Gilt Single Malt Scottish Gin
Welcome to Day 4 of #GinMonth as I review Gilt Single Malt Scottish Gin.
Gilt Gin is made by the same Scottish company which makes the famous Valt Vodka. It's based on single malt spirit, which is distilled five times from nothing but malted barley..
This is totally unlike any other Gin i've ever had, it's almost like a Balcones Baby Blue Texan Whisky on the nose and ful of caramel, buttscotch and puff candy, lovely stuff and well worth grabbing a bottle of.
If you feel the same pop on over to Master of Malt and pick one up now.
(straight) A very interesting if a little odd nose on this, reminds me a lot of Balcones Baby Blue Texan Whisky in that it's quite popcorn and butterscotchy, a touch of puff candy and an ever so gentle hint of juniper and flora hiding in the background.
(with tonic) Tamed down but still has that lovely fresh butterscotch and puff candy note coming through.
(straight) Quite fresh and easy going with caramel and butterscotch then it builds into a frenxy with floral notes and hints of cinnamon and nutmeg.
(with tonic) lots of citrusy fresh notes mix with caramel covered puff candy, yummy
(straight) Butterscotch Angel Delight sprinkled with crushed nutmeg
(with tonic) very fresh and caramelly
