The second cider in our tasting was Pippins. I can see why we started with Flagship, comparitively Pippins has a sweeter taste and a little thicker consistency on the tongue. Pippins is as a cider with structure, it's a crisp aromatic dry sparkling cider with lovely fruity undertones.
We finished of the cider tasting with Rumrunner. I wasn't sure if I was going to like it simply because I couldn't reconcile cider being aged in rum barrels and what that flavour would be like. But, at least three customers told me that the Rumrunner is their absolute favourite. So I had to try it.
Tasting the Rumrunner last was well planned, as it was a little sweeter than the previous two ciders I had tasted. Once you've tasted the sweetest there is no going back to the others because your taste buds can't handle it.
For me I think the Rumrunner would be great as an aperitif. The flavours were bursting with the sweetness of brown sugar and spice to this semi-dry sparkling cider. I would describe it as 'Yummy!"
