Cadenhead's Old Raj Dry Gin Blue Label NV / 750 ml.

Item#: 70553

WE8888 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 4/1/2012
The 55% abv blue label is one of the strongest and most expensive gins on the market. Look for the trademark faint yellowish-saffron tinge and herbal scent, with assertive pine and anise flavors and a tart lemony touch. Serve this overproof gin tamed with ice and lots of tonic.

The first nosing pass offers a mildly fruity/spicy scent that doesn’t speak of the elevated alcohol. Second and third sniffings see the development of biscuity, rich aromas of flavorers, orris root and angelica. The palate entry is sweet and fruity, featuring the juniper berries. The finish brings the citrus more into play as the sweetness of the entry and midpalate give way to a delightful tartness.

This is the lower-proof version of the classic Old Raj. Lovely, complex gin bouquet offers aromas of coriander, juniper, anise, orris root, ground pepper, lemon peel, lead pencil, earth and tree bark. Palate entry is creamy, fruity, spicy and minty; midpalate offers layers of botanical complexity over the core juniper taste. finishes with a wonderful rush of mint and baking spice. Fabulous.

At 46% alcohol by volume, the saffron-spiked red label version is strong (but not as strong as the overproof blue label version). This is an intriguing, old style of gin, with a faintly yellowish tinge and light, earthy flavors that wind into a complex, spicy finish marked by hints of black pepper, anise and cassia bark. Best when served very cold.
