375 ml. bottle shared by Kraddel during the (Ice) Cider/Perry tasting @ Barely Legal Tasting Room. Thank you! 2007 Vintage. Last one ever made apparently. Bottle has been open for quite some time & resulting in significant evolution, I have been told by Kraddel. Darkest appearance for an ice cider yet. Reddish, very dark brown amber. Nose is distinctly cherry, apple liqueur, cherry pits & oxidation; Taste is mix of caramelized apples & cherry, warming, syrupy, sweet spices, cinnamon, toffee. Lightly warming. Different for sure, not as good as the others but awesome all the same.

tom10101 (2938) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 31, 2014
Bottle (375 ml). Thanks to Thomas for this one! Dark amber with ruby reflects, no head and no lacing. Aroma is very fruit forward with strong berries presence (mostly rapsberries, even if there’s none in there), apple jelly, caramel and acidic notes. Taste is very sweet, but it’s well balance by the sharp acidity... there’s berries in there too, apple jelly, brown sugar and oak notes. Medium body. Still. Liquorous mouthfeel. Lingering sweet and fruity finish. Quite different from the Ice Ciders we have in Québec. Not the most complex, but super tasty and fun to try. I loved it!

mcberko (6708) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 4, 2014
375mL bottle, pours a clear mahogany / maroon with just a few bubbles. Nose is deeply complex and rich, with loads of caramelized apples, a little treacle toffee, and some alcohol. Flavour is pretty great, with loads of caramelized sugar, treacle toffee, sweet apples, and a hefty alcoholic burn. Very thick and syrupy mouthfeel, with a bit of a berry-like cloying sweetness on the finish. Wonderful stuff.
