The Blacker The Berry…The Sweeter

The Juice Reserved for the darkest of hearts, McKenzie’s Black Cherry is an inspiration to hard cider – rich amber, full body with a refreshingly sweet cherry finish.

Our Review:
The first thing you will notice about this is the very strong cherry smell when you open it. It kind of reminded me of Robitussin cherry smell, but that is where the similarity ends. It is like a liquid jolly rancher but with a kick. These will get away from you if you’re not careful they are so delicious you forget there is alcohol with them. I like that it doesn’t have a weird after taste because of the sweet flavor. There are some ciders that are great going down but after that it gives this weird taste in the the back of your throat, and if you happen to burp its bad news. That doesn’t happen with this one. The cider reminds me of the scene from the Gene Wilder Willy Wonka movie, candy is dandy but liquor is quicker I suspect this is what he might have been concocting.

This is best served ice cold, I wouldn’t recommend room temperature or warm. If you are in the sharing mood, I can guarantee if you bring this to any summer cookouts you will be one of the most popular people there as everyone will love it. If you don’t feel like sharing, you’ll still feel like a winner while drinking this. I happen to enjoy it with some snickers while playing video games, but it’s also delicious with some spicy steak or just some snacking. In other words, it could go with anything! The price isn’t too bad either, so you’ll be thinking what a rich taste without having to drink to remove the guilt of how much you spent on it.
