I found this cider to be exception in every way. It had tremendous balance, lovely flavors, and a long finish. I put this at the top of my domestic cider list. I was sad when the bottle was empty. Luckily for me I will be carrying the cider in my store very soon. The only cider that I have enjoyed more is the stuff from Eric Bordelet.
