Smokey and earthy. This is the Laphroaig of the cider world. You might like it, you might not - I personally love it and have only given it 4 rather than 5 because of a slight watery taste - but it doesn’t detract too much. This cider is deep golden yellow brown in colour and very light in carbonation. It really lingers and has a real punch. Goes lovely with a strong cheddar. It has a very complex taste, is full bodied and one of a kind. There is a draught version of this cider, which I don’t believe is as strong - but I’ve only had it in The Cardinal’s Hat in Worcester, UK. I love this cider as a treat - but it’s not a session cider by any means. I feel bad not giving it 5/5, but I just reserve the full 5 stars for the ones I find outstanding. 4 stars is by now means to be shirked at. Bought this in the Co-op along with the medium version.

Golden colour, clear with mid range fizz. Earthy aroma. Smokey farmyard taste. A little watery in taste.

Rich, golden colour, with an aroma combining resin and smoke. Tangy fruit flavour, with a little smoke, and peaty funk in the finish, reminiscent of a West Coast Scotch Malt Whisky. Depth and character which will appeal to a whisky connoisseur. Drinkable, and surprisingly refreshing.
