3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
2012 bottle, 6.5%. Golden body, no head. Slightly medicinal aroma with some fermenting/rotting apples. Low carbonation, sweetish taste with hints of overripe and naturally fermenting apples. Woody finish. Nice. I appreciate the simple old school no-bullshit label.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle (Koht, Tallinn) - as Henney’s Vintage 2012 Still Cider at 6.5%
Pleasant sharp, almost scrumpy-like aroma. Taste is broader - apples, appleskins, a little bit of that dry woodiness from aging, and some hint of the yeastiness, and of course some nice sour puckery bite in the palate. Flatish palate, as you would expect from a still cider, slightly fuller and long-lasting in the mouth thatn the previous one, England’s pride. Sweetness hangs around longer, pucker much deeper, and unfilteredness clings to every surface for a while. Finish ends up at sharp fruity apples, which is nice.
