This mead is made with 100% tupelo honey. This sweet mead has very floral aroma and a little bit spicy. The rare tupelo tree grows only in a few parts of the world, making it one of the most celebrated, and expensive honeys.

Sampled during Great Taste of Midwest ’09 in Madison, Wisconsin. Pours a still very light pinot gris colored mead with a clean disk top and some thin viscosity tears inside the glass. Aroma of fresh sweet unpasteurized sweet honey (visit a honey farm to experience this) with some floral and unflavored gum. Taste is one of the sweetest honey I’ve ever tried. You can definitely detect the White Tupelo honey in the flavor which lacks some of the sugar character as in store bought varieties. Finish is silky smooth, with a soft honey aftertaste that even lingers a little after the finish. One of B. Nektar’s finest!

The first B. Nektar mead I tried at GTMW 09. A floral honey aroma that was very pleasant and unique. Supremely sweet in both aroma and flavor, like most well done meads this does not become cloying at all. A smooth finish as well.

Bottle at cgarvieuk’s Danish Invasion extravaganza. Pale yellow gold pour. Soft elderflower and blossom honey, hint of open alcohol on the nose. Slightly tart apple flavour with spicy honey flavours underneath. Very clean with a nice almost-sherbet character. Quite light in body, lovely long tart finish with just the slightest hint of alcohol. Really interesting, lovely stuff.

Tupelo honey is a favorite of mine and this did not disappoint. Nice light brown still pour. The flavor and aroma is all about right sweet mildly floral honey. Very sweet and very tasty. Great stuff.

Cheeseman ripped this baby open at the Double Barrel Zhukov release. Oh yeah..... Clear light yellowish pour. Really nice sweet honey, floral aroma. Tangy honey taste, just so clean and devoid of off flavors. Soooooo good.

Golden, fruity, candy fruits, so easy to drink. Oxygen has had its way with it but i also think its done some favours.
