This cider, which is made from top quality apples, has been allowed to mature in old oak vats for up to six months and then specially selected for Henry Weston, great-grandson of the founder, as the very best of the year's vintages.

UPDATED: JUL 20, 2008 500ml bottle (Hell Hunt, Tallinn)
Clear golden cider, slightly fizzy, but no head. Dry fruity aroma, quite subdued. Mellow apple taste, quite sharp, not too cartoony at all. Fairly sweet, balances the sourness, but not at all sticky. Reasonable finish reflects the earlier tastes.

downender (5924) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2008
Bottle from Sainsburys. Pale gold colour with no head and slight carbonation. Sweet, slightly industrial apple aroma with a hint of yeast. Sweet apple apple flavour with a dry finish. Alcohol not prominent, but the drink wasn’t particularly refreshing either. Not my kind of cider.

thewolf (10792) - Kolding, DENMARK - JAN 11, 2008
Bottle, bought @ Øltorvet.dk. Pours quite golden with a little head on the pour - disappears immediately. Lots of bubbles breaking the surface. Aroma is sweet with lots of red apples, a great dose of sourish oakiness. Mouthfeel is flatter than expected with a nice oily feel at first. Flavour masquarades the alcohol very well. Sweet and sticky apples at first, with a great dryness. The oak appears as a great tarty finish. A good cider, but it is very powerful, tart and dry.

Slacks (615) - Bolton, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 1, 2008
500ml Bottle: Actually tasted this one almost a year ago, forgot to rate it as I see in my notes here. Poured golden, apple-juice in colour; mine offered no head at all. The aroma is obviously high in apples, but there’s a distinct sweet white wine coming through as well. Both prevalent in the flavour, but it’s extremely tart and unpleasant to me. Couldn’t finish it, but it’s possible it’s just not my thing.

blankboy (5805) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 15, 2007
Bottle. Pours a clear bubbly gold with a spare diminishing white head. Aroma of tart apples, oak and a hint of white wine. Flavour’s also of tart apples but it’s somewhat sweet along with some oak and a hint of alcohol. Average bodied. Nothing special, it’s just O.K.
