Single varietal from the Northern Spy apple; comes in a 375 ml long-neck, draw-cork bottle. Deep, rich, reddish-brown colour, with a strong, sherry-like aroma, tinged with ripe cherry. Smooth, syrupy, with a sherry-like mouth feel, becoming tart and slightly bitter with rich tannins, before developing an intense pomace flavour. Tones of chocolate and cherry are hinted. A bit too sweet for my palate, but interesting, complex flavours, nicely-balanced by the oak, make this worth trying.

Clear brown colored pour. Somewhat boozy aroma with a hint of sugar. Great sweet taste with caramel, brown sugar, wood, and candy apple flavors standing out.

Amazing! This ice cider is a single varietal (made from Northern Spy apples) aged in French oak barrels. Sold in 187ml and 375ml bottles. Full flavored, with notes of caramel, brown sugar, honey, oak, vanilla, baked apples, and mild spice. Long warming finish. Definitely very sweet, but a couple ounces with dessert is tasty.
