4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours a light yellow hue. Aroma is boozy, full of whiskey and oak. The flavor is big, rich, and bold. Loads of whiskey and barrel. There is a huge vanilla laden honey blast that helps to even out the boozy blast. This is a very big mead. Man do I love it though. I will savor every last drop in this bottle and look forward to consuming more. A top 10 all time mead for me.

Bottle tasted at RBSG grand tasting post-tasting. Honey and good rye whiskey in the nose. Clear golden slight orange color. Awesome wildflower honey aroma in the flavor, love it. Moderate to bigger body. Smooth, kind of slick, lighter carbonastion. More slick finish. Awesome rye whiskey wildflower mead. Starting to see a distinction in this type of honey, and I dig it every time. 19%?! Hides ABV super well.

Sample thanks to alum. A lot weirdness when Peter talks a out kissing a dude while I try to drink this mead. Probably why I don’t like mead but to each their own. Chill. Long dry honey finish.

Bottle. Thanks to Adam for sharing this. Clear white wine pour, no head. Aroma, oak, rye, some slight booze. Taste, wow, very sweet, oak, some heat from the booze but not much considering the ABV. Complex , sweet, very tasty.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUN 30, 2014 Bottle shared at DLD 2013- who opened it? Can’t remember. Final rating of the day. Glad it was a light, summery palate cleanser. Pours a pale straw gold color. Honey for sure, with some grapes, vanilla, nuts, brown sugar, and whiskey warmth throughout. Full-bodied, with low carbonation and a sweet, chewy, boozy mouthfeel. Warms you up. Re-Rate: RBSG. Downgrade. Doesn’t live up to the memory. Too much grape character dominates, washing out the complexity I recall.

# 2000. Sampled courtesey of Sebletitje – Thx! 375 ml. bright Neon Blue B. Nektar body with a wonderful label. Looks like white wine to me maybe a bit paler – any mention of head is mainly a matter of habbit – not even bubbles appear here upon pouring. Aroma is incredible, mellow honey and white wine goodness, oak, vanilla, sweet, white flowers, wild white flowers,… Taste is an incredible sweet, delicate wild flowers honey, white flowers, sweetness from charred oak whisky barrels – actually picking up more on that than the whisky which I mainly get because I know what to look for, oak , highest quality white sugar (that is not really a think but yeah,…), very light apples, this stuff reminds me of a beautiful field in spring, it is like drinking that, sweetness covers the booze, you feel the heat sliding down your throat, very warming, silk thin and silk slick body, creamy,… like summer. A wonderful treat for my 2000th rating. Thx! & to anyone who ever shared a beer with me etc.
