Laird's makes a 7 and 1/2 year apple brandy (not applejack - though I believe their bonded is also technically an apple brandy?). I assume that's what they are referring to here.

OK, I figured this out, and curated this somewhat. Naming convention within KC is to simply have the numerical year after the product, so El Dorado 5, Lagavulin 16. I changed the Whistlepig to Whistlepig 10 to reflect that. 

Laird's makes an applejack (GNS + apple brandy) without an age statement. They also make a BIB apple brandy, a 7.5 year and a 12 year. So... either this is meant to be applejack without an age statement, or the ingredient should be changed to apple brandy. I chose to keep the applejack, and removed the age statement. By the way, Food Republic (the source) has it wrong, not the poster.

Quite thin and 'hot'. One bsp of simple syrup helps a lot.
