COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Smell of sherry, taste exactly like sherry, but too sweet. If you like mead I guess it’s okay...

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 (59) - 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!
