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.

thirstyrabbit (1099) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 8, 2010
Bottle. Golden colour. Weak aroma. The alcohol is not very evident. Dry apple taste, also something that resembles mushrooms! Some oak in the finish. Interesting.

pivnizub (8797) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - OCT 21, 2010
Bottle (Vintage 2005 !!!!): Clear, pale greenish-golden, some foamy isles on the surface; solid and typical - not too sourish - nose: dry apples, not so tart, with a tinge of yeast; moderate to nearly solid sweet-sourish flavour, medium bodied and relatively soft; lingering sweet fruity (apples, what else) and sourish-tart finish. Well drinkable cider with well hidden alcohol........

Shakesbeere (212) - Oxford, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 24, 2010
2009 vintage cider. Smell is a little weak. Dry, somewhat sweet, and alcoholic. A decent drink, but the only thing really exceptional about the cider is the sugar content of the apples used to bring the abv to 8.2% (unless there was some sugar addition).

IlanMan (1015) - Appleton, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 24, 2010
Bottle. Pour was medium to light golden with a light apple aroma. Body was light with a mostly dry, but somewhat sweet character. Tasted like there was just a little sugar addition, for the alcohol content was 8.2%. The apple flavors were quite nice, not being too tart, sour, or sweet, however the alcohol was a bit strong. Decent.

EHSRanders (1763) - Tjele, DENMARK - JUL 23, 2010
Bottle. Clear golden colour with small fully diminishing head. Aroma is apples. Fruity flavor. Sour notes.

tkrjukoff (4030) - SWEDEN - JUL 11, 2010
Pours clear golden with small white head. Dry aroma of apples and fruits. Tart apple flavor, some sweetness but not too much. Very refreshing. Has nice round tart finish.

Blockley (104) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 16, 2010
2008 Vintage bottle @ home

A rather fine cider. Pours a pale golden yellow with no head. Nice fruity apple aroma, nothing artificial. Has a full body, with a dry palate. The oak aging is slightly noticeable in the flavour, and is a nice touch. Recommended.

jonno (2290) - JAPAN - APR 15, 2010
For me this is about as good as a cider will get.The tart, wild finish is kept to a minimum and a perservering sweetness balances the final bitter finish. Easy drinking and while not amazing, shows what a GOOD cider can do.

ComradeK (1010) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - APR 3, 2010
500ml bottle. Pale gold in colour, with a pleasant fruity aroma. Nice crisp apple flavour, with a relatively dry palate and nice mouthfeel. A very good cider.
