#adventageddon Day Sixteen – 4/6
This was nice! I was worried the caramel/toffee wouldn’t come through but that flavouring was actually pretty strong, so the sips were like a sweet and slightly acidified apple note backed by a sweet caramelesque undertone that creeped into a nice, silky and lingering taste in the finish that almost left a sticky residue on the bed of my tongue. Not quite a super rich and high quality “toffee” (in my head a toffee is dense and has a deeper sweetness) since the caramel landed on the palate a little high/sharp and more like the thinner and more butterscotch-y caramel syrup you might have on a sundae. It still works with the blend though overall, but since this is an acidified apple it’s a little tart by the end of the cup and it would feel more balanced either with a deeper caramel note or a less acidified apple/rosehip/hippy combo.
Keep your steep shorter though, and I think you’ll be rewarded with a nice caramel apple!
