Pale golden amber color. Aromas of caramel drenched cherries, whiskey barrel, toasted brioche, green apple, and banana bread with an prickly, dry light-to-medium body and a warming, refreshing, medium-length chocolate covered toffee, grilled kumquat, and grill marks finish. A toasty, bourbon barrel influenced cider with zingy acidity and plenty of charm.

Specialty ciders include all ciders that do not fit neatly into other categories. These ciders may be barrel-aged, dry-hopped, spiced, made with single or heirloom apple varietals, fermented with an exotic or wild yeast strain, or any combination of these techniques. Ciders in this category have a diverse set of flavors, aromas and alcohol content. Most specialty ciders have seasonal or limited availability, but are becoming more readily available year-round as the category grows in popularity.
