Just like you, but different
Peckham’s Blaze Fire 2018 – I don’t often write about Cider, mostly because they’re not beer 🙂 I’ve had some of their other ciders and I can assure you that they are properly copy shelf stuff, expertly and lovingly crafted with real quality. So it’s no surprise that I dashed to the store to get me one of these, i don’t think they’ll be around long.
a perfect accompaniment
This is a lovely presented 330ml bottle of Cider, the Blaze Fire 2018 is 12.0% ABV, and is around that 360 calories a serve, this bottle is 3.6 standard drink units worth.
Fire Cider from Peckham”s Cider and McLeod’s Brewery. Super limited stock.
So, What could possibly go wrong?
Well getting into it when you don’t got a knife 🙂 but I went and got a knife, and even then a challenge. I was expecting a cap, underneath though a cork. It was worth the effort.
That’s some lovely apple cider aroma.
It’s not as ‘bright’ as I expected it to pour, although it hasn’t changed colour from the bottle to the glass, it does look cloudier and darker. The aroma in the glass that lovely sweet and somewhat dusty thing that you get with good cider.
It also pours dead flat.
OMG it’s like a syrup. Like the best syrup I’ve ever had. It’s thick, viscous, sticky, intense, very intense, sweet, slightly smokey.
Brilliant. Each mouthful sup is an explosion and revelation, and after a few nips you feel you’re developing a dryness on the tongue. It’s not unwelcome.
I’ve got to tall you too that this is brilliant with the platter of the things MrsPhil cobbled up, Blue Cheese- brilliant, Feta & Spinach Hummus – brilliant , Olives – brilliant, it just ricochets off the food.
Proper Cider, a proper platter and proper good music. It’s been Friday!
The pdubyah-o-meter rates this as 10 of its things from the thing. I’ve had this for what seems and age, and it’s really been worth waiting to drink, the thickness, the apple syrupy sweetness, the mouthfeel, it really is outstanding.
