Un liquide pâlot. Un nez floral, boisé, épicé, de miel d’alcool et de paraffine. Des saveurs légèrement acidulées, une texture soyeuse, un alcool mal dégrossi, qui manque de subtilité et qui étouffe les particularités propres au miel. Lot 266-142 (1772-150316)

Clear golden with no head. Aroma is sweet honey, floral notes with a touch of vanilla, oak and alcohol. Taste is sweet, light fruity tartness, floral, light dry finish with sweet honey and some warming alcohol. Medium bodied, oily texture, no carbonation.

La robe est jaune claire. Ses parfums de miel, de vanille, d’épices et de fleurs sont fouettés par une brise d’alcool et des vapeurs de chêne. Ses saveurs de miel sont enrobées par du citron et par un alcool blanc et un peu cacophonique. En bouche, le liquide est texturé comme un vin légèrement fortifié. En finale, des saveurs fraîches d’agrumes viennent mourir dans une douce chaleur mielleuse. Un produit très intéressant mais trop porté par l’alcool. Parfait pour le partage.

_angst_ (4466) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 7, 2015
Bottle courtesy of AdamJackson. Pours clear deep golden leaving some slick trace rather than lacing on the glass. Smell is sweet with dark honey, caramel, vanilla, charred wood and alcohol. Taste is sweet, tiny sour and boozy with honey, lemon juice, moist oak, alcohol and lemon zest. Mouthfeel is round, tiny sticky sweet, tiny tart, heavy boozy and medium bodied. Finish is sweet and tiny sour with honey, caramel, lemon juice and alcohol. Solid mead... Bit too boozy...

Sample. Pours clear blond with no head. Good legs. Aroma is of sugar, honey, alcohol, spices, fruits, perfume. Taste is of alcohol, honey, medical chemicals, flowers. Palate: Full bodied. Flat. Overall: Good. That oxygenation thing + long time in barrel seems a bit much to me.
