COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Apple wine flavored and colored with molasses and aged in bourbon barrels for six months. The secret of Rumrunner lies in the barrel. Rich, full-bodied and intriguing Newfoundland Screech barrels were the inspiration for Rumrunner which opens up to reveal notes of molasses, apples and sugar cane. Raise a glass of Rumrunner and let your apples out of the barrel.

Thanks to Matt for this great cider! Bien mousseux grce une bulle nergique. Robe cuivre et cristalline. Armes de pommes pices, compostes mais pas caramlises. Du sucre de canne et une vanille de barrique. Que a sent bon le rhum!! Bulle trs ractive sur la langue. La pomme attaque avec fracheur et est complte par un fort got de vin duquel se dgagent dimportants tanins. Le sucre est bien balanc et jamais ne domine. Saveurs globalement bien vanille - merci la barrique de rhun. Absolument dlicieux!

Taster from fhe bottle on BC Cider Fest 2017. Pours a clear golden with almost no head. Taste is sweet, very fruity with rum notes. Taste is similar, dry and sweet. Good stuff.

750ml bottle. Pours a clear copper with a small, short lived, beige head that fully dissipates. Sweet aroma of ripe red apples, bourbon, cinnamon, molasses and oak. Sweet flavour of ripe red apples, caramel, cinnamon, molasses, honey, sugar cane and oak with a dry, warming bourbon finish. Medium to full body with a sticky texture and soft carbonation. Wow, lots of complexity. An excellent cider.

From bottle at Final Gravity. Pours bright gold with a delicate apple and bourbon aroma. There is a a very unusual delicious apple and molasses flavor with a warm bourbon trail.

Corps ambr et mousse beige qui rsiste 3 ou 4 secondes. Quand mme beau! Un nez de pommes caramlises (mlasse?) et de rhum avec son profil fruit, ses sucres et ses pices. Allchant pour mes narines qui adorent le rhum. Les saveurs de tarte aux pommes et de rhum et de vanille et de fruits chauds me plaisent instantanment. Le corps peu ptillant a cette texture qui rappelle la liqueur fine ou moins fine que fine. En finale, la richesse, les raisins dors, la pomme, les sucres du rhum, les pices et bien dautres choses qui me laissent une impression indlbile ou presque. Trs russi. Un assemblage ou une mixit ou une fusion efficace. Miam!

Light brown, sweet with a light caramelly note, a touch of acid late, with shots of alcohol in the finish. As always, good stuff.

Aroma is apple pie, burnt sugar, light mulling spice? Smooth caramel apple, light alcohol heat, slightly acidic and lightly carbonated. Nice!

I know this cider as Prohibition, but its amazing by any name. Rum, molasses, oak, whiskey, rich, juicy apples. Ive never experienced a cider like this. Truly a unique, mind blowing cider.

Definitely one of the more complex ciders in terms of flavor and presentation. Pours a nice amber gold and very subtle. You can definitely taste the bourbon much more than say a Finnriver Fire Barrel. The toasted sugar really adds a lot for it. Im very happy I went to Seattle to bring these back to California!
