5.0 out of 5 starsMakes a great, traditional tasting G&T
1 January 2018
A good old fashioned tasting gin, which makes an outstanding gin and tonic. I bought this when on offer on Amazon, and it was excellent value, and I would say superior to others at a similar price. I would recommend this for a traditional tasting G&T.
This one of several reviews I will be doing of various gins.
I have something of a gin habit and rather geekily score gins for both g&t and martini on a spreadsheet (I mix 1:5 with a twist of lemon, well I don't mix it myself that's what husbands are for ) . I score out of ten and I give my go to gin (Bombay London) a 5 out of 10 to act as a baseline to judge against. We score more than once so I get an idea of how they taste over different times and occasions. Please remember these scores are personal and what I like you might not.
So on to Plymouth:
G&T 7/10 Martini 7/10
This is a relatively inexpensive gin and as such now that we have tried it we plan to ensure that there is always a bottle in the cupboard. The G and T is excellent and the martini, paired with Noilly Pratt, is just as good as our other favourites which are made from much more expensive gins. It is very smooth without the harsh edge that you get with a lot of gins. Definitely one to try.
Simply outstanding. Favourite for over two decades. Juniper forward but not as rough as some London Dry Gins... Smooth and classy. Works well in Martini, Negroni and other cocktails....I love it in Martinez instead of any Old Tom....
