3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
