0.375l (bottle#4012 from 2011) absolutely stunning looking and strangely corked-patented long bottle. Just love the design on this bottle. It pours a really cloudy dark brown-orange almost muddy looking body and there are some transparent bubbles that stays on the side of the glass. The aroma fills the room. It’s surprisingly berry-sweet this. Lot’s of fresh red summer berries. Wild-strawberries at an distance but close up it’s more apply-concentrated and almost a bit cellared. Really beefy like a meaty fat and salty stock. Quite interesting. Oh, my this was a lot of flavor! So so concentrated and sweet! Loads of sweet concentrated green and yellow apples with a gazed caramelized sweetness like I’ve never tasted before. Apple consentrat with a taste of autumn and juicy sweet blood oranges. I get pictures of myself climbing in the apple trees as a child as I’m drinking this. A really interesting genre, my first actually, and a cider totally packed with flavor flavor flavor! I’m popping the cork back on and will enjoy this over a longer period. 07.01.2013

magsinva (884) - Virginia, USA - JAN 13, 2013
Bottle from state line liquors - vintage 2006 - pours a hazy orange with a thin white head. Aroma reminds be of the baked apples at Cracker Barrel, so baked apple, brown sugar, calvados. Taste is sweet. The palate is syrupy, but not overly so. Overall, yum!
