Bottle, 2009 vintage. An amber colored cider, flat and oily. Soft and rounded on the nose, with some alcohol hints. Lots of apples though. A touch of caramel too. A tasteful one, with lots of apples and sweetness, and some orchard. Dry on the palate even though it’s quite sweet. Really lasting finish with apples and sweetness. Maybe a bit too sweetish and low on alcohol, but it’s still a damn tasteful drink. 120623

The aroma is very sweet, overripe apples, concentrated brown sugar, caramel. The appearance is a deep brown, flat, no head. The flavor is again sweet, apples, overly ripe apple peels in particular, brown sugar, caramel. The finish is the same. Medium to medium thick in body. Not bad at all. Syrupy. Not as interesting as I thought it would be.

SirADNielsen (8949) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 1, 2012
Bottle @ Brandon’s house. A hazy, copper orange appearance with little to no head. Toasty, caramel, light apple, a touch vinous aroma. Somewhat syrupy, buttery, caramel apple, light toffee flavor. Interesting to try.

Pour is clear reddish with no head, and no carbonation. Aroma brings notes of green apple, caramel, toffee, some sweet sugary notes. Taste is a mix of caramel apple notes, hints of tart apples as well, hints of sweet caramel, finishes with a hint of some slight spice. Fairly nice, sweet for sure.

2006. Bottle. Gift from Sarah. Thank you! I feel bad that this one struggled. The wax was crumbly and when I went to twist off the cork, it snapped of at the neck. The remaining cork was dusty and bone dry and had a weird residue on the bottom. Aromas immediately revealed significant oxidation. The flavors less so, but still a bit mangled. This does have some incredibly fresh sweet cider flavors. The alcohols and by-products are a bit feral and earthy, but the base cider flavor is fantastic.
