Tasting Notes

"Apple cider and apple juice galore, as the infusion of apple is highly noticeable. There are whispers of caramel, brown sugar and baking spices. The palate is like a sticky, caramel glazed red apple. Lots of butter and toffee, and hints of cinnamon. Fun and odd, this holds the middle between an apple brandy and a decent high-strength bourbon."
