Bottle - Reserve 2009 - Cooked sweet nice apples. Clear orange. Very nice, rich sweet cooked apples with almost no acidity. Balanced well and very pleasant. mcberko (18084) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 25, 2015
Rating #8000. Nose brings out toffee, caramelized apples, and bready apple pie. Flavour is wonderfully complex, with notes of caramelized apples, toffee, bready notes, and light oak. Very silky, viscous and warming. Everything is in perfect proportion. The complexity is through the roof. Certainly an elegant ice cider. rood (92) - Borgerhout, BELGIUM - MAR 21, 2015
Puh, can it go better than this? Lovely yellow flavour, cinnamon, sweet pink candy. At the backend, a modest acidity. This is well made, great product. The mouthfeel at his best. Ice cider to be king! GT (10000) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 3, 2015

>> Pours deep fire iridium amber with thick alcohol legs and dense viscosity. Nose is salted caramel apple, apple strudel, freshly baked apple pie. Taste brings dark cherry, tart green apple, and mild spicy alcohol along with that playoff of salt, sour, sugar, and tannin. Not syrupy sweet, more like biting into more apple strudel or apple danish but the apples inside are fresh and still have a crunch. Mild tannin balance. This one is a knockout as expected.
