COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Woodchuck Draft Cider® Oak Aged is a perfect culmination of Premium French and Traditional American Oak, giving the cider great complexity and broad characteristics that neither style could produce on its own. Handcrafted using a centuries old technique, this cider has tremendous depth; offering a unique taste and special aroma not found in any other American hard cider. Starting with an attractive oak taste and finishing with a touch of vanilla, Woodchuck Oak Aged pairs effortlessly with holiday dishes.

brokensail (11600) - Orange County, California, USA - FEB 26, 2013
An almost orange color with a short lived bit of white foam. The nose is candy sweet with some hints of caramel and vanilla to go along with Smarties. Hints of oak, tart green apple, and some sugar. The flavor is sweet and sugary, too. Hints of caramel and vanilla, green apple, a light tartness, and some sugar/candy. Not bad, actually.

hopscotch (9556) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 1, 2008
Bottle… Clear amber cider with a small, fizzy, quickly dissipating head. Woodsy, apply nose - suggestions of sour mash and apple butter. Medium-bodied with fizzy carbonation. Sweet and woodsy with just a whisper of sour mash. Basically, a middle-of-the-road cider with fizz. Lengthy, sweet, mildly bourbony finish that dries out a touch in the end.

daknole (9466) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - DEC 14, 2008
Bottle from total wine. An oak aged cider? Seemed funny but it realy isnt bad at all. You get the normal apple cider that you would expect but some pleasant vanilla and bourbon flavors are present that really seem to work. Surprising for sure.

Drake (8993) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - NOV 2, 2009
12 ounce bottle from a local grocery store. Pours a clear amber with a head that makes cola look good. Aroma is apples with vanilla and faint toasted oak notes. Taste is apples, oak, vanilla. Faintly spicy. Medium bodied. One of their better products.
