This Sidra's profile is highly aromatic, fruity, and wild. The flavours showcase tropical fruits, a winey acidity, and a bit of spice. We also find citrus fruits and chocolate tones which add a fantastic complexity. Like most Sidra varietals, the aftertaste is long and there is a wonderful mouthfeel with an elegance that mirrors a beautiful rum.

*Please note, preorder coffees are excluded from discounts.
