Boom, boom. Big, bold, swaggering cider. blended to the edge of dangerous. Blended 3 times, using apple-wines aged in rye whiskey barrels.
Using Colfax Classic apple-wine plus a “Forbidden Fruit” wit-style yeast fermentation. Final blend with unfilteredfresh-pressed Gravenstein apple juice.
Full bodied, subtly spicy rye whiskey notes & taste, butterscotch & ripe apple with mild apple-skin tannins. Sexy finish.
Unfiltered & blended from apple-wine straight from the whiskey barrels. Give a solid bottoms-up tilt and swirl to disperse sediment evenly to best enjoy whiskey aromas and unique bouquet.
Best enjoyed at cellar temperature, 50/55F, perhaps 1 or 2 ice cubes. Age-worthy. Released Fall 2011.
