Local Nectar is a fun product. A relatively small production run from a massive cidery. This cider is made from locally-grown apples and only sold in Vermont.
I’ve enjoyed many Woodchuck ciders over the last 20 years, and enjoyed this one a bit less than I’d hoped to. It is neither overly-sweet nor overly dry, has a decent light, crisp apple aroma, smooth mouthfeel, and no funky aftertaste.
If you like sweet ciders, the Amber or Raspberry will likely be a better fit. If you don’t live in Vermont (or close by), you might have to wait a while to try it.
If you can get to the Woodchuck tasting room, you’ll love it. I brought 6 bottles home to Seattle, and wish it could have been more!
