The Strathearn Gin Triple Pack

Strathearn oaked highland ginPart of my birthday present back in May from my wife was the Strathearn Gin triple pack, and i was really impressed with most of it.

The Classic Gin didn't do it for me, mainly as it has a real strong aniseed note which i don't do, the other two though, the Oaked Highland and Heather Rose, are cracking and if you like gin you really should give these guys a try, they are really worth it.

If you fancy trying these or others from the Strathearn range though why not grab a bottle or a sample from Master of Malt


Strathearn Classic Gin

Strathearn Classic GinPart of my birthday present back in May from my wife was the Strathearn Gin triple pack, from which this Classic Gin was part of it.

I really wasn't too keen on this one, i'm not huge on aniseed flavours and this gin must have some fennell or somethign aniseed based in it so it just tasted very much like pernod etc to me which is not for me.

(straight) initially all i got from the glass was aniseed (which i'm really not a fan of at all, in fact i hate it) but then it does go a little lighter with more citrus notes coming through particularly fresh lime and crushed lemongrass

(with tonic) it's the dreaded aniseed, it's back and with a vengeance, i really don't like that note and i can't get passed it.

(straight) oh hell it's just pure aniseed, way way too much aniseed for me, it's like straigh sambuca, really not for me and masks everything else there.

(with tonic) aniseed again but this time with some citrus notes of lemon and lime creeping in ever so slightly

(straight) sorry, yuk aniseed

(with tonic) aniseed and more aniseed with a hint of lemon

Strathearn Heather Rose Gin

Another cracker of a gin, this one has soft citrus fruits combining with floral nots and rosewater turkish delight, very delightful stuff indeed.

If you fancy trying it though why not grab a bottle or a sample from Master of Malt

 

(straight) initially very citrussy on the nose, lots of lemon and lime peel, sweet vanilla creeping in and then there's rosewater, very much turkish delight - the proper stuff - to me with some floral notes.

(with tonic) rosewater turkish delight, almost jelly like and lots of citrus notes coming in along with it.

(straight) sweet citrus fruits then bitter lemon creeps in, cloudy lemonade and hints of flora, does remind me or rolling through heather when hillwalking as a kid

(with tonic) sweet citrus and rosewater, some heathery flora notes underlying it

(straight) builds quite spicy on the end of the palate.

(with tonic) sweet and citrussy.

Loads of butterscotch, vanilla and american cream soda in this gin which is totally up my street, cracking stuff, utterly cracking stuff, if you like gin you need this in your life..

If you fancy trying it though why not grab a bottle or a sample from Master of Malt

 

(straight) Fresh and creamy notes in here, very buttery, with gentle oak woodiness creeping in along with edges of butterscotch and vanilla ice cream

(with tonic) This has totally gone all American Cream Soda, i love this, it's my childhood in a glass.

(straight) Oaky with hints of american cream soda and butterscotch, some vanilla tablet (without the grainyness),very easy to drink.

(with tonic) American Cream Soda and lots of lovely lemon peel coming in, yummy

(straight) sweet butterscotch and american cream soda.

(with tonic) vanilla and lemon
