COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Characteristics
- Unparelled richness
- Inimitable complexity... made from a blend of many apple varieties, including rare heritage apples
- Warm caramel and baked apple flavour
- Made in limited quantities... each bottle is uniquely numbered and hand-signed
- A naturally made ice cider... without added sugar or alcohol

Serving Suggestions
Due to its richness and concentration of flavours, we recommend serving Signature on its own, as a digestif. It also pairs exceptionally well with blue-veined or aged cheese and orchard fruit or nut-based desserts.

375 ml 11% alc./vol

Very nice a light golden color. good alcohol legs. The smell is intense! wow. sweet, loads of baked apples, cinnamon, brown sugar. Taste is just as aweome! the thickness is very well balanced. There’s some moldy rotten raisin in this but there is some other off-flavor. still an exceptional cider but not great for the price given.

czar (5843) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 8, 2014
pours syrupy medium dark golden, sticky legs. juicy caramelized apples, browned apple sauce - red apples and demerara, red grapes, hint of tartness, warm spices, woodsy if not woody notes, alcohol well hidden. flat carbonation, medium to full body - syrupy yet not necessarily cloying, sweet, gently tart and woodsy finish. very solid ice cider.

D’un beau doré lumineux, des traces visqueuses glissent sur le verre. Des odeurs de pommes mûres, de fleurs de pommier et de belle senteurs boisées. Une belle et bonne pomme en bouche, ayant des saveurs poivrées et rustiques. C’est comme un dessert. C’est agréablement fruité et un alcool imposant tout en étant timide se fait sentir en bouche. Il y a des élans acidulés. C’est collant et ça glisse bien dans le gosier. (1307-241014)

375 ml. bottle shared by Kraddel during the (Ice) Cider/Perry tasting @ Barely Legal Tasting Room. Thank you! Small sample. Golden. Sweet straightforward apple, sweet & sugary. Taste is warming apple syrup, caramel, sugar, huge apple, light spices. Thick body. About as straight-forward as Ice Cider can get. Amazing all the same, I really, really like Ice Cider. I can see why this ranks so high, very straightforward, very approachable.

Bottle (375 ml). 2005 vintage. From Simon, thanks! Dark caramel/amber color. Aroma is wonderfully complex with brown sugar, apples (intense), peaches/apricots, caramel and light spices. Taste is moderately sweet with a ton of apples afain, brown sugar, peaches/apricots, acidic notes and a nice alcohol warming. Medium to full body. Sirupy mouthfeel. Thick. This one aged gracefully. Really complex and well balanced. Superb sipper.
