Nice to try the 2022 version as I’m pretty sure I reviewed the 2019 entry year of the British Vintage. There’s hardly anything under the nose on this one. Very light indeed. Light peach notes, light leather, butter and a hint of caramel. Light golden yellow in colour and little to no fizz. The taste is tangy and memorable. It’s sugary and flows like a light toffee river with a medium bite and mellow aftertaste. Length? Nothing to write home about here but it does leave a nice aroma that’s wholesome and satisfying in terms of sweetness with a hint of bitter sours. At 7.3%ABV it’s not ‘light’ but solid and medium to light bodied with light tannins. If there was a ‘lite’ version of the Henry Weston’s Medium Dry Vintage, this would be it. It’s fruity, full of apple wholeness and very pleasant. The dryness skips away at the flavour a bit and that’s where you’re left just wanting something more from this cider that I can’t quite put my palate on…. 4/5 stars. Would buy again. Refreshing, but doesn’t quite hit home and you’re left wanting. But at the same time, is strangely satisfying. I hope you can make some sense of this! (Not my clearest review!)

Light straw colour, completely clear, slight fiz once it has settled. Slightly dry fruity aroma. Starts with a hit of bitter sweet apple flavours which move over for tannic woody flavours, these leave a drier sensation in the mouth. Pleasent cider I prefer this one to their standard vintage because the alcohol hit is dialed back and isn't the most forefront taste, but it still has 7.3 ABV.
