Review and Tasting
Sampled on 24/06/2019
Pungent confectionary raspberry and vanilla, reminiscent of Raspberry Mivvi ice-cream. Underlying piney gin botanicals.
Slightly sweet raspberry and vanilla Mivvi ice-cream-like flavours continue masking Caorunn's more traditional juniper and other botanical flavours.
Raspberry pavlova with lingering piney juniper and light peppery spice.
This flavoured gin delivers its promised ripe raspberry flavour with underlying gin botanicals and is sure to appeal to those seeking such a style of gin. However, as a more traditional gin fan, I'd like to have seen the raspberry and vanilla notes slightly less dominant so better integrating with juniper and Caorunn's other botanicals.
