Chocolate-Cherry Apple Hard Cider

Category: Specialty Cider

Date Tasted:
Country: USA
Alcohol: 6.5%
Dusty steely pink color. Confected aromas and flavors of bit of honey candy, sesame halva bar, reese’s peanut butter cups, and apple sauce and butter with a round, crisp, spritzy, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a graceful, appealing, medium finish evoking notes of dried montmorency cherries, nutella on toast, and kiwi and melon finish. A daring flavor combination to seek out.

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.
