The Edinburgh Castle is a great place to spend the end of the weekend and now even better that there’s mulled wine on offer.This brew was just the right level of spicy and sweet and when served in a warm and cosy pub it’s hard to go wrong. It was tasty enough to want to drain the glass in a few gulps, however the price tag held me back from doing just that, and after all this was definitely a drink to sip and appreciate.

I confirmed with the bar staff that it did come with a splash of brandy which probably explains the price and I’d say also helped give it that rich spiciness. All in all, great flavour to savour, especially when there’s smooth jazz playing in the background.

Would I order a second? If it hadn’t been so long after pay day, yes.

Would I return to the venue just for it? Yes.

Will I be back next year? Of course.
