Cider is matured in Whisky Casks from Glen Moray Distillery. Just enough time passes for the cider to absorb the distinctive tones of the oak and Highland single malt.

Towey1989 (1181) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2016
Draught at The Roebuck, Leek (Titanic) A clear straw colour with no head. Aroma of sweet apple, pear and a little toffee. Taste is sweet of apple, pear, slight whisky, a little oak and subtle toffee. Medium bodied and flat carbonation. A sweetish, slight toffee, apple finish. You can really taste the whisky when you take the time to savour it, nice oak and toffee flavours. Not too alcoholic. Highly recommended.

Theydon_Bois (15008) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2015
Keg at the Bootlegger, High Wycombe, 27/12/15. Clear light golden with a decent off white covering that retains well for a cider. Nose is tangy apple, straw, light smoke, subtle whisky. Taste comprises apple orchard, light sugar, straw, whisky vibes. Medium bodied, light spritzy carbonation, semi drying close. Decent cider, the whisky dumbs down the sweetness. Decent.

wolfcarnival (188) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - DEC 28, 2015
bottle, xmas pressie from graeme. had it while watching jurassic world last night. frigid painfully single thirtysomething chick battles oppression from grizzled white cishet army men and manmade patriarchylizards all while wearing highheels and not wanting to have kids, greatest feminist fable of all time. anywayz this pours hazy yellow with barely any head. looks sticky sweet. smells a lot like champagne. tastes of spiced apples, pears, oaky whisky hints. its really sugary but i liked it quite a lot

Muggus69 (1767) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - NOV 5, 2015
330mL bottle from Slowbeer. BB NOV 16 Clear pale gold in colour. Aromas of long-life apple juice, faint notes of toast, bread, pale caramel & apricots. Quite sweet upfront, full body, light carbonation, dries out with a touch of tannin towards finish. Good whack of sweet pale caramel/golden syrup upfront, get some yeasty (or whisky?!) notes of autolysisy bread crust/brioche thingy going on, accompanied by ripe apple flesh finishing up with a touch of wood & apricot, lingering dryness. Good flavours, oak not prominent but adds to complexity.
