle Name||Edinburgh Gin Raspberry Gin|
|Nose||Wow there is a massive slightly tarte Raspberry and blackcurrant nose that comes through first, it really is almost sour on the nose but like over ripe fruits not bitter|
|Taste||Super sweet on the palate with sugar coated raspberries with watermelon and crushed pear juices|
|Finish||Stunning sweetness, with sweet fruits|
