Traditionally brewed with wild yeasts, this had significant sediment in the bottle.
The aroma is fruity, but with a distinct undertone of oak, and the flavour reflects this. A subtle, but dry, apple flavour gives way to a strong aftertaste of aged oak, with quite heavy tannin.
Robust, and a little challenging, this is a strong, very dry cider, which is enjoyable, but probably not something you could have too much of; one bottle at a sitting is definitely sufficient.
