3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden with no head. Traditional cider aroma with slight vinegar notes. Sweet apple at first before a slightly oakey dry finish. Light and refreshing, just a bit over sweet for my tastes.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
500ml bottle from Abergavenny Food Festival. First thing that hits you is a sweet, tangy apple taste that recalls those apple penny sweets you used to get in the corner shop. Hints of vanilla, and a curious apple taste. Absolutely delicious. Love how they’ve kept the original old label too.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
500ml bottle. Pours a clear medium gold, with long-lasting fine bubble trails. Its oak-aging is evident on the nose, with some vanilla and sweet smoke notes set against a backdrop of apple skin and leather. A faint initial vanillin sweetness vanishes into tart apple skin, which gives way to bittersweet apple fruit. A touch of muscat leads into lovely smoky oak towards the finish, with some tannic leather to finish it off. There is a lingering sweet apple aftertaste. This is most definitely a superb cider, deserving of its eponymous gold medal. It is a bit like a lighter, slightly sweeter "little brother" of the exceptional Black Dragon Reserve, yet still a delightfully complex cider in its own right.
