Do I have a Cider Problem?

My cider collection keeps growing faster than I can drink it!  I was clearing out the pantry to accommodate some Costco items, and since most of my cider inventory was out on the kitchen floor, I added the rest to take a group shot:

collection

Its still dominated by Woodchuck…a lot of Winter Chill, and some Barrel Select, Summer Time, Amber, Gumption, & Out on a Limb Oopsy Daisy, and even a Sour Cherry, the last Cellar Series before they moved to the Out on a Limb series.  Woodchuck holds a special place in my heart between it being the first cider I tried (Amber, a few years ago), my being one of the winners of their Ciderbration (new cidery opening) contest in 2014, all the varieties they offer, and it being my favorite commercial cider.

However, there are also plenty of interesting selections I’ve picked up lately.  I think this is the complete list in the photo above, in no particular order:

Eaglemount Quince (the half drank bottle on the far right lol)
Dragon’s Head Wild Fermented
Millstone Cobbler
Dan Armor Cuvee Brut (a $5 find at Trader Joe’s)
2 Towns Cider Master Reserve, Batch No. 01 Barrel Select Blend
Finnriver Honey Meadow
Aspall Imperial
Reverend Nat’s Revival
Thistly Cross Whisky Cask
2 Towns The Bad Apple
Tieton Cidermaker’s Reserve
Sheppy’s Oak Matured
Original Sin Pear
Smith & Forge
Angry Orchard The Muse
Worley’s Premium Vintage
Nashi Orchards Perry
Argus Ciderkin
Dublin’s Pub
Attila Scourge of God
Red Tank Happy Cider
Freyeisen Apfelwein
Crispin Browns Lane
Ace PIneapple
Schilling Oak Aged
Spire Mountain Dark & Dry

Quite the mix of craft & commercial and local & imported.  Lots of new ciders to review!

Have you tried any of these ciders?  How much cider is too much?  Or, could you never have enough cider on hand?
