It's fall in case you haven't noticed the pumpkins and cool breeze. This is our favorite time of year at Vintage Paris. We get to enjoy more hot coffee and tea. New seasonal beers and pumpkin flavored things. We have our annual Pumpkin Carving Contest and costume contest. The cool weather means more time by the fire and sipping on cider...
This month's review is Journeyman Distillery's O.C.G. (Old Country Goodness) Apple Cider Liqueur. You may have heard of Journeyman Distillery's Whiskey. If you haven't had their rye whiskey yet, you need to as soon as possible. This is cider is a little different. It includes Journeyman's organic white whiskey, organic apple cider, organic apple juice, and Cinnamon. Here's my review:
Aroma: smells like a fresh slice of hot apple pie with a rich caramel sauce and little scoop of vanilla ice cream
Palate: superb balance, deep cinnamon and bright apple combined with a dark brown sugar sweetness
Finish: long and satisfying, minimal burn
Overall: deceivingly smooth and balanced, dangerously good, perfect for fall
Enjoy hot or chilled. 1 liter bottle $29.70 available at the shop now.
