Cider Crate Tasting Notes:
Smell: Medium aroma of caramel, cinnamon and semi-tart apple.
Initial Taste: Mild bite from acidity and carbonation. Strong, bold nutmeg flavour followed by semi-tart and warming apple notes – and some citrus aspects. Almost a bourbon-like vanilla.
After Taste: Becomes more cinnamon and apple pie like as the aftertaste goes on. Long lasting with a bit of a film/medicinal taste. Finished with some pastry and raisin elements.
On ice: No difference.
Additional Notes: Ernest’s Apple Strudel has a lot of elements: it starts bold and then goes through a bit of a flavour journey with differing tastes, finishing on a flaky, cinnamon ending. The more you consciously think of it, the closer it is to the Apple Strudel it’s named after. It would be a great alternative to a dessert as it captures the unique, flakiness flavours of a strudel.
