750ml bawdy bottle, 2015 vintage. Pours deep Golden with moderate carbonation creating short lasting head. Nose of vanilla, alcohol, and tropical fruit. Thick oily mouth feel, and great big body. The pallet is vanilla, oak, hay, barnyard funk and mango. The finish is tannic with a taste of alcohol which comes from the time this cider spent in calvados barrels. This is a deeply complex and robust cider which is very pleasurable to taste again and again. With each sip more tasting notes are revealed. One of my new favorites for sure.

750ml bottle 7.5% from TheDrinkShop.com, UK. 2011 harvest. 0713. Pours a sparkling bright golden colour with a shortlived fizzy white foam head. Nice & complex aroma with apple, wood, honey, funk, syrup, vanilla, oak. Taste is well balanced and with depth, sweetish tangy apple, woody oak, barnyard funk, vanilla, fruit & honey, bittersweet, sour & dry tannins. Smooth and slightly oily mouthfeel, medium bodied, soft to medium carbonation, dry oaky finish. Very drinkable, lovely stuff.
