The Jacket is a rare andamazing pleasure. An American cider masterpiece combining a blend of 4 unique apple-wines: fermented with Belgian Trappist ale yeast; Irish Stout yeast; wild fermentation heirloom cider-apple wine & Colfax Classic apple-wine: all aged in Tennessee Whiskey barrels. Finished with unfiltered Gravenstein apple-juice aged in the same casks. Crispin’s Limited Release Number 5 Blend.
The Jacket is a sippin’ cider best enjoyed in a rocks glass. A reflective cider with sublime balance even at 8.3% ABV. Substantive & complex without being overbearing. An early hint of whiskey, with delicate apple-brandy notes. Vanilla, light phenols, aged leather and a snappy tart conclusion.
Smells of malts, with a hint of grape. Taste is malts, traces of hops and a hint of woodiness with it. It is quite well balanced: the malts don't dominate, and the hops blend well....
Processed apple pulp with sugar and artificial sweetener. Pasteurised and kegged and served with artificial pressure.
