3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml bottle. Bunratty! Ha. County Clare has loads of charm. Pours a clear amber color with some shades of darker colors, some sticky legs. Sweet floral notes. The flavor grew on me as it inebriates quickly: toffee, huge flowers and herbal flavor, some sticky sweet honey. Dandelions. Fairly drinkable despite being quite hot with heat and alcohol present.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark amber with no head. Smells of sticky honey, brown sugar, strong alcohol and saffron. Full oily body. Warming effect. Sweet taste of honey, sugar, with a herbal note and a lightly bitter alcohol finish. Nice sweet mead but the alcohol is noticeable. Enjoyable. Maybe aged would lower the alcohol.

First time tasting Mead, so not much to compare this to. Pours clear copper, no head. Aromas of honey, floral, white grapes, alcohol. High, sticky sweetness. Not particularly refined, but okay as a digestif.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from State Line liquors. Pours golden with no head. Lots of spices on the nose. Tastes like white wine with the odd spice thrown in. Solid but not spectacular.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is dark rum, honey and brandy. Pours clear bronze with no carbonation whatsoever. Taste is very light with honey, rum, and cane sugar. Absolutely no sign of the 14.7% making this dangerously easy to drink. Would definitely use this as an introduction to mead.
