Rated this as 4 star just because I didn't really follow the recipe to the letter. I used brandy instead of Calvados, and swapped the Allspice berries for a combination of ground allspice and half a tablespoon of juniper berries. Also had to leave out the cinnamon sticks because I have a cinnamon hater in the household! However, the result is delicious.
