Bloom Sloe Gin
Welcome to Day 18 of #GinMonth as I review Bloom Sloe Gin.
A wonderful sample of gin provided to me by the very lovely Charlie (@The_Lady_Sybil) from The Gin Fuelled Blue Stocking, many thanks for the sample!
It is made by macerating hand-picked sloes in Blooms award-winning gin which features a floral botanical selection, including honeysuckle and chamomile.
This one unfortuanately isnt for me, i'm not a fan of aniseed or liqorice so it just didnt work for me at all.
Go try one, pop on over to Master of Malt and pick one up now.
(straight) Quite woody (more like broken branches of a tree) and dried autumn leaves with the remnants at the bottom of a spice cupboard
(with tonic) fresher, almost like flat coca cola with dried autumn leaves at pot pouri coming through.
(straight) quite aniseedy and tarry, syrupy in nature with hints of bark and liqorice
(with tonic) quite an odd aniseed note now that has gone really syrupy with hint of fresh citrus in the background
(straight) aniseed and syrup
(with tonic) aniseed
