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.

leaparsons (8070) - 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.

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 (576) - 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.

Grzesiek79 (3203) - Radom, POLAND - MAR 27, 2013
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.

Pours a pale yellow. Aromas are medicinal and woody. Some sweetness. Flavours are sweet apple, and a nice oakiness...some medicinal flavours too. Pretty good.

andrepintado (1424) - Lisbon, PORTUGAL - MAR 12, 2013
50cl bottle from el corte ingles, lisbon. Very light golden color with thin head. Fizzy medium to high carbonation. Sweetness is maybe to high for me, but there’s some bitterness here. Interesting apple and light wood aroma.
