Scotch Gin?

There's More to Scotland Than Whisky
Jack Bettridge
Posted: August 19, 2011

(continued from page 1)

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.

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.
