UPDATED: JAN 21, 2009 Bottle No. 2872 - 2006 vintage.... This cider rocks!... Pours clear and deeply golden. Thick, creamy legwork reminiscent of a gallon of paint that has been splashed against a wall and begins to cascade its way toward the floor in a dense sheet. Nice apple, brown sugar and cinnamon nose – sweet and fruity with a suggestion of acidity and spice. Full-bodied with a mildly syrupy mouthfeel. Huge, sweet apple flavor up front that envelopes my palate, then slowly makes the transition toward gentle acidity on the sides of my tongue and back of my throat. Sweet and warming in the end. Thanks go out to TheCheeseMan for saving the last of the bottle for me and giving me the empty! DuffMan (10434) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 3, 2012
Bottle, shared for my in-laws 40th Anniversary. Labelled as #1346/5000. Lovely deep umber hue, sticky legs. Aroma is baked apples and pears, dark honey, caramel, hints of spices. Beautiful rounded palate of baked apple crumble, buttery toffee, light honey. Waves of flavour, balanced with a light acidity. Deep and rich, not cloying. We paired this with a fresh Penticton peach and plum cobbler and homemade candied ginger ice cream. It was one of the most memorable pairings we’ve had. jercraigs (10374) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 6, 2008
2008-06-01. Third day at Mondial and going strong... well, going anyways! Starting off with a cider seemed like a good way to kick start the senses. Dark golden yellow body (3+). Surprisingly mild aroma, light musty over-ripe apples, sweet. (7+) Sweet apples up front in the flavour, light sugar, quick tart apples in the finish have occasional touches of musty skins, lingering tart apples in the finish and aftertaste. Smooth, medium bodied palate has a nice weight to it without being too heavy. Pretty nice. 2006 Vintage Bottle, Mondial, Montreal, 6T
