Bottle from the Cider Farm, Lewes shared with McTapps. Starting off with some golden delicious apples in the aroma and some vanilla in the back. Developing a great mix of sweet and sour in the taste. Well, more sweet than sour. Balanced carbo, medium dry finish with some earthy moments and floral influence. Some slight bitterness in the aftertaste.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
500ml bottle. Fairly sweet and sharp with some coarse tannins and alluring dryness but could’ve done with a little more fruitiness. Still, beautifully blended & makes for great winter cider drinking.
