This is 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 Navy Strength
Martini 8/10 (for us this is an extremely high score) G&T 7/10
We are big fans of Plymouth gin so were keen to try the navy strength.
The G and T is nice and clean - it packs an extra punch with being 57% but tastes much the same as the standard Plymouth gin.
For the martini we paired it with Noilly Pratt and is very clean and smooth and this is where can score over the standard gin as the flavour of the gin really comes through. Having said that I do find that it can be a little over powering but it is my husband's favourite martini by far.
This is a great gin and a good addition to any collection.
This Gin is like loopy juice for me and I LOVE IT!! because you are getting Navy Strength 57% it means you dont need as much as you normally pour.. its lovely and if you like your Gin to be Gin and not some funny taste the this is the one for you
This stuff is amazing! Gin pure and simple with a kick without being too harsh. I drank this with fevertree Mediterranean tonic and lots of ice. It was amazing. Great value too. I got this for £29 on here. Well worth it. If you like gin that tastes like gin then try this.
