Dry to semi-dry. Smells of ripe acidic apples and oak. I definitely pick up the oak barrel influence, but it isn't overpowering in the least. I also pick up some vanilla and bourbon notes. Moderate length finish with some lingering acidity, tartness, and bitterness. Clean refreshing taste.
Overall a solid well-balanced and well-composed cider, but isn't one of my favorites. It is tending towards the bold & unique category that I like, but not quite there yet.
