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.

Bottle, pours copper with no head. Nose red apple, phenols, some booze. Flavors apple crisp, good red apple, fruity rum booze but not much, good clean. Tasty stuff.

750 ml bottle from Coal Harbor Liquor Store. Nose is tart apples, rum,and musty oak. Clear dark gold with a small, quickly disapating off white head. Flavor is lightly sweet, lightly tart apples with a background of oaky rum. My favorite was the Bourbon Barrel Aged 2007, but this is extremely tasty.

Thanks to Matt for this great cider! Bien mousseux grâce à une bulle énergique. Robe cuivrée et cristalline. Arômes de pommes épicées, compostées mais pas caramélisées. Du sucre de canne et une vanille de barrique. Que ça sent bon le rhum!! Bulle très réactive sur la langue. La pomme attaque avec fraîcheur et est complétée par un fort goût de vin duquel se dégagent d’importants tanins. Le sucre est bien balancé et jamais ne domine. Saveurs globalement bien vanillée - merci à la barrique de rhun. Absolument délicieux!

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 ambré et mousse beige qui résiste 3 ou 4 secondes. Quand même beau! Un nez de pommes caramélisées (mélasse?) et de rhum avec son profil fruité, ses sucres et ses épices. Alléchant 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 instantanément. Le corps peu pétillant a cette texture qui rappelle la liqueur fine ou moins fine que fine. En finale, la richesse, les raisins dorés, la pomme, les sucres du rhum, les épices et bien d’autres choses qui me laissent une impression indélébile ou presque. Très réussi. Un assemblage ou une mixité ou une fusion efficace. Miam!

Couleur de cuivre rougeâtre. L’arôme des pommes, rhum, une peu de mélisse et caramel. En bouche c’est très complexe, avec du rhum, sucre à canne, caramel, pomme, et l’alcool. Excellent.

Oakes (17685) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 19, 2016
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 it’s amazing by any name. Rum, molasses, oak, whiskey, rich, juicy apples. I’ve never experienced a cider like this. Truly a unique, mind blowing cider.
