Developed in partnership between Kingfisher and the folk at Aspall cider, Peacock Mango & Lime is designed to balance the “soft sweetness of mango” with “zesty lime to provide a burst of tropical refreshment.”
Review and Tasting
Sampled on 20/02/2019
(sample bottle best before Feb/20) Clear, pale golden with plentiful lively rising bubbles from carbonation producing a ring of foam and even light lacing.
Mango and lime are evident on the nose but delicately so and these integrate well with cider apple notes.
Light-bodied, clean and medium-dry. As with the nose, mango and lime flavours are evident but not dominant with mango adding subtle stone fruitiness while lime contributes a zesty hop-like bite.
Pleasant mango and lime cordial-like flavours linger on the dry finish.
Cider aficionados may instinctively dislike such flavoured offerings, but as flavoured ciders go, this one is very good, easy drinking and undeniably refreshing.
