500ml bottle from Scrattings. As Ross on Wye Premium Somerset Redstreak Cider 8.0% Batch C58 18. Hazy golden colour with a white foam head that rapidly dissipates away. Aroma of peat, phenolic, salty, islay whisky. Taste is woody, apple, astringent, earthy, ashy, peaty, with some underlying fruity notes and soft drying tannins. Medium bodied, slightly spritzy carbonation, dry phenolic whisky finish. Interesting, lots of islay whisky notes from the barrel, nicely drinkable.
