Previous reviews:

20/February/2016
Appearance: (sample bottle vintage: 2015, bottle No. 68) Hazy, crimson red. (Some sediment in bottom of bottle.)
Aroma: Red berry and sloe berry fruit with cracked black pepper and faint grilled almond.
Taste: Brawny cracked black pepper spice and tart sloe berry fruit with faint lavender. Relatively dry compared to some other sloe gins.
Aftertaste: Raspberry, sloe berries, cracked black pepper and faint lavender.
Overall: Some will be attracted by this sloe gin’s unfiltered hazy appearance while others will find it off-putting. The palate is drier, more tart, than many other sloe gins – perhaps a tad to dry and peppery for some. We liked the pronounced sloe berry fruit flavours and subtle lavender notes.

Review and Tasting


Sampled on 22/08/2017

Appearance:

(sample bottle vintage C 2017, bottle No. 103/999) Hazy, deep crimson red.

Aroma:

Pungent, cooked sloe berries, sloe berry jam with pronounced menthol and peppery spice.

Taste:

Somewhat reminiscent of a cough sweet (Cherry Tunes) with strong sloe berry jam flavours accompanied by clove, cardamom and black pepper spice.

Aftertaste:

Lingering berry and spice.

Overall:

“Menthol medicated to help you breath more easily.” It’s not but with its pronounced spice, this Sloe Gin is reminiscent of cough sweets.
