Review: Vermont Cider Ingrained

Share

Vermont Cider Co. is the producer of, well, most of the cider you’re likely to find: Woodchuck, Gumption, Magner’s, Blackthorn… they’re all out of Vermont.

Vermont Cider also produces occasional bottlings under its own label, including this special edition: Ingrained. The name is a play on words, because the cider is aged in WhistlePig rye whiskey barrels before bottling.

A semi-dry cider, it’s got a punchy apple core that evokes notes of sweet-and-tart cinnamon-dusted applesauce, Butterfinger candy, and a little vanilla in the mix. It’s on this lattermost note that the barrel influence makes itself known, that vanilla ceding the way to hints of cocoa, graham crackers, and burnt toffee. Filling and well-rounded, it’s a cider with an impressive depth of flavor and a beautiful balance from start to finish.

Highly recommended.
