an OG of 1.100 sounds like you added sugar to increase the ABV. a cider with substantial added sugar to achieve higher alcohol than a common cider is an applewine & should be entered in 28C & specify carbonation level (still, petillant, or sparkling) & sweetness (dry or medium)

if you didn't add a "substantial" amount of sugar, then it would be entered in the category it best fits; common, English, French or New England

if by "iced cider" you mean "freeze concentration" then it would entered in the category it best fits, just specify it's been iced.

I've entered my jacked applewine in non-BJCP competitions under 28C

28D 'Other Specialty Cider/Perry' is where it should go, by virtue of not fitting in any other category.
