COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We were so pleased with the 2009 Vintage that we had the insanity to do it all again! As before, barrels were difficult to come by, but Julian took good care of us in the end. The two barrels used for the 2010 Vintage started life as red wine barrels. They were then en-route to a Calvados maker when they were intercepted (the story gets a bit fuzzy, and we know better than to ask questions we don’t want to know that answer to). The barrels were even branded with a Calvados marking but never actually saw any. Instead, they were used for several generations of Somerset Cider Brandy. They were emptied literally hours before we filled them. As we prepped the barrels for filling, the aromas of apple, spice, fire, and oak were very intense. We matured this vintage slightly longer than 2009, then blended, krausened, and bottled it much as before. We are very much looking forward to enjoying it by a warm fire again this winter.

Opaque dark brown beer. Ghost of a tan head. Light dry palate. Smooth with a touch of fine carbonation. Nice fresh tasting dark malt with well integrated dark chocolate and mild coffee. The apple brandy is also well integrated and not overwhelming. The brandy spice is more obvious than the subtle apple. Touch of bubblegum ester. Finishes dry. Nicely joined up.
