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.

Senka (411) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 10, 2013
2011. Faint aroma, thin texture but beautiful color and alcohol is well hidden. Watery but enjoyable. Can be served Ice cold, or at RT. Always a pleasure to have a glass.

minutemat (1282) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2013
2011. One of the best examples of strong, vintage English cider. Medium body and a real depth of taste as the 8.2% alcohol provides a warm cloak to the sweet, resinous flavours that embody this cider. Although not as tannin rich as I prefer, still a firm favourite.

2011. Delicious cider but far from the best I have tried. Nice apple flavour and aroma. quite strong and it is noticeable.

leaparsons (7926) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 11, 2013
Bottle. Golden and fairly still. Aromas are caramel and wood with hints of eggy sulphur. Ripe apple fruitiness. Flavours are sweet and sour apple with dry woody notes and background caramel. Fairly evident alcohol. Easy to drink despite the strength.
Earlier Rating: 1/26/2005 Total Score: 2.7
Pale gold in colour. Aromas are sweet and earthy apples with some sour notes. Flavours are sweet(ened) apples - a bit artificial. Slighty woody and dry with an acidic, slight vomit finish. You can’t really taste the alcohol. So so.

dreamflower (539) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - APR 20, 2013
Bottle shared with northropfrye. Not much aroma to speak of. Faintly oaky fruity. Beautiful clear appearance. Delicate floral taste. Lively palate.

northropfrye (2079) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - APR 20, 2013
Definitely a woodsiness to the aroma, also apples, obviously. Faint yellow colour. Taste is sweet apple and smoky wood chips. Abv well masked.

Vintage 2010. Dobry cydr. Mocny alkohol nie wyczuwalny, ale po wypiciu troche w glowie szumi. Kolor cos pomiedzy zlotem a bursztynem. Piany nie ma wcale. Zapach jablkowy, troche jakby sfermentowanych jablek. Smak tego wytrawnego cydra jest typowo jablkowy z wiekszym nastawieniem na odmiany kwaskowate. Wszystko jest ok ale podejrzewalem ze bedzie to cydr znacznie lepszy od odmiany organicznej ze wzgledu na dojrzewanie w debowych beczkach.
