EDINBURGH Gin, $34.99, 43 percent alcohol (86 proof)
Aroma: Lingering just behind the dose of juniper are wildflowers, red fruits, pine, heather and a savory licorice.
Taste: At first, very fruity in the mouth with a hard candy effect. Then if develops the pine of the nose as well the anise and other spices, becoming richer, almost oily.
Finish: The finish recalls the hard candy and some spice and lays out for a length of time extensive for a gin and with unusual depth.
