The guys over at Sonoma Cider clearly meant to make a statement with their bold Sonoma cider bourbon brew. That statement can be summarized in one word:
Yes! Bourbon! The Anvil brings a flavor profile unlike any other, and it scores highly in all of the categories CiderConnoisseur.com rates. I’m really excited to taste the other ciders from Sonoma Cider company, so you can bet that as I find them in my local bottle shops you’ll be seeing more Sonoma Cider reviews here.
David and Robert from Sonoma Cider claim the magic behind this sexy cider is in their proprietary barrel-proof bourbon flavor. Now there’s a new concept in cider brewing, I love it! Its intensity is only paralleled to the smooth smoky finish after that first sip. If this is starting to read like a love letter, it’s because it is one!
The flavor and mouthfeel are top notch with the Sonoma Cider. Light fizz and a delicious bourbon aroma and taste makes you want to hold that sip in your mouth for longer than your should. It doesn’t hurt that the presentation is solid either. The Anvil Bourbon by Sonoma Cider is an incredible cider to say the least!
