Cider Taste off

MOREKASHA | Dec 2, 2011 06:01 PM

This year for T day we had a hard cider taste off instead of wine. First we had Annandale Atomic Hard Cider made in the lovely hamlet of Annandale on Hudson (home to my Alma mater, Bard College), Thin, tart in an acidic way and none to pleasing to my taste buds. Gimmicky packaging, mini mason type jar and being called Atomic just is plain gimicky. Then we had a bottle of Hudson Valley farmhouse Cider by Breezy Hill Orchards. Bit more body and roundness in flavor. Easily the best American hard cider I've had so far. The final cider was Dupont cider from Normandy. My fave cider of the night and my regular/go to cider. Good body, great bouquet, a beautiful roundness and what I judge most others against (except for the Basque ciders which are almost a different animal).
