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.

Boozey mead smell. Taste is decent generic honey mead with a bit of an alcohol presence but it’s not too bad. Medium body.

Shared thanks to Dan. Pours a clear brownish golden yellow. I was expecting a big boozy bomb and it was a tad more refined than I expected. Aromas of sweet honey, alcohol is certainly there, slight vanilla. Taste is sweet with an alcohol kick. Medium thick body.

375ml bottle shared by DCLawyer, thanks! Poured a clear dark yellow color, mostly still. Honey comes through pretty strong in this one, boozy legs on it. Sweet, but dry enough to be enjoyable. Nice.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a still deep amber color. Lots of spicy notes on the nose with some pumpernickel bread, buckwheat honey and sweet caramel. Palate is sweet with a spicy bourbon heat on the background that reads a bit peppery and herbal. Sweetness definitely hides the abv but the twangy dark bitter citrus note on the finish introduces a bit of burn and medicinal lingering flavor.
