Rocket fuel review

[ #40294 ]

So, mostly conclusions without much justification. Of the recent consumption:

Weston's Vintage Special Reserve
I didn't like this as much as the first time I had it. It feels like it's over doing it somehow.
Thatchers' Katy
Nicer than the Special Reserve.
Weston's Perry
Want more. Seriously drinkable. Seriously dangerous*.
Brother's Festival Cider
I didn't like it that much. It has a slight rough undertone, like there's a trace of scrumpy in it. But I wasn't trying to drink paint stripper (this time).

Unfortunately I have run out of Katy and Perry. There will have to be a third place drink-off between the Special Reserve and the Festival Cider. Carefully. And not on a school night.

* Trumps Apple Hooch in the "danger" category. To me, Apple Hooch tastes like Appletize. Problem is that I know that Appletize is non-alcholic, and don't pace myself. Only Apple Hooch is (well, was) 5% ABV. Weston's Perry is 7.4%.

  • I'm very partial to Weston's Cider and Perry, at this very moment I'm cooking tripe in premium organic cider. I think that Weston's Vintage is very good though - you should try it again before you discard it. Their Perry is very good, and strangely enough they do both Perry and Pear Cider. My local Morrisons have a good selection of Weston's cider along with very good beer too!

    Also consider Henny's Ciders, also available at a decent supermarket.
