COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Available in 500ml glass bottles, exclusively in Waitrose supermarkets and online from Waitrose & Ocado.
Waitrose Vintage Perry is made in rural Herefordshire from specially selected English Perry pears, grown in the region since Norman times. It is fermented and matured in old oak vats, where it develops its special strength and unique flavour

It poured out resembling Cristal.I drank this from a huge over sized wine goblet. Id not had a drink in 7 dayz. My mind was as jaded as a mofo...I put on some vintage R Kelly tunes and let this pear juice buzz through my organs. I expected more funky shit from this, like some rural ciders, but its a mellow, very enjoyable-sweet and dry offering. Puckering and soothing. This is pretty cool. I feel better already.

MesandSim (7118) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 18, 2009
A Mes rate. Bottle at Chris Os pre NYE tasting. Pale golden and not particularly perry like in appearance. Sweet pears with a faint tartness and a sweet finish. Not the most entertaining perry I have had but its pleasant enough.

500ml bottle from Waitrose. 2007 vintage. Best before April 2010. Pale straw colour and modestly sparkling (more so than the Westons Vintage, plus the ABV is different, so I don’t think it is the same product). Not the most complex or artisanal Perry but clean and refreshing with a touch of sharp fruit and hints of the wood. Finishes quite sweet. I generally prefer a drier product but this might make quite a decent chilled summer quaffer.

HogTownHarry (6131) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 21, 2007
Bottle (500ml). From ... well, duh ..... Vintage 2006. Pale, watery yellow, flat-looking, no head. Quite sour, acid aroma, borderline fruity - fruity, but I wouldnt swear to it being pear. The taste - nice aged pear, very tart, yeah, you can taste the 8%. Light, watery body, quite acidic and medium carbonated - it seems to guild up a bit on the palate and ultimately just wasnt 500ml of awesomeness....

Fin (7696) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 28, 2007
Bottle from Waitrose, Thame, Oxon, 27-07-07 Poured more golden than I was expecting, sweet pears, some nice oakiness, dry towards end, quite tasty but a bit too sweet and also quite heavily carbonated, less is more!

leaparsons (8323) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2006
Bottle. Golden with no head. Aromas are dry. sour pear with hints of salt. Flavours are dry, sweet earthy pear with some sourness. Some oak woodiness. Dry towards the finish. Hints of caramel. Has a nice gentle sparkle. Syrupy but not cloying. A decent perry.

harrisoni (14138) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2006
500ml bottle from Waitrose. Silver, gold colour with no head, but quite carbonated. Delicate pear aroma. Sweetish pear in mouth, or is that the alcohol? Some woodiness on aroma and end from the oak casks I guess. It is quite sweet. Pear juice flavour is nice but a bit too carbonated and a bit too sweet.
