COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Finnriver is honored to present master cider-maker Drew Zimmerman’s award-winning Fire Barrel Cider. Pressed from traditional bittersweet apples and aged in fire-charred Kentucky bourbon barrels, this full-flavored cider offers a hint of whiskey, oak aroma, notes of caramel and vanilla, and a lingering soft tannin finish. Drew’s passion for cider helped ignite the cider rennaissance in the Pacific Northwest and now, here at Finnriver, we are grateful for his mentorship as we strive to carry on a rooted cider tradition. Made with a seasonal blend of heirloom and traditional cider apples.

a curious light cider with a nice smoothness but definitely subtle barrel character. Still dry and fresh apple forward in the nose especially.

This is one of my favorite west coast ciders - It runs a dark gold with a crisp taste of apples, hint of nuts, vanilla, a little caramel, and more. It’s a bit bourbon compared to other ciders. Definitely a winning cider :)

Tap at Beer Junction. I reeeeeally like this. The barrel lends a depth and character that the cider desperately needed. It’s still crisp. Still vibrant. But it has a vanilla and musty oak that counter the apples brilliantly, almost adding a single-malt scotch flavor. Bourbon-aged ciders are quickly becoming some of my favorite beverages, and this one is really good.

Great cider here, the balance in this beast is dead on.. Getting lots of red apple, red apple skin, and wood barrel .. Mild bourbon .. A delightful cider. .. Why yes, I do enjoy the company of apples

DuffMan (10435) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 6, 2015
Bottle, shared at game night. Medium golden hue, moderate to low carbonation. Sweet apples, light funk, hints of vanilla. Pretty nice.

3.8
mcberko (17845) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 22, 2014
Sampled at Finnriver, pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out light smoke, horse blanket and apples. Flavour brings out smokey bourbon barrels, apples and medium sweetness. Very complex, earthy and barnyard-y. Excellent.

nimbleprop (8382) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - SEP 7, 2014
22oz bottle pours a clear, dark gold with a ring of white head. Nose has apples (obviously), lots of over ripe - near rotting - apple cores, some caramel too, a little vanilla, some poached pear as well, hints of carrot cake too. Flavor is super smooth, mild vanilla, mild white grape, a little spice, a little caramel and apple juice. Super smooth finish.
