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.

Flaske 0,33l. Gave fra Fin, Loz & Isobel. Delt med Rune under rateseanse i H9 1 Okt 13. Lys gylden. Lavt skum som flater raskt ut. God eplearoma. Smaken er også eple. God - men uvariert. Alkoholen er godt kamuflert.

JEK69 (396) - FRANCE - JAN 25, 2014
Bottle 2012 from Tesco: Sour and bitter, earthy and old oak. Apple flavours are not clean and fresh. However the ensemble shows a kind of unity when the purpose is a rustic strong cider with a low carbonation and a sweet finish. Average

SarkyNorthener (2253) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 17, 2013
Bottle from tesco. Very pale yellow cider. Aroma of apple. Taste is medium dry, lots of apple flavours and some wood. Not pumped full of sweetener like a lot of other commercial ciders. Decent.

mike_77 (3327) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - NOV 17, 2013
Very pale colour. Light wood in the aroma. Quite a sweet one with just a touch of woody dryness. Low carbonation, smooth and a bit buttery.

garthicus (2712) - Dublin, IRELAND - OCT 7, 2013
2011 bottle. Appearance: light orange/yellow. Zero head. Aroma: quite ’scrumpy’ , fresh apples, a little wood, tart. Flavour: fresh apples, somewhat smokey, wood (oak), bacon, weird. Not that those flavours are bad, just that they’re unexpected. A smokey cider. Hmm.

Rune (8348) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 5, 2013
Cider gift from Fin & Loz and Isobel, many thanks. 330ml bottle, vintage 2010, with a glass in a box. Clear straw coloured body. Bubbly ring to the rim of the glass. Sweet dry apples on the nose. Taste of dry and sweet apple juice. Smooth ending. Totally masked alcohol. Far too sweet for me, sorry (shared with Finn at his place in Tromsø, 01.10.2013).
