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.

ComradeK (1108) - Sydney, 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.

Oakes (15651) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 6, 2010
Bottled. Still but a fizz upon pour. Pale colour. Fresh, fruity pear aroma. Light, fresh character. This perry is mellow and refreshing with an easy-going pear character and a hint of apple as well. Good, but I wonder if it isnít a bit simple.

olliejobbins (1578) - 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.

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, 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.

Sigmund (6719) - Tau, NORWAY - FEB 16, 2015
500 ml bottle, vintage 2010, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 5.4%. Very pale clear golden colour, moderate carbonation, no head. Moderate dryish aroma of perry pears, only a hint of oak and sulphites, Medium dry and fairly crisp flavour of pears, a well balanced fruity acidity, hints of oak, sulphites are not disturbing. A nice refreshment, probably also good with food.
