Lovely deep amber colour, still and crystal clear. Aroma of apple peel with a little funk. Fruity flavour with a touch of wood. Smooth and rich. Another bonus is that it’s still.

Rich amber colour and an aroma of ripe fruit and funk. Dry, tannic flavour, with buttery fruit tones, and a woody aftertaste. Complex and interesting flavours. To my mind this needed a light carbonation to make this a top class cider.

First up, I agree with Bushwalker’s review (see their Cider Expert profile) - this needed some carbonation to knock it out of the park. But don’t get me wrong, I do love a still cider. On the nose this has one of the clearest I’ve ever sniffed. So good! Earthy, fruity - and so pure and clear. So nice. This cider is a crystal clear bronze and it’s lovely. It’s a single variety too (Dabinett) so bitter sweet and powerful. Full of flavour and the aftertaste lingers on and on. Lots of delicious, pure apple flavour. It’s sharp and mellow at the same time with a woody dryness with silky sweet texture. Fairly complex, medium bodied and lovely. This cider has a real creamy flow to it - very unique and unusual, almost like liquid fudge(!) - if you can imagine that?! Haha! Such a well produced cider. At 5%ABV it’s also nice to see a still cider that won’t take your legs away after one sip! I’d give it 5/5 if it had a bit of fizz - but otherwise one of the best still ciders I’ve ever had. Bravo.

Pleasent sharp lip wmacking flavours. Nice dry noyes for a medium cider.
