Cider Crate Tasting Notes:

Smell: Medium aroma. Sweet whisky notes with aromas of apple, cinnamon, cardamom, caramel and butter.
Initial Taste: No bite. Smooth to consume with a honey crisp-like apple taste and an artificial whisky flavour.
After Taste: Moves to a more apple finish with spices becoming pronounced – especially cinnamon. An almost sweet tea finish with some bitterness from the whiskey elements lingering.
On ice: A little less carbonation and bourbon flavour.  Shorter aftertaste and intensity.

Additional Notes:  Growers Spiced Bourbon has sweet and spicy flavours that brings some warmth to the drink.  The whisky/bourbon flavour makes it a unique, but not authentic spirit-inspired drink – as a true barrel-aged cider would.  May work well in cocktails. Has a mixture of artificial and natural flavours.
