Cider Crate Tasting Notes:

Smell: Strong aroma. Very sweet and syrupy astringent apples. Some caramel notes. 
Initial Taste:
No bite. Smooth and sweet, pulpy and caramelized apples.  Some astringent notes but less than it smells.
After Taste: Long lingering, astringency migrates and grows at the back of the throat. Some film notes.  Retains caramelized elements, and actually grows in strength.
On ice: Lighter with 1/3rd less flavour overall.

Additional Notes:  A before dinner drink (Aperitif), the Fortified Cider by Domaine De Lavoie is thick, sweet and caramelized.  To help get you hungry, it cleanses the palate with an easy and smooth 19% shot/slow sipper.  Watch the sugar content with these high alcohol spirit-like ciders.
