Bottled (filtered).
This premium cider is fermented and matured in old oak vats from a single year's crop of cider apples. It is a strong cider with a very high bitter-sweet juice content which gives a full rich fruit character.

sound67 (700) - Offenbach, GERMANY - SEP 6, 2016
Bottle, 500ml (2014 Vintage). *** Colour: Bright yellow golden, clear, no head. *** Nose: Ripe apples, vinegar. A hint of vanilla. *** Mouthfeel: Medium body, hardly watery. Soft carbonation. *** Taste: Sweet and sour apples at first, some vanilla, mild oak. Oak gets stronger in the semi-dry middle, again some vanilla. Dry, mildly sour finish, with a softening vanilla note. Aftertaste of musty apples and light oak. *** Impressions: You would never know that this cider is 8.2% ABV. Smooth, with very moderate oakiness and vanilla, medium-sweet apples. Not quite as much depth as one might have expected, but a well-balanced, superior cider.

bhensonb (14092) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 26, 2015
Bottle from the Waitrose on Glouscter Road. 2014 Vintage. Pours pale gold with a few bubbles. Aroma is very light - suggests apple vinegar? Nope. It’s just a little bit oaky. Funny how that came into the aroma. Finishes less than dry, but it’s very pleasant.

Senka (1059) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 30, 2015

worldbeertaste (1795) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2015
Pale yellow wih a fizzy disappearing head. Smells of sour apples, vinegar and grapes. Sweet initial taste of sweet Apple but moves quickly to a dry finish with sour lingering. Though very simple it it surprisingly very smooth and draws me back.

MichaelAwesome (6458) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - AUG 10, 2014
Bottle from Morrison in Newport shared with McTapps. Simple cider with a bit too much of sourness and little less aroma than expected. Apples, some lemons, bit watery for that high ABV. Still a good job done but not outstanding.

Aliased bottle as Morrisons Vintage Cider 2013 bought at Morrisons in Newport. Pours out in a light clear golden colour with medium body. Aroma of mild apple juice. Taste of red apples, caramel, leaves and light sour green apples. Dry and crisp finish. Quaffable and easy drinkable - enjoyed it.
