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.

Muggus69 (1673) - 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.

Taste has some drying esters and tannins, more baked apples sweetness and caramel and vanilla notes. Light to medium bodied with no carbonation. Overall, nice

chinchill (3344) - South Carolina, USA - SEP 17, 2015
From a bottle. Very pale golden body with excellent clarity but virtually no head. Mild whisky barrel aromatics with a faint fruitiness, mostly Apple. Bolder and much fruitier flavor but too sweet. Suitable only as an aperitif.

dmac (4956) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - AUG 29, 2015
Bottle down at the beach house. Poured a super clear piss yellow with some large white bubbles. Aroma is like cheap champagne and a touch of sour apples. Flavor is light and refreshing with some apple crispness and a hint of wood. Body is good for a cider, thin with just a touch of carbonation.

PeatyPete (625) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 27, 2015
Color is light yellow as white wine. Aroma of fresh tart apples with some wood in the background. Taste is an explosion of sweetness. Sweetness is not bad but leaves little room for other flavors on my palette. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

colui72 (420) - HONG KONG - AUG 7, 2015
Pale golden, sweet aroma of green apple. Very sweet but not in a bad way, taste is in fact very delicate and the sweetness doesn’t leave that annoying sugary after taste. Booze is fantastically hidden. Delicious.

Sweet and soft aroma. Fruity and doughy. Very soft and smells like sweets. Really delicious. Bet it's really strong. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
