Evolved yet refreshing. Dried apricot & vanilla.
Iscider Fatlagrad Barrique 2018 has a deep copper colour.
On the nose it opens with dried apricot, raisins and walnut. The passage in barrique gives it also toasty notes and a calvados character. And then there is cedar wood and a distinctive vanilla note.
The mouthfeel is surprisingly fresh which balances well the high residual sugar content and suggests it could age pretty well!
On the palate the notes of dried apricot, raisins and walnut are very much back.
The finish is long.

Brännland Cider started in 2010 with the dream of making great cider using apples grown in the cold climate of northern Sweden.
Brännland Cider produces artisanal ice cider on the Baltic seaboard of northern Sweden based on 100% apple juice from apples grown in both Northern and Southern Sweden.Link to here...
