3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 ml bottle “2014 Vintage” bought at CitySuper in Harbour City, Tsim Sha Tsui.
Clear pale golden yellow colour; Less than none-quarter finger head with residual soapy white foam which fades in 10 seconds; No lacing with notable slow soft carbonation; Fragrant aroma of apple wine with strong tartness, strong wood barrels, light sandalwood, apple juice, white wine, light sugar and moderate tannic; Mid to light sweet taste of dry apple wine, with strong alcohol, liquorices, sparkling wine, barrel, light sugar and very light tannic; Light body, watery and very boozy palate; Mouth feel is good dry winey cider drenched in strong but quite tasty booze, not as hard-hitting as its 8.2% suggests. Barrel taste is permeating but not as strong as the aroma. Light tartness and liquorices finish. Easy and quite nice!...
Fairly dry after taste. Boozy and winey to mouth.
Comments: This is my ideal version of a scrumpy - strong but tasty booze, very white winey, not too dry and with good deal of sweetness. Not as barrel-ish or tart enough for my likings, but still very enjoyable. Nice one!
