COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A flavoursome cider, made potent in the wood! Matured in ex Glenglassaugh casks for six months to nurture the natural characteristics of the cider, this rarefied, medium dry cider develops, as you might anticipate, into a full bodied Scottish Classic.

Not so much aroma.my first cider to rate! Pale yellow mildly carbonated. In taste sour apples and taste of basement. Whisky barrel taste not really there! Still refreshing!

Bottle from the producer’s own stand at the Good Food Show at Birmingham NEC. Golden toffee colour. Taste of toffee apple with the emphasis on the very sweet toffee. Some woody honeyed whisky notes in the background but the toffee is dominant, and as a result it’s far too sweet. Not for me, but nice to have a cider that’s a bit different.

Benzai (8972) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - NOV 19, 2014
Bottle shared @ Van Moll Brewpub. Hazy pale golden color, virtually no head. Smell and taste sweetness, sweet overripe apple, pear, sugary. I don’t get the whisky cask. At least, I think I get a hint of hit but if it hadn’t been in the name I wouldn’t have guessed it.

Cask stillage at Barnton Cricket Club Beer Festival 2014. Cider with whisky flavour, far too sweet, not a good experiment

sebletitje (6895) - Enghien, BELGIUM - OCT 23, 2014
Bottle sample @ Fiera della Birra, Cesena ’14. Dorée paille, sans col. Que dire, pomme et pomme sur un superbe profil de whisky et pointe de boisé-cask. Ressent le petit côté suret de la pomme qui est accompagné par un excellent whisky qui confère une pointe de tourbe. Cette dernière est modérée et balance bien le profil des pommes.

jookos (2607) - FINLAND - SEP 18, 2014
Cask@gallows bird real ale festival 2014. Yellow coloured. Sweet apple, overly so. Icky, hard to finish. Dissapointing.

MichaelAwesome (4574) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - SEP 16, 2014
Bottle shared with McTapps. Might have a touch of whiskey in it but it does nothing special about that. Thin and bit watery with some apples and sugar. Average.

McTapps (4574) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - SEP 15, 2014
Bottle from Scotia Spirit in Cologne. The cider pours out in a clear golden colour with medium to smooth body. Aroma of fresh apples, apple juice and leaves. Taste of sweet apples, natural apple juice, caramel, vanilla and leaves. When you really concentrate, you M A Y taste some fair hints of whisky but it may also be pure goodwill. Expected it better.
