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. 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.

Bouteille claire, avec bouchon de liège, de 375 ml (tube cylindrique) achetée au Mondial des Cidres de Glace du Québec 2008 (Rougemont, QC). Arôme: Odeur de pommes sucrées avec une pointe d’épices. Apparence: La couleur est dorée. Saveur: Goût de pommes et de cassonade avec une pointe d’érable. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est plein avec une texture sirupeuse. Faible effervescence en bouche. Légère présence de sirop d’érable légèrement brûlé en arrière goût. (Rating #2182)

grandgenie (259) - gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 28, 2011
bouteilles 1840 de 5000 produites en 2008. Acheté 37.50$ à la SAQ du casino et dégusté dans des verres de cidre mystique avec glandine. Apparence de couleur orangé cuivré laissant de grosses coulisses sur le verre. Arômes délicats de miel de fleur sauvage, de pomme cuites au four et de pelure de pomme. Goût exquis et fruité. le tout est en équilibre avec une longue finale laissant découvrir malgré le sucré, une amertume légère. Une belle réussite, bravo!

much darker than the normal iced cider, i was told they use double the amount of apples for this one. Its much moe intense, bigger notes of honey, and brown sugar. and so sweet, and also a touch sour, excellent!

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)

jercraigs (8073) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 6, 2008
2008-06-01. Third day at Mondial and going strong... well, going anyways! Starting off with a cider seemed like a good way to kick start the senses. Dark golden yellow body (3+). Surprisingly mild aroma, light musty over-ripe apples, sweet. (7+) Sweet apples up front in the flavour, light sugar, quick tart apples in the finish have occasional touches of musty skins, lingering tart apples in the finish and aftertaste. Smooth, medium bodied palate has a nice weight to it without being too heavy. Pretty nice. 2006 Vintage Bottle, Mondial, Montreal, 6T
