Well that would certainly explain why I didn't see any notice of spices on the bottle!
Are you fermenting with yeast that produces clove flavors?
I will say that the yeast in the bottle was more stirred up that I would have liked it to have been. Perhaps that affected the flavor?
I'll give it another try under better conditions and see what I think. I was trying to reccomend your cider as an example of what I thought was a quality spiced cider, even though spiced ciders are not to my taste. Thanks for setting the record straight. I'll report back when I've tried it again to let you know if I had a bad bottle.
