Leighton (18527) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2016
Bottle shared at the 2015 edition of the chriso Pre-GBBF tasting - London. Cheers! Pours clear, rich copper with a few bubbles. Hearty, ripe apples in the nose, with suggestions of tang. Big sweet flavour with syrupy apples, moderate acidity, apple sauce. Full bodied with fine, spritzy carbonation. Warming finish with light acidic sting, rich caramelised apples. Delicious. Outstanding.

A few samples at the ice cider festival in Montreal with Paul. After a few years of attending, the typical vendor has shaken out to offering a dry / sparkling cider, an ice cider, and usually some sort of cuvvee, winter blend or special vintage ice cider. In the past two years I’ve noticed some cideries starting to present an additional offering - a sparkling cider. Like most of their other products, La Face nails it out of the park with this one. Such a strange mouthfeel which combines the typical thickness and viscocity of an ice cider with some bubbly carbonation throughout. A touch sweeter than you’d expect but it works so well. Sweet apples, sugars, honey and bright maple glides over the tongue. Great stuff.

Bottle sampled at Mondial 2015 in Montreal with Linh, Ken and Nica. Pours a thick golden body with light bubbles. The pour alone reveals this to be different than many of the other sparkling ciders and it seems to truly be a hybrid of the sparkling and ice cider styles. Mouthfeel is a amalgamation of bubbly, thick sweet apple syrup with notes of rich sweet honey, apple pie, sweet sugar, light oak, earthy character and maybe even some cheese. Not sure why I didn’t pick up a bottle of this. Really good stuff.

Bottle, split with jaodesaulniers. Clear rich gold amber pour with tiny sparkles of carbonation slowly rising through the viscous liquid. Aroma is pretty classic, Neige sets a standard, baked apple, caramel, cooked apple, light spice. Taste is very sweet, rich, liquory apple flavor with just a hint of spice. Palate is full bodied, can barely feel the carbonation if at all, very thin. Delicious, although I wonder why they bother with carbonation.

Thick, sticky toffee apples on the nose and mouth. Little carbonation. Long legs on the glass. A hint of funk. stewed apples, some cinammon .Long, sticky, syrupy finish. Perhaps a bit over the hill now, but still a fantastic drop.

Bottle share at Chriso’s. Dark orange amber, brown hue, still, no real head. Aroma is sweet syrupy apple, strawberries and honey. Body is medium, smooth, no real carbonation. Taste is honey sweet but with tart appley acidity cutting through it, strawberries and redcurrant. Nice stuff.

Scopey (12507) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2015
Bottle at Pre-GBBF Shindig 2015. It pours clear deep amber with a quickly dissipating head. The nose is rich, juicy, unctuous, sweet apple pie, pear, toasted sugars and candy. The taste is crisp, bitter- sweet, oily, apple pie, candied stuff, cinnamon, alcohol warmth, nice fruity tartness and some Golden Delicious apple with a slick finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Brilliant balance and high drinkability. Damn tasty I say.

Tasting at Matt’s, corked bottle, vintage 2012, 3+ years old
Bright dark golden color. Deep aroma, harmonious, ripe fruits. Sweet, sour, a bit astringent, with just a soft carbonation; not much caramel, but stewed apples yes.
Wonderful, again.
