Tasting Notes

"An intense aroma of bright, youthful apples with just a touch of cinnamon and dried chili peppers. It is moderately sweet on your palate and has a soft, gentle body. Lots of apple cider notes and hints of woody spices and a dollop of caramel. The Calvados has just the right amount of tang to balance the sweet fruit which gives it a liveliness. "
