Two K Farms  Heirloom Ice Cider
92 points
$25
Yellow straw color. Aromas and flavors of apple orchard, butter, and cider, ripe peach, apple pie ala mode, and tropical fruits with a full body and a long finish with notes of apple rolled in honey with candied pecans, peach cobbler, and apricot. A massive cider to sip by the fireplace on a cold winter’s night.

White gold color. Aromas and flavors of apple, pear, and jasmine, blanched almond, and lemon pez and banana runts with a supple, crisp, petillant, dry medium body and a medium-to-long finish evoking impressions of pear and elderflower blossom, brioche, apple sauce and cinnamon, and leather and cedar. An enjoyable classic cider with enough tannin for complexity but enough sugar for an easy drinking experience.

Straw green color. Aromas and flavors of roasted golden apple, pear, sweet lemon, and cedar and caramel with a supple, crisp, spritzy, dry light-to-medium body and a smooth, interesting, breezy finish revealing accents of apple blossom, fresh pear, candied lemon and canned pineapple, gummi worms, and confectioners sugar. A refreshing and unctuous semi-sweet cider that doesn’t go overboard on sugar, and gives an enjoyable and carefree experience.

Aromas and flavors of caramel apple, brown oxidized apple, wet hay and leather, and cedar with a silky, bright, petillant, dry medium body and a sleek, amusing, medium-length finish imparting notes of caramel apple with peanuts, gewurztraminer, wet saddle leather, cherries, and white currant. A pleasant drinking companion waiting for pork chops smothered with apples.
