COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cider with a little devil in it, but the dog doesnít bite. The sound of the rain and the distant midnight train brings Georgia to mind. An elegant, spicy blend of Colfax Classic apple-wine superbly aged inBourbon American whiskey barrels. The final blend is finished with Georgia peach-juice, a hint of mint and a kiss of Tupelo honey aged in Bourbon barrels. Full whiskey notes right up front, layered,very smooth, toasted oak tannins and vanilla.Velvety peach and a hint of mint julep. Blended straight from whiskey barrels.Give a solid bottoms-up tilt and swirlto disperse sediment evenly to best enjoy whiskey aromas and unique bouquet. Best enjoyed at cellar temperature, 50/55F.With or without 1 or 2 ice cubes. Age-worthy.

A light bourbon aroma. Light carbonation and a big sugary sweetness on the tongue. Really big applesauce feel and taste. With a decent dash of cinnamon. Really changes as it warms. Better than most ciders Iíve had.

12 ounce bottle, not sure how old this bottle is but I know Iíve had it a little while. Served in a Sam Adams Boston Lager glass, the cider pours a hazy gold color with about a half inch white head that fizzled away quickly. Aroma is nice and sweet, the cider smells like honey, apples, wood, vanilla, and bourbon. Taste is similar to the aroma, but thereís the addition of some peaches and mint. Mouthfeel/body is medium, itís coating and has low/moderate carbonation. I thought this was good, but then I like bourbon, honey and peaches so Iím a bit biased. Itís less appley than most ciders Iíve had, really does lean more towards the honey/bourbon sweetness. Iíd love to try this again. $3.99 a single bottle.

Lots of bourbon in this guy, in the nose and the taste. Which isnít my favorite, which Iíll be honest about. I definitely get the mint and apple but the peach is tough to find. If youíre a bourbon person, go for it.

bottle. deep golden with minimal head. thereís an odd mix of flavors here. it strikes me a kind of a leathery apple thing going on. the mint and bourbon arenít the best pairing. i donít really catch any peach either. definitely in the category of more interesting than good.
