I had high hopes for this pie, as I opened the cellophane wrapper there was a wonderful boozy smell. A good looking pie, with 5 steam holes, usually a good sign of plenty of filing. Quite a large pie, with plenty of pastry overhanging then edges. A good size and weight, with a lovely aroma…Could this be a great pie? Alas, no. First impressions were spoilt by rock hard pastry! far too tough. The Filling was good, not too sweet and fruity. But that pastry really spoilt it for me. How could it be so dry when it was wrapped in cellophane?…. A good effort, and the best score so far in 2010!
