Bottle purchased at Siciliano’s. Clear yellow pour with no head and some legs. Aroma of honey, orange, white wine and slight bourbon. Orange and honey flavor with white wine and bourbon accents before a sweet honey finish. Risky due to price, but a very fine mead.

Bottle. Pours clear yellow. Nice sheen left on glass. Nose and taste of high quality honey nectar, beeswax, florals, vanilla and oak. Hint of orange zest. Finishes with a whisky-like alcohol burn, but well balanced and pleasant. Not overly harsh.

It is a slightly arresting notion that if you were to pick yourself apart with tweezers, one atom at a time, you would produce a mound of fine atomic dust, none of which had ever been alive but all of which had once been you.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared at RBWG! Pours clear gold, aroma of booze, honey, and sweet fruits. Taste follows, but the fruitiness takes over the booze, and a hint of vanilla on the back end. Sweet and really boozy, but to be expected from a mead like this.

375 ml bottle to taster at the RBWG Grand Tasting (thanks mlunger12 and Leighton). Looks goof; a still and transparent light gold. Smells good too; just like the name suggests. Tastes like it smells with a nice mouthfeel that doesn’t feel like anything 14%. Damn fine mead!

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle at RBWG 2013 Grand Tasting. Courtesy of Matt and Leighton! Pours clear yellow, no head. Glorious honey and suggestions of citrus. Big sweet flavor but not cloying, rich honey, some light dry straw. Full bodied with no carbonation. Light warmth to finish, rich honeycomb, touches of bread. Delicious stuff. Very rich and decadent but exceedingly drinkable. Lovely.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at RBWG. Hints of orange, honey and oak. Very sweet with a full wet finish. I don’t get as much orange as I would like, and most certainly on the sweet size.
