Vintage 2015. Zdobyte z Beers of Europe dzieki Panu Jackowi. Pachnie dojrzalymi i wylezalymi jablkami deserowymi. W smaku kwaskowo slodkie, jablka jakby lekko nadpsute, troche drewna i wilgoci piwnicznej, gazowane ale przyjemnie, lekko rozgrzewajace po chwili. Tresciwe i smaczne. yy0pp (1547) - - DEC 22, 2016

Bottled in my studio, London.Appears to be a new product. Labeled 2015. Clear gold. Effervescent apple. Dry, some oak, a little vanilla. Finish is especially dry with oak. Dry apple skin aftertaste. The oak works well with this cider. Leighton (21860) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 26, 2016
Bottle at home in London - picked up at M&S. Vintage 2012. Pours clear gold with a faint bubbly topping. Pleasant aroma, with lightly aged and musty apples, nips of honey, apple skin. Medium sweet flavour with a lightly cutting musty dryness, hints of caramel, earth, leather. Medium bodied with faint carbonation. Somewhat drying on the finish, with further ripening apples, a little bitter skin, old hay. Fun one. Echon (535) - Århus, DENMARK - OCT 19, 2016

Bottle from Marks & Spencer, Manchester, as M&S Oak Aged Vintage Cider. Paler golden cider with a small dryness. Its apple is light, but its strength not overly evident. Garrold (5433) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2016
Bottle. The M&S version. Clear, very pale gold. Nose has baked dessert apple. Some sweet oak. Some toffee apple. Taste is soft sweet. Minimal bitterness. Has a curious, rubbery thing going on. A bit of a flabby mouthfeel. Finishes light sweet, with a dry close. The oak seems to have mellowed out any apple tang or bitterness, and as a results feels a bit soggy, overall.
