So onto another Millwhites and this time it was the Scrumpy at only 6.5%. So supposedly less strong than most of their other ones, but then again a lot of proper ciders have such a rough estimation that it could be anything. If you believe the % given then it could end very messy!

So going from one Millwhites to another is fairly tough to tell the difference at times. This had the same rustic smell to the Whiskey Cask, which was definitely satisfying. As for the taste, it’s fairly rough, but at the same time not overpowering and does feel fairly fruity and has a good dry end with the slight hint of oak. It’s got a slightly sour and acidic bite that does excite the tastebuds and make you want more. It’s not my favourite Millwhites cider, but it is decent and if this is your type of cider you will appreciate it.

Would I buy this again?:
Overall Rating: 8.5/10
