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.

prawlie (1107) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2012
500 mL bottle from Tesco poured into a pint glass. Head disappears immediately, light lager colour with a little fizz. Pleasant cider aroma, nice and fruity. Sour and dry finish, well matured apples. A reasonable drink, but ultimately I prefer the taste of a beer.

JorisPPattyn (7815) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAY 17, 2012
2010 Vintage A few seconds of white foam, then very clear yellow-golden liquid. Apples, and a sourness that smells acetic, woody, not unlike Oud Bruin (with apples,). Tart, but not acidic, very dry apples with little restsweetness; faraway glimpse of wry bitterishness. Bit watery, thinnish MF; falling flat; little or no carbonation. Rather decent, certainly better than expected.

Pale gold with a slight darkish tint. Sweet start on the nose that moves to a citrus vinager oak end. Light watery, medium carbonation oily. Taste of oak and apples. Acidic and strong.

UPDATED: FEB 14, 2012 50 cl bottle vintage 2010 @ Kerho
Aroma has raw apple, some earthy and leathery notes. Flavour has apple, some oaky notes and hints of vanilla. Expected a bit better, feels like 5% stuff. I like more my ciders (even) more dry.

Papsoe (25089) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 9, 2012
Bottle 50 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Comes as: "Waitrose Reserve Cider". Pours a clear golden with a white head. Spicy apple aroma. Medium body, lowish carbonation, apple, sulphur and a solid astringency leaving quite some tannins on my teeth. 090212
Earlier Rating: 5/21/2006 Total Score: 3.3
(Bottle 50 cl) Clear golden with a rough, dissipating head. Tart apple aroma. Medium body, quite sweetish with distinct apple flavours. Very soft and pleasant, the alcohol is definitely there but yet quite discreet. 180506
