Proof66 Notes

Laird's Applejack is a blend of 35% apple brandy (similar to French style calvados) and 65% neutral spirits (think vodka), which they say provides a spirit "that possesses a hint of apple flavor and aroma." In its production, it uses only whole apples with no additives of any kind. Even the fermentation is done naturally in 20,000 gallon tanks with no yeasts. The apples are sourced from the Shenandoah valley;

It's not the full bodied competitor for French calvados. It's also pretty hot on the finish... hotter than I think it should be. It has a nice apple nose and performs well in cocktails, so there's that. But I don't see myself buying this one again.

Riding a moped at full speed. Kissing your sister. Eating fish sticks. Watching Jay Leno instead of Johnny Carson. Pale imitations of the real things, my friend -- that's what these things are. So it is with this overhyped colored vodka. You want apple spirits? Drink Laird's 100 Proof Apple Brandy (which needs added to this database, hint, hint).

I can't compare this to any other applejack, it's the only one I've had. It's excellent in a Jack Rose, and dangerously good in a plain ol' applejack sour. I highly recommend it to anyone who likes whiskey based sour type cocktails, and pretty much to everyone else too.
