I had this one poured out of the bottle. It has a nice copper color, which automatically set it apart from most ciders. It definitely had a nice smokey aroma with vanilla and cinnamon. The flavor is well balanced and complex. I never imagined that a cider aged in bourbon barrels would work so well. This is definitely one of my favorite ciders.

Pours still deep orange into a shaker. No head. Sweet caramel and bourbon aromas. Crisp apple upfront turning to vanilla and bourbon in the soft, lasting pie crust finish.

Pour on tap, dark orange pour with no head, aroma brought notes of apple, vanilla, oak, bourbon, nice earth and spice. Taste is a mix of fruit, apple, hints of oak, bourbon, and vanilla, finishing with some spice. Nicely done.

(bottle - 12 oz) Copper pour with a thin white head. Light apple aroma with a nice hint of the wood and bourbon from the aging. Definite bourbon sweetness at the front that turns into almost a maple syrup taste with the apples. Finishes dry and clean. A bit odd, but kind of nice.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
355 ml. Clear amber-copper with a lasting small ring of bubbles. Nose of apples in brown sugar, vanilla, oak and light whiskey. Flavor is more of the same goodness with a bit more crispness from the apple and maybe a faint hint of char in the long aftertaste. Light-medium body is smooth with low-average carbonation, and to the sweet side with the oak and whiskey providing just enough dryness in the finish. Very nice use of the barrel.

Pours a medium brown, with an aroma of apple and toffee, vanilla, and cinnamon. This is a pretty unique and interesting start for a cider, which tend to be pretty predictable at this point. Flavor leans moderately sweet, but it has some depth and complexity to it as well. There is bourbon, wood, some bitterness, a little vanilla and some spice. Very, very nice, and really different from so much of what is out there. If I nit pick this, I’d say a little less sugar would work well, but I’m happy to have a couple six packs of this in my cellar. This brewer is so consistent and interesting, while producing these sorts of ciders at an attractive price, they are my favorite, and this might be my favorite cider.

Smells like syrup and goes down easy. Not much of an aftertaste but left a tiny bit of film. Definitely goes well with pork.
