Lubelski is produced with the addition of wild forest fruits to nectar honey.

One litre of Półtorak mead contains 720 g of natural honey. 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. It has a subtle though clearly discernible aroma.

Pours deep Amber. Aromas of rich honey and a blast of booze. Flavor is wonderfully rich honey. Sweet with notes of toffee and raisin. Hints of brown sugar and spice. Rich and full in body. Intensely awesome.

sebletitje (9348) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAY 3, 2015
25cl bottle from Stanpol, Warsaw. Superbe couleur acajou, rappelant un vin, épais et huileux doré au verre. Arôme sur un profond bouquet caramel, notes douces, fleuri avec une petite touche de noisette. Palais est très complexe avec une petite note rappelant la liqueur de framboise. Petite touche de baies noires, fini râpeux, farineux. Collant aux lèvres, sirop.

2 oz sample thanks to JulienHuxley!

Appearance: Clear deep amber and it leaves nice legs on the glass.

Aroma: Burst of honey along raisins, moderate spiciness, port-like, earthy/mineral notes an alcohol (not overpowering, especially considering the abv).

Taste: Sweet and fruity with raisins, honey, floral presence, moderate spiciness, earthy/mineral notes, port and alcohol heat.

Palate: Full bodied. Liquorous and a bit oily mouthfeel. Interesting warming finish with a lingering sticky honey sweetness.

Overall: The best non Schramm’s mead that I have tried so far. Quite complex and really tasty. The alcohol warmth is definitely there, but it fits well with the other components and it never feels too much. Interesting balance. Loved it. Now I need to try the Jadwiga.

Koelschtrinker (17713) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - FEB 28, 2015
Sehr süßer aber nicht beißender Antrunk. Trotz des hohen Alkoholgehalts süffig, erst zum Ende intensiv nach Honig, Blüten. 9/12/13/12/11/12

caesar (6682) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - FEB 28, 2015
Bottle shared by Borresteijn, small sample. Clear amber color, quite vinous. Aroma is flowery, honey, slight spicy, bit cookie. Quite complex in aroma for a mead, which is great. Soft sweet and sirupy in taste, warming alcohol. Good viscosity. Wonderful mead.

JulienHuxley (5640) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 28, 2015
Sample shared by borresteijn, thanks Rob. Dark colored mead, brownish-amber color. Aroma of raisins, raisin bread, light cinnamon (although maybe only by association with raisins), honey, nice dessert spice. Taste is sweet, light acidity, very easy drinking, light warming feeling but no real boozy flavor, lots of raisins. Palate is liquory, mouth coating. Very nice.
