Bottle sample at a tasting at kerenmk’s place. Thanks tomer. Clear amber. Aroma of honey, caramel, some fruity notes and a floral spicy hint. Sweet flavor with honey, light acidic notes, a light floral note and a light alcohol burn in the finish. Pretty syrupy, but smooth. A good mead.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, from trade with Cuso - cheers man! :-) Pours a crystal clear amber body. Aroma is caramel sauce, alcohol, nuts, nougat and hints of floral honey. Taste is stinging alcohol, nuts, nougat, deep forest honey notes and hints of caramel sauce and brown sugar. Quite pleasant, except for the overt alcohol notes, which makes me suspiscious of spirit fortification - a practice that really should be unecessary in the case of a 13,5 % ABV mead. But all in all, a pretty decent mead.
