COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A sweet mead made with whole cinnamon sticks, vanilla beans and aged on American oak. We slice each vanilla bean open by hand before adding to the mead to ensure maximum flavor extraction. Serve slightly chilled.

Bottle tnx to Greg. Pours clear pale honey color. Aroma is sweet salami honey fruity cinnamon vanilla. Flavor is similar to aroma a bit astringent, too boozy and spicy.

Bottle shared by Tmoney99?? Pours a clear extremely pale yellow color with no head. The aroma and flavor have sweet honey, vanilla and mild cinnamon. The flavor has a slight white wine thing to it as well. Thin with the vanilla being more prominent than the cinnamon.

Light pale pour. Still, so no carbonation and no head. Beautiful blend of vanilla and cinnamon on the nose. Taste is sweet - honey first then these same flavors. Just a touch of oak character. This is a rocking mead!

UPDATED: JUN 30, 2013 75 cl bottle at home. Thanks Ramy! Very light yellow color, reminds me of elderflower lemonade. Lots of flowers and roasted notes on the nose along with dry apples, perfume, yeast, sunflower and honey. Smooth mouthfeel and soft flavor with loads of cinnamon and vanilla, perfume, tobacco, elderflower, ginger and pine. Odd, yet delicious.

At the Julios mead tasting, way too much vanilla in this one, the cinnamon is a tasty unique addition

This mead was great, it smelled like wet outdoors and stale Cinnamon Toast Crunch. The taste was full of honey, some cinnamon, and a VERY generous amount of vanilla. With the cinnamon coming out in the finish, this 14% drinker was seemingly lighter. Cheers!

Boy do I wish I liked cinnamon... Nose is really nice, sweeter vanilla notes mixed with beautiful smooth cinnamon... Like a potpourri bouquet... Not bad... Flavor healthy cinnamon, which turned me off. Can’t help it.. Just not a cinnamon fan.

Pours a largely clear, still straw golden with some visible sediment and solid alcohol legs. Nose is where this began to go to hell for me: some definite spice notes, a touch of apple and fruit, but I also got a healthy dose of damp used dishcloth and window cleaner and other detergent notes. Pretty sweet flavor with a touch a of bitterness, but nothing that could overcome the nose. Very hot and heavier bodied, which made for a miserable experience, yet for some reason I kept trying to drink it thinking it would get better. Just god awful despite high hopes. The vanilla and cinnamon took a backseat to all the terrible notes for me. I enjoy mead, but this just went all wrong for me in so many ways. Gross...
