Comes in a 750ml bottle. Limited edition (I have bottle 45 of 1194), bottle-conditioned, from Dabinett and Michelin cider apples, by one of my favourite innovative cidermakers. Hazy amber, with a sherry cask aroma, and an alcohol edge. Smooth, dry, fruit flavour, with coniferous resin, vanilla, and light spice, with a soft alcohol burn in the finish. Not as complex as I expected, but very much a fine cider, in the manner of a "fino" sherry. This will not be to everyone's taste, but if dry is your thing, this is well-made and refined; it was a little too dry for my personal preference, but still enjoyable.
