4.5/5 stars Difford's Guide: "Appearance: Clear, pale-mid golden amber with burnished copper highlights. Aroma: Wonderfully barrel-fresh cider untainted by too much oak with baked apple and pear drops with walnut, raisin and vanilla. Taste: cider, baked apple pie, poached pear, hot white pepper, ginger and cinnamon spice with delicate buttery oak and plump sultanas, biscotti and vanilla. Aftertaste: Apple-cider, baked apple and pear with ginger, cinnamon, cracked black pepper spice and spicy banana cake. A young, fresh-styled calvados with relatively light oak so perfectly suited to use in cocktails."
