When the leaves fall, there’s a chill in the air and the evening greedily takes hours from daylight, we stand strong and embrace the wintertime. It’s a time of rich foods, roaring fires and our favorite sweaters. Drinks change from refreshing to intense and satisfying. The Mitten is a Winter cider, a blend of last seasons best, aged in bourbon barrels, with the new season’s fresh pressed apple juice. Straight cider, aged for 3 seasons, finds notes of vanilla, caramel and charred American oak, balanced with the best of the orchard, over-ripe apples and their sweet, tart, earthy juice. Many barrels are filled, but only a small portion, the very smoothest, will find their way into The Mitten. We love wintertime, especially when we have The Mitten to keep us warm and happy through the long, cold night.

Perhaps I’m just not qualified for this sort of thing. To me it smells like apples and phenols with a touch of tartness. No perceivable bourbon, vanillin or whatever. Taste is apples and a bit of tartness and spicy with some booze.

This is perfection. Pure perfection. The bourbon is front-facing but combined with the cider taste creates a caramel and vanilla blend of a complex palate! Takes the edge off the cider but still a clear cider. Perfect. Had at Morton Arboretum craft beer fest and now again in a bottle. Same outcome. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
