COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This vintage cider is made from a single year's harvest. It is naturally still and has been only coarsely filtered in order to retain as much flavour as possible. Sip or quaff, we don't mind, as long as you enjoy it. Cheers!

thirstyrabbit (1099) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 10, 2014
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.

FatPhil (9288) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 29, 2014
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.

martjoobolut (655) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 19, 2014
0,5L bottle, 2012 Vintage (ABV 6.5%). Pours clear golden-amber. Aroma is apples, vinous, tart, hints of sweetness. Taste is rotten apples, mild sweetness, and crisp tart. Overall: slightly boozy apple juice is really good description.

Marduk (2658) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 19, 2014
500ml bottle (2012). Clear apple juice color. No head. Vinegar, apples, sweet, some leather in aroma. Apples, sweet, iron in taste. I think I never had a still cider before. Quite interesting.

allmyvinyl (3176) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 13, 2014
500ml bottle at home. First (and possibly only) cider rate, just to complete Old Blighty. Basically, its apple juice with a light booze kick.

wlajwl (3817) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - FEB 1, 2014
Aroma is apple juice and hints of sweetness and astringency. The flavor is apple juice, very slight mead characteristics, mild sweetness and and a mild/medium tart but long finish.
