COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Golden with distinct notes of oak and apple in both aroma and flavour, I also find notes of horse blanket, a smooth sweetness and a dry finish. 1996

MartinT (7523) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 31, 2007
Big-bubbled effervescence bursts through the clear, light golden gown...Straw and apple sweetness produce an unassuming aroma and a tame flavor profile...Fine to accompany salads, perfectly drinkable, and never too thin, this okay strong cider does not show its alcohol content at all...

Bottle; best before Nov. ’08.

Gorbalev (2893) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 15, 2007
Bottle, LCBO gift pack, Dec 06. Pale yellow, some bubbles, no head. Strong apple and alcohol aroma - quite pungent and strong. Very apply taste - tart apple, finish of apple peel. No alcohol really. Crisp mouthfeel. Neat organic barnyard character at the end. Tasty!

Boutip (4490) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 9, 2007
Bottle: Poured a medium yellow color cider with some very sparse bubble. Aroma of medium sweet apple are allots dominated by some funky farmhouse notes. Some oak notes appear at the end through the oily texture. Interesting but again not what I am used to or a cider.

HogTownHarry (5984) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - DEC 24, 2006
Bottle (500ml). Pale, oily gold, quick-diminishing fizzy white head. Dusty aroma of ripe apple and pear, and a good off-dry Reisling. The taste is less "wine"-y, but decent ripe apple - soft, slightly buttery. Oily, fairly flat mouthfeel, no linger or finish, but a soft palate. Pretty good.

GregClow (2812) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 12, 2006
Bottle from a Weston’s giftpack, purchased at the LCBO. Clear golden with a slight white head. Aroma of tart apples with a slightly funky and cheesy edge. Flavour is a bit sweeter than the aroma suggests, but isn’t cloying - still a bit of tart funkiness going on, and some woody notes as well. A bit of boozy warmth to finish. Pretty nice stuff, definitely my favourite of the three in the gift box.

wnp22 (685) - Toronto (Roncesvalles Village), Ontario, CANADA - NOV 8, 2006
Tasted in Toronto. Obtained from LCBO as part of a Henry Westons 3-pack. Tasted in pint glass. Appearance is golden, clear but obvious presence of high carbonation. Aroma is sweet, some ’richness’, very little sourness. Flavor is pungent, with am oaky vanilla finish.
