Proof66 Notes

Cedar Ridge Winery and Distillery lays claim to the first legal distillery operating in Iowa. They craft spirits using products primarily from their own vineyard and distill from scratch in traditional Bavarian copper pot stills.

Cedar Ridge Apple Brandy is made from a base of apples grown locally in the Iowa area. They are distilled and aged on site in their own barrels prior to bottling. They claim the spirit has a "long velvety finish." 

In an interesting review from the Beverage Testing Institute, they managed to find flavor notes of "caramel, shellac and gravel road."

Gasoline. I seriously thought they had filled the bottle with gasoline from the smell and taste. I usually enjoy all the spirits from this distiller (a little high priced, but good quality normally) but this was horrid
