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.

50 cl bottle vintage 2010 @ home, BBE 10/2013
Aroma has semi-ripe apples and some sugary tones. Leathery palate, low on CO2. Flavour has ripe apples, apple peel, some sugar and somewhat strong, unpleasant and acidic white wine tones. Not that nice. Harsh score estimate: 3.1

(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
