11 years in the past we reviewed a contemporary new launch from Caorunn Gun, infused with such unique botanicals as rowan berry, lavatory myrtle, and Coul blush apple. (See the hyperlink above for the total record.) Now Caorunn is out with a “Highland energy” version, almost 25 proof increased in energy than the unique. (Botanicals listed below are the identical, solely the abv has modified.)
It’s a surprisingly fruit-heavy gin, dropping candy orange and grapefruit notes on the nostril first, adopted by a mild hit of juniper. (Primarily it’s bought the identical notes as normal energy Caorunn, however backwards.) Duskily earthy because it develops in glass, the palate is knowledgeable first by mandarin orange notes, then greener parts of thyme, sage, and rosemary evolving. Fairly peppery on the end; right here I discover the gin departing greater than anticipated from the unique expression, with extra chew and fewer vanilla sweetness than within the authentic. Water tempers the warmth properly, permitting a few of that sugar to be coaxed out — although you’ll must work at it.
