3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (2012). Quite deep golden body with a disappearing head. Aroma has sweet peary esters and sweet apple jam. Also booze. Sweet taste with honey and apple jam. Some light woodiness and a bit of alcohol bitterness in the finish which later gets more intensive, even medicinal and at times resembles rotten apples. Nice and juicy but not really complex.

UPDATED: SEP 14, 2013 2012 vintage. Pours a clear yellow/orange with very little head. Smells of toned down apple cider. Body is quite spritzy, light to medium. Flavour is apple cider, slightly acidic but very drinkable and pleasant. Nothing wrong with this. Serves its purpose in a pleasant way. Canít taste the oak, aging isnít noticeable. Bottle 9 of 9 on the night. Could drink buckets of it, but itís not interesting or complex.
