50cl bottle from Waitrose, Sandhurst. Vintage 2014 Straw coloured with moderate carbonation; a crisp dessert apple taste, not too sweet, with some drier pear towards the finish. Very drinkable.

Theydon_Bois (17229) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2015
Bottle at home, from Waitrose Windsor, 15/08/15. Clear golden topped with a modicum of white bubbles, whose obtuse actions in terms of staying to make friends, belied the quality of this cider and left me somewhat less than sanguine upon the initial pour. Nose was crisp apple orchard, straw, light balsa wood and dung. Taste comprised pork crackling, apple xauce, straw, earthy, apple core, light wood, vanilla. Medium bodied, light spritzy carbonation, drying crisp close with apple pie licks. I was not sure I would become friends with this cider when it all started but when an alligator demands your pajamas, all you can do is acquiesce. Decent.

Bottle from Waitrose shared with McTapps. Fine one with medium carbo, medium sweetness, slight bitterness and nice touch of apples and honey. Highly drinkable and easy going finish. Really recommandable.

The_Osprey (6596) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2014
2011 vintage bottle - clear golden orange, no head, still. Smell - sweet and acidic cider, slight strawberry jam. Body is medium to light, no carbonation. Taste - sweet yet drying, apple juice, a little strawberry, musty. A bit too acidic and over-sweet for me. My teeth feel furry.

minutemat (4423) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 16, 2013
2012. Bottle from Waitrose at a service station. Very sweet Vintage, almost Normandy like tartness with minimal tannin. Refreshing, mild with little hint of alcohol. My mum would probably drink this.

leaparsons (9942) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 15, 2013
Bottle. Badged as Duchy Originals but I assume this is the same. Pale gold with light carbonation. Aromas are earthy, ripe apple with woody notes and yeast. Flavours are dry apple with yeast and oak barrel. Slightly musty with a peppery, dry finish. OK.
