I felt fortunate to find this, it is hard to come by in these parts. Pours dark amber in a wine glass, small amount of head quickly dissipates. Very nice color, although I noticed it has carmel color added. The aroma is strong vanilla and oak, more oak than your average wine. The taste is bright and fruity, a little on the sweet side, with perky vanilla, bourbon, and oak flavors dancing on your tongue. The body is medium witth a slick, thin texture, and very slight carbonation. The finish is sweet and long. One of the best ciders Iíve ever had.

I donít know what I expected but it was not this. It didnít test bad but I was not impressed by the unexpected taste from a cider. ít had a very meady, honey taste to it. Not pleasant at all. No vinegary or lingering after taste, so there was that going for it.

Not bad. This cider has a sweet apple flavor, a little tart. Lots of barrel, smoke, bourbon flavors. Very different than the other ciders Iíve had from Woodchuck.

Light golden pour with no head. Smells like apples and cinnamon and some light bourbon. Flavor allows the bourbon to shine and the apples take a back seat. Easily drinkable - it isnít boozy. Lots of cinnamon in flavor. Like an alcoholic apple pie. Unfortunately itís a bit too sweet like a pie - brown sugar, etc.

I did not expect to like this but I found it quite nice. Not too expensive yet it tastes rich but not overwhelming.

12 oz bottle at home from notes. Pours a clear orange amber color with no head at all. The aroma and flavor have sweet apples, a slight tang, oak, vanilla, some subtle bourbon, pretty good for a cider, but it is still a cider.

Bottle from Wegmanís. Pours deep copper with minimal head. Apple, cinnamon, honey in the nose. Tastes rich, dense, with apple, spice, cinnamon, finishing tartness, molasses, and oak. Pretty good, and the bourbon barrels add a lot of depth to this.
