Advent 2017 – Day 23

23 Dec

Today’s drinks are:

Lamb & Watt Cucumber Tonic Water

This smells so cucumbery and effervescent when opened. As thought cucumber slices were in sparkling water – nothing else can be smelt.

When tasted it’s sweeter than expected but the predominant taste is cucumber but with a slight bitterness following on.

With gin it’s not a very pleasing blend. The cucumber, sweetness and gin clashes rather than combines. This tonic is definitely better by itself.

Perez Cruz Cabernet Syrah blend (here is a similar one with added Cot)

This smells peppery and fruity with a sharp, dry, twist.

When tasted it’s very drying with lots of tannin but also full of fruit and warmth
