4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
375 ml bottle to snifter (shared with the group; BIG thanks DuffMan). 2005 vintage, 12% abv. Looks great; a still deeper honey orange with nice body with legs that stick. Smells good; semi-sweet with awesome notes of concentrated cider. Fuller-bodied (as expected for the style). Awesome stuff! I’m worried I started off with the highest rated one because I might be chasing the dragon from now on.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Clear, deep golden with a fine pistachio sheen. Intense, but delicate apple/appleblossom and other blossoms aromas, nectarine, lunaria. Sweet apples, with an unimitable perfume. Tarte Tatin, muscat grapes, and precious liqueur. Very slick, oily-viscous, voluptuous. Complex beyond imagination, superb, a work of art.

Bottle @ 10K + OT. Huge thanks to Steve for the bottle of this. Caramel colored pour with great legs. Strawberry jam, caramel, blue cheese, cinnamon, and apple pie on the nose. Wowe. Vanilla, honey, and a touch of maple. Crazy flavors, as well. Obviously quite sweet. Tons of strawberry jam, cinnamon apples, apple pie, and vanilla. Slight maple and blue cheese. Mild acidity to the finish. Jesus juice.
