The weekend was great fun with the Xmas party and a friend’s birthday, but it’s a bump back to reality now with Monday upon us. Back to Wales I went to today for work, got home a little while ago, had my dinner and now ready to settle down with some TV and cider. Up today is the Porter’s Perfection Single-Variety (SV) cider from Bridge Farm

This is the 3rd cider I’ve had from Bridge Farm, with both of the previous ones being of a decent quality. They were not up there with my favourites, but both were really tasty. Hopefully the Porter’s Perfection can live up to that standard and go one better than them!

The cider has a great start to it, with it being still and smelling of gorgeous fresh apples. There’s a light wine-like aroma too, but definitely some juicy apples are in that glass waiting to be drunk. Temptation was getting the better of me by now and I had to just go straight in there and have a taste. It’s really smooth, has a good apple juice taste, with a hint of a bittersharp finish.  You can feel a little bit of sourness in the tail of this drink and a slight cheesiness feel to it. There’s also a light wine taste to it aswell, but at the same time you can tell it is a cider. The flavour is not like anything I’ve really had before and just works for me. It might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but have a try of this to see if it is.

Would I buy this again?: Yes
Overall Rating: 8.5/10
