4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
250 mlk tasting bottle. Hugely rich honey nose, well aged and mellow, oxdized like a sherry. Deep orange amber with oily clear around the edges. slightly thick. Big honey flavor, sweet orange, alcohol, flowers. Very full and rich. Silky, oily, velvet. Excellent stuff. Had side by side with Kurpiowski, which has a lighter and fruiter flavor. That one is easier to drink a lot of, and lighter, this is very rich and good for a small snifter, lovely.

Bottle shared by DrSilverworm at Natifest ’12 (from notes). Pours a clear amber color with 0 head. The aroma and flavor was sweet honey as I would expect, but this had so much more. Berries, vanilla, and some alcohol. This is as advertised and I look forward to trying this again.

Bottle. Pours clear reddish amber, ruby when held to the light. Aroma is very honey, raspberry, touch of woodiness, spice. Very sweet honey and raspberry dominated, with a whiskey like note. Full bodied, syrupy mouthfeel. Not carbonated. Warming finish. Interesting desert mead.

Dobry wyrob pszczelarski. Pelnia slodyczy i miodu. Miod jest mardzo bardzo intensywny. Ma sie wrazenie jakby sam miod sie pilo tylko zadszy. Kolor intensywnie brazowo-pomaranczowy. Zapach miodu wiadomo. W tle ukryty alkohol ktorego sie nie wyczuwalo. Smak dodanego soku takze lekko jest zaznaczony, ale malo jest wyrazisty bo miodu jest ok 3/3 objetosci. Polecam.

Chilled 1 L glass bottle, not like the picture shown, poured into a snifter. Pours clear light red, medium body, and texture is extremely syrupy. Taste starts off off, then goes to big honey, and finishes nice raspberry honey. I thought I would like this more, based on the ratings.
