Bottle, 75cl. (RBNAG 07) Considering it’s high score, and it’s wonderful cousin Poltorak Jadwiga, I had high expectations for this one. The weren’t fullfilled. It looks nice, with a clear, golden body, but from there on, something is missing. The nose has honey, some heather and alcohol, but it’s far from outstanding. The flavor is honey-sweet and sugary, with some flowery notes, but still just a little better than mediocre. I also find it a bit too heathery and bitter. It has a quite full body. I may have sounded too harsh now, because it’s a really nice mead, but as mentioned, it disappointed me. (071103)
