Pouring the bottle, you get a light golden liquid, with the aroma of dry apples. The slight foam quickly dissipates, but is retained in the body. The first taste is dry, like Russet apples, but then softens, the inherent bubbles tingling in the mouth as the apple flavour slowly dissipates at the swallow. This is a dry cider, and would probably drive you mad if you didn’t take it alongside a good cheese and a nice chutney to go with it.
This is a good cider on its own. But Henney’s also produce the ultimate cider. Check out Henney’s Vintage Still Cider if you want cider nervana.
The year on the cider indicates that it has been made from a single harvest of a variety of local apples.
Serve lightly chilled (as it says on the label) and enjoy it with a great ploughmans. Or pour it over ice to get a sharper apple taste.
