Boom, Boom. A big, bold swaggering cider, blended to the edge of dangerous. An American original. An authentic American rock ‘n roll cider.
Blended 3 times, using apple-wines aged in American rye whiskey barrels – Colfax Classic apple-wine plus a “Forbidden Fruit” experimental wit-style yeast fermentation. Final blend with unfiltered fresh-pressed Gravenstein apple juice.
Poured Appearance: Whiskey Cloudy. Slightly opaque.
Color: Rich golden orange.
Aroma: Mild moonshine Tennessee woods, soft spicy rye whiskey, ripe apple.
Flavor: Dry, subtly spicy rye whiskey, butterscotch, faint banana & ripe apple with mild apple-skin tannins. Full bodied sexy finish.
Final Blend: 63% fermented apple-wine, 23% Gravenstein fresh-pressed apple juice.
Unfiltered & blended from apple-wine straight from the rye whiskey barrels. Give a solid, firm bottoms-up tilt and swirl to disperse sediment evenly to best enjoy whiskey aromas and unique bouquet. Best enjoyed at cellar temperature, 50/55F, with or without 1 or 2 ice cubes.
Stagger Lee is most certainly worthy of aging in your cellar.
