It has been incredibly busy in my world. I’m still dealing with our ceiling leak. Melissa has been utterly sick. Work has been non-stop. Evenings are taken up with various things. Weekends have been slammed. This weekend is the half marathon and father’s day. And so on.
Tonight we’re finally relaxing and sharing a bottle of Stormalong The Grand Banks. Stormalong is apparently a cidery in Sherborn, MA. This is the first time I’ve heard about them. The cider is a collaboration with Bull Boy distillery, as it’s aged in whiskey barrels for 10 months. It’s a hefty cider with a 9.5% ABV. It has a unique flavor with a lot of character. For Melissa, she wasn’t sure about it at first because it’s so strong in flavor. It grew on her as she drank more. I picked up on the oaky notes immediately, and found it easy to drink despite the high ABV. Interesting and delicious!
