Bottle from Hopscotch. Thanks Eric. The mead looks like a slick cognac. Clear amber. It has strong honey notes with some nutty and ripe fruity notes. The flavor is sweet toasted and ripe fruity with light marble and wood notes. Not much booze. Great.

Had a bottle of this I shared at dark horse plead the fifth day last year. Large honey nose, sweet honey flavor, one of the best tasting straight honey meads I have ever had. Hope to get some more from my next Tampa trader.
