4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured an amber color from the bottle aromas of sweet honey, light black currents, booze, and a touch of vanilla. Flavors are the same smooth aftertaste, could drink this all day, but slowly the abv will get you.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2013 250 ml bottle. Lovely colors, orange-amber, separating into cleaner the edge, oily. Huge honey aroma, with wood and a bit of oxidation, sherry, aged Sauternes, alcohol, and a bit of sweet orange and berry. Mostly honey though. Well acidic flavor, though sweet honey through and through as well. Citrus:sweet orange and lemon. Sweet finish with some tart tang. Excellent stuff. Probably too sweet to drink a lot, though.
