It has very rich specific fragrance due to the addition of raspberries and wild rose to nectar honey.

1 litre of Półtorak style mead contains 720 g of natural honey. By comparison, the Dwojniak style of mead contains 610g/L of honey; the Trojniak contains 420g/L and the Czworniak contains 320g/L.

Półtorak mead matures for several years to achieve full clarity. In time its rich aroma hides a high content of alcohol (16%) and acidity forming the finest liquor there is.

Leighton (13985) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2015
Bottle at home in London - but just a little bit! Picked up at Julio’s. Pours clear, rich amber with no head. The nose holds a lot of rich honey, lightly crystallised, with subtle citric tones underscored flowers and dried berries. Big sweet flavor with thick, viscous honey, more flowers, some caramel, clover, raspberry, cherry, bread. Full bodied, thick and chewy, soft and oily. Warming on the finish with more rich, decadent and lightly toasted honey, some mellow alcohol, berries, clover. As you swirl it around your mouth it feels more and more like real honey. There’s lingering warmth and sticky, luxurious honey character. Wonderful stuff.

Big thanks to Mr L. K. Smith for this mead monster. Appearance-wise it is a clear, oily amber. The nose is rich, unctuous, oily, toffee, toasted bread, dried fruits, cinnamon roll and honey. The tast is rich, oily, juicy, honeyed fruits, toffee, burnt caramel, baked goods, apple, pear and tarte tatin with a smooth, boozy finish. Rich, sweet and oily. An enjoyable sipper. Cheers!

15/XI/14 - 25cl bottle from an Apis honey shop (Gent, Brussels, ...) @ home - BB: n/a (2014-1339)

Clear dark amber mead, very adhesive, tears trickling down the glass. Aroma: bourbon, caramel, vanilla, sugary, alcohol, honey, bit oxidized. MF: medium to full body. Taste: sweet sugary start, alcohol, honey, caramel, bit floral. Aftertaste: sugary, honey, alcohol, some walnuts, sweet. Nice, although I have very little experience with mead.

Lisowczyk (67) - POLAND - SEP 27, 2014
Butelka 0,75l Barwa herbaciana z czerwonym dodatkiem. Zapach: dominuje oczywiści miód, zwłaszcza wrzosowy, sporo malin, kwiatów, delikatna róża, odrobina przypraw korzennych. Smak: maliny, róża, wrzos, przyprawy/zioła, figi, miód wydaje się połączeniem lipy-spadzi i wielokwiatowego. Alkohol rewelacyjnie ukryty. Bardzo słodki, bardzo gęsty, pyszny!
