COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Conditioned in our Utopian barrels for up to 6 months. Hints of vanilla and coconut from the oak, blend with the apple and honey. A deep rich apple with the hints of bourbon and a smooth honey finish. Clearly something of special worth.

still, sweet, stack, aged in a bourbon barrel (Buffalo Trace for 18 months with this sample), so its very untraditional. the aroma has a strong corn syrup and burnt, sweaty, buttered popcorn character with strong oak / vanillin and hot alcohols. the flavor is more clean, with a rich and sweet honey expression but little bourbon - instead its more tannic oak and buttered vanilla. the apples are expressed well enough; muted but noticeable and distinct from the honey. however the diacetyl / theater popcorn butter and spicy ethanol and other higher alcohols make it really difficult to enjoy. plug my nose and I can tolerate it.

Honey aroma. Clear pale yellow, frothy. Honey flavor, semi-sweet, no nuance. Thin body. Surprising lack of complexity for a cyser. The label says there is a greater proportion of cider, but the honey dominated everything. Apples arent detected, but may serve as a moderating agent to keep it from being cloying. Enjoyable but ordinary.
