Wine Enthusiast 96 points - Ultimate Spirits Challenge 2012 Chairman's Trophy, Great Value. This benchmark cocktail gin uniformly garners praise for its generous and soft palate, remarkably crisp and clean tang and subtle smoothness. Notes of coriander and cardamom merge brightly with citrus in this remarkable gin.
The full bodied, spicy aroma offers delicate notes of juniper berry oil, citrus, orris, coriander and caraway seed. Palate entry is mildly peppery, floral and fruity; at midpalate the flavor profile focuses more on oils and juniper. A unique and great gin. - Paul (8/1/2007) - 96-100: Classic/Highest Recommendation (Aug 2007)
Plymouth Original Strength is a unique, protected style of gin originating from the city of Plymouth, South West England. Since 1793 it has been distilled from a unique blend of 7 botanicals, soft Dartmoor water and pure grain alcohol at the historic Black Friars Distillery - the oldest working distillery in England.
Plymouth Gin has a great depth of flavour with deep earthy notes and a wonderfully fresh juniper and lemony bite. It has a slight sweetness with extraordinary concentration and complexity. No single botanical dominates the overall flavour. The finish is long and dry.
|Plymouth is ideal served with tonic over ice and a squeeze of lemon or lime. Alternatively savour its smooth taste in, amongst other wonderful cocktails, the Fraise Sauvage cocktail featured in the Detroit News newspaper - a more terrific variation of champagne with fresh strawberries!
