Bottle. Pours a murky orange/brown with no head. Aroma of buttery apples, general sweetness. Flavor of sweet apples, vanilla, caramel, toffee, and oak. Very nice and sweet, easy drinking (for an ice cider). Excellent! 8/4/8/4/15 [3.9/5]

Rustyham (1836) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - OCT 4, 2009
This is fantastic- certainly the thickest, darkest, most opaque cider I have ever had. It smells like a an apple brandy and tastes like apple butter. Thick as a nectar and very cloudy, like a hot caramel- apple cider color. Fantastic vintage 2006 bottle from Knightly Spirits in Orlando, Florida.

Felt like drinking apple sauce. It had a velvet texture and the flavor did not last long on palate. Overall the experience was excellent.

This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a medium sized head of ivory colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a slightly hazy brown orange colored body. The strong aroma was of old red apples. The mouth feel was thick initially with a smooth dry vinous aftertaste. The sweet dry flavor contained notes of old red apples. A decent one that I would consider buying again. Although the flavor came off to me as old, it was still quite good and not at all bad.

DSG (13906) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAY 17, 2009
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2010 Re-rate 6/7/10: Bottle sample at a tasting. Thanks zvikar. Vintage 2007. 7.5%. Tasted about a week or two after the bottle was opened. According to other raters it tasted pretty much the same as on the day it was opened. 7/4/7/3/14=3.5

Bottle. Vintage 2006. 7%. Clear golden-brown color. Aroma of apples, some apple liqueur, some candies and notes of other fruits. Very sweet, a bit vinous, sugary flavor full of ripe apples, caramel and a bit of alcohol. Thick, viscous, mouthfeel which is slightly sticky. Feels more than 7%. A bit too sweet for me, but still a nice sipper. 6/4/7/4/13=3.4

Kinz (3786) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - APR 3, 2009
Thanks to maniac for this one at the Richmond Gathering. Clear amber with great legs, liquor appearance. Huge apple aroma, just a concentrated shot of it that was wonderful. Flavor was much more complex, with raisins, apple, tawny port and caramel coming through. I really enjoyed this one, for me it was one of the highlights of the evening.

Bottle, 7%. Sweet apple aroma, also reminds me of liquorice powder... tyrkisk peber. Hazy amber colour. Brown powder sugar flavour. Quite sweet flavour, and not very appley. Good in small doses.
