3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample from a 75 cl bottle @ Gastropub Tuulensuu.
Pours clear golden color with no head. Very herbal aroma, honey, sweet sugary notes as well as some lemon. Sweet fruits and honey on the flavor, toffee, not as herbal as the aroma is. Alcohol is fairly well hidden, mild burn on the finish. A good mead but not as intense as I hoped.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
20/07 and completed the next day at Richtar Jakub, Bratislava. It had full golden body with small legs. Strong honey aroma, spiced up with mint and some milder herb. Flavor is quite sweet with spices again, mint, cinnamon, cloves and ordinary dry herbs. Long, warming finish. Quite interesting and although a bit too sweet for my taste I admit it’s a great mead.
