Although different vintages of this cider may vary slightly we do not list them separately.

Hoganís Vintage Perry (5.4% abv) is a medium, lightly sparkling perry, champagne like in colour, well balanced on the palate with subtle fruit tannin qualities and delicate fruit aromas.
A classic perry in every sense of the word, Hoganís use only 100% English perry pears to produce their Vintage Perry. The perry pears are treated with kid gloves, every one is harvested by hand and gently washed to ensure the best quality. Perry pears are unpalatable to eat due to their high tannin level but create a delicious, delicate drink. The pears contain a natural, unfermentable sugar, sorbitol, which gives the perry some of its residual fruit sweetness. As with our ciders we do not add any sugars prior to fermentation and we do not use any concentrate, we ensure that all our perry contains more than 85% perry pear juice in order to bring you the authentic taste of the English Pear Orchard.

DruncanVeasey (7881) - NUNEATON, TOP, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2014
2010 version from Waitrose. Headless pale green. Aroma mildly edgy and cheesy with good tannic mouldering fruit. Dry, tannic and crisp with a ridiculously drinkable Appletise sweetness untainted by toothrot. Just plain wrong.

stravale (2579) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - AUG 2, 2014
Bottle from Cellar Blackrock, Dublin [280814]
Light golden, clear, no head
Aroma of soft sweet light fruits - apple / pear
Taste of soft sweet pear, slightly tart, very simple, very slightly tannic
Palate - Medium carb, medium light body, soft acidic. Finish is soft sweet
Overall - Seems very simple to me, got rather bored with this by the end of the bottle. Found this to be unremarkable to be honest.

Philym (1003) - St Neots, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2014
Appearance: Clear golden/straw/green with bubbly white head on the pour. Aroma: Pear, floral, honeyed, subtle barnyard and hint of caramel. Taste: Initially medium sweetness and acidity with low tannin. Then medium acidity and tannin with low sweetness in comparison. Palate: Thick smooth texture, medium body, low/average carbonation, lingering slightly dry, tangy, tart pear finish with a balancing sweetness. Comments: Very good.

ComradeK (1076) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - MAR 14, 2014
500ml bottle, 2010 vintage. Pours an attractive clear, deep gold. Mildly tannic skin notes, vanilla and pear juice make up the aroma. Tart pear skin and a slight leathery flavour up front lead into subtle, slightly sweet pear fruit in the mid-palate. A slight lemon flavour gives it a nice, crisp finish. I donít know why this rates so poorly; it is a very good example of proper, English medium-dry perry. Very enjoyable.

danlo (1851) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2013
500ml bottle from Cider Tap, Euston. 2010 Vintage. Clear pale yellow gold colour, bubbly head that quickly dissipates away and aroma of pear & banana. Taste is fruity pear with woody oak notes and some tartness. Slick mouthfeel, medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry tannic finish. Quite OK.

oh6gdx (23707) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 31, 2013
Bottled. Pale yellow colour, no head to talk about. Aroma is pears, apples and some ripe fruitiness along with mild vanilla and vinegar to it as well. Flavour is pears, vinegar, some mild applelike notes as well as some resiny notes.

minutemat (2913) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2013
500ml bottle at home. Has a peculiar sour taste, complex sweet flavours but almost off tasting. Not sure I like this at all.

FatPhil (11836) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 12, 2013
500ml bottle (Kaisla, Helsinki)
Very pleasant crisp estery aroma, peary and appley. Pleasantly sweet but a little watery perhaps. Clean pears i the taste, with a nice sharp bite too. Very pleasant quaffer, slips down too easily. Overpriced at 11e though.

olliejobbins (1526) - Dorking, Surrey, ENGLAND - JAN 30, 2013
500ml bottle from Waitrose. Pours a light gold with no head or lacing at all. Tastes dry and tangy with a lot of pear/apple coming through. After taste is a little sharp but still nice.

Ernest (6910) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 19, 2012
Bottle. Head is initially very small, fizzy, white, fully diminishing. Body is very light yellow. Aroma is lightly yeasty (basement), with light notes of apple/pear skin/seeds/stems, hint of kiwi. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation, lightly astringent. Very mild in all ways...light color, light aroma, light body, mild flavor. Pleasant and clean, but yeah...pretty unremarkable.
