2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle @ Sea Cider. Clear pale yellow pour. The aroma is hot has a lot of fusels. It’s nearly peppery. Notes of vanilla and caramel. Very light apple. The booze is intense on the tongue as well. Mild sweetness of caramel, vanilla, and cooked fruit. Some peppery spice, herbs, and grain. Better with a splash (or two) of water.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Boozy aroma with tart apples. The flavour is the same. Would work as a nice aperitif if you wanted something with less alcohol than most. It’s like a watered down Calvados.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Corked bottle from Spinnakers Spirit Merchants, Victoria; 19% ABV
Yellow color, with beautiful legs. Light aroma of Calvados with a touch of anise. Full sweetness, the mouthfeel gains some balance by the strong alcohol presence, although this also gives a boozy note; some flavor of apple juice (no fruity freshness though), candies, cassonade, a hint of anise.
This is more similar to sweet Calvados than cider, but it’s a pleasant liquor.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, shared as a cesert pairing between 6 people. Nice light copper, long legs, no carbonation. Sweet brown sugar and apple open the palate, quickly overtaken by brandy-ish alcohol. Quite alcoholic, but smooth. Sweet and warming. Certainly more like a desert wine than a cider, but good for that very reason. I’ve not had any ice ciders yet, but I suspect that this leans toward that particular style.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
375 ml bottle courtesy Capflu, sampled April 9, 2008. Fiery orange amber colour. Light apple, sherry, alcohol, and spice aroma. Very sherry-like - but not in a good way - lightly sweet apple flavour quickly overtaken by a mountain of heavily alcoholic cheap sherry. Full bodied, soft but slick mouthfeel. I like cider, and I like sherry. This was like a combination of the 2 with disastrous results. Reading the high ratings a year after my sample, I wonder if my bottle had some oxidation issues.
