5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
The Best Cider we have tasted in Australia by a million miles.
These guys at Westons really know what they are doing.
Not sweet and syrupy like all the rubbish sold in Oz but full of flavour, character and taste! At 8.2%abv it packs a punch but you would never know by the balance.

Henry surely is the godfather of cider. The unassuming label shows what looks like a sweet old man of years gone by. But in reality that sweet old man is a double hard b****** that is going to give you the time of your life! he’s insane, he’s wild, he’s the instigator. This cider tastes great, I have drank a lot of scrumpy and mainstream cider in my time and this is the happy medium. The best thing about this cider is the fact that it doesn’t seem to contain any alcohol in the taste, there is no after taste either. But it kicks like a mule, one min you’re fine, next minute Henry has punched you square in the jaw and taken your legs out!!

Uncertian why this gets sucha low overall rating. For such a well integrated deliciously dry yet so flavoursome while not wieldng to more earthy sour style
criminally drinkably and appaulingly moreish

Attractive deep gold in colour, ripe juicy apples on the nose, cant notice any oak , but old oak wont really contribute much to the nose or flavour so that’s no surprise. Smooth palate, juicy mouthfilling flavour, not particularly dry, but has good acidity, top quality cider.

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.

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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml bottle. 2009 vintage.
Pours a clear darkish yellow colour with a small foamy head on the edges. Aroma of tart apples with strong oak notes. Flavour of tart, fruity apples, alcohol and wood. Medium bodied with a slick mouthfeel and a exceptionally good, oaky and warming finish. Very good. Lets see what aging does to this.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
0,5 l bottle from British Store, Budapest.
Pale yellow one with a superb fizzy character. Sourish apple, fementation cask, woods in the aroma, green leaves. Light body, easy texture, flavor of a riped apple, fruity, mild sweetness with a woody character. Dangerous because the alcohol is well hidden. Good one!.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
2011. One of the best examples of strong, vintage English cider. Medium body and a real depth of taste as the 8.2% alcohol provides a warm cloak to the sweet, resinous flavours that embody this cider. Although not as tannin rich as I prefer, still a firm favourite.
