3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Stickered: 1510212, I’m guessing it’s from 2012 at some point.
Appearance: This is the lightest mead I’ve ever seen, it pours like water and appears a very pale yellow with great clarity. The color really throws me off.
Aroma: Cinnamon is noticeable along with a floral and sweet honey presence, perhaps some coconut. No presence of vanilla that I can smell. The smell is a bit odd, even a tad rubbery.
Taste: Sweet honey with hints of vanilla and cinnamon are the intro, but the flavor really opens up to a sweet honey base with vanilla overlying, cinnamon sandwiched in between with dry oaky tannins hovering around. The finish is cinnamon, and abrupt, the odd rubbery aroma is here in the flavor, but overall this is nice, sweet and drinkable.
Palate: Light to medium bodied, juicy.
Overall: I think it’s the oak, it’s hard to tell as I’m new to meads, that is adding an unpleasant presence here. Other than that this drinks nicely and I would like to try this fresher, I assume this is from 2012.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clear, bright, light yellow....no head.
Smoky, raw vanilla and alcohol aroma.
Sticky sweet vanilla bean syrup, and yes....as other have said, it does have a Salami note to it..spiced meat, smoke.
Wow...exceptionally smooth for 14%....
Awesome. (in small doses)
The only way to ingest more vanilla is by drinking a Yankee Candle.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle courtesy of tkrjukoff. Pours clear pale golden with no head worth mentioning. Smell is sweet and surprisingly enough slightly smoky with honey, vanilla, cinnamon, salami, alcohol, sweet rye bread, dried flovers and hints of aspartame. Taste is sweet with crackers, honey, vanilla, cinnamon, alcohol, charred wood and floral perfume. Mouthfeel is sticky sweet, clogging, boozy and medium bodied. Finish is sweet and very tiny bitter with honey, vanilla, cinnamon, charred wood, butterscotch hard candy and sweet bread. very much over the top. Almost crippling sweet with a strange combination of salami and very sweet vanilla candies.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
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!
