Cadenheads Classic Gin

IMG_20150721_142114

I decided to diverge from our usual Whisky offerings to give you my thoughts on a summer favorite of mine.

Nose:

Juniper berries, perfume, and dried citrus

Taste:

Juniper berries, cinnamon, citrus and sweet sap

Finish:

Warm winter spices and bittersweet lemonade

Score: 8

Thoughts: This is my favorite gin on the market and one of the few I would happily drink neat as well as mixed. It has a great price point (-25 quid) for such a tasty tipple. Great with tonic for the hot summer months (wishful thinking in Edinburgh right now) and an excellent addition to a hot Gin Toddy.

Gin Toddy Recipe:

2oz Gin

1 teaspoon white sugar

1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice

Boiling water

Directions: Mix gin, sugar and lemon in a mug. Add boiling water to taste. You can top off with a lemon slice and cloves to add a little something something.

Enjoy!
