  • Something special about this one. It's a great introduction to sloe gin, especially a good one like Plymouth. Wonderful flavor. Also, this is fairly low-sugar. It's a great *I'll have two in a row* drink. — ★★★★★
  • Unexceptional (with the caveat that I had to sub cheap sloe gin). — ★★★

Comments

GREAT introduction to sloe gin, which is was new to me. Using a good-quality sloe gin makes the drink, so I don't think you can replace the Plymouth Sloe Gin. It's easygoing but still very delicious, without being overly sweet or citrus-heavy. Doesn't taste like a lot of other drinks. Oh, and I used a Herbsaint rinse instead of authentic absinthe, but it worked great.
