In this episode, we taste another gin, this time from Marks and Spencers.
The gin is a seasonal gin as it’s name – Christmas Dry Gin – suggests.
Having a sniff of the gin neat, the gin smells of cinnamon to John M, although John L couldn’t get the cinnamon.
In the mouth, the alcohol seemed to mask any of the finer points of the gin’s taste.
With the tonic added the taste of the gin seemed a lot sweeter, fruitier, softer and the burn had disappeared, The tonic has allowed the citrus flavours to develop.
