375ml bottle from SAQ.
Appearance : Clear amber. Gorgeous bottle design.
Aroma : Sweet floral honey. Light spices, light remover notes, light green apples, tiny tropical fruit notes. Light bee wax.
Taste : Honey, spices, alcohol. Moderate sweetness. Floral honey on the finish with light remover notes, some alcohol. Fairly persistent honey on the finish. Rather warming.
Overall : Slightly disappointing. I was expecting it to be richer. The light remover notes are bothering me a bit. The nose has some nice complexities. Good but not something I’d buy again. Gets more interesting at it warms up to ambient. Do not drink this too cold.

Glass at Dieu du Ciel. Pours a clear orange gold with a touch of ruby to it. Vinuous, soft honey and spice. Toffee, big and sweet. Tastes like the honey syrup you get on baklava. Long and sweet, caramel and honey. Soft sweet honey. All meads should be required to be at least this good.

Purchased this a long time ago when I met the producer at Dieu du Ciel (where his product was sold). We talked all night and I bought this in a wooden box with another one of his mead. Thicker gold liquid with the aromas of sweet honey, pears, apples and hints of vanilla. The taste is sweet again, but not too much to ruin a good desert wine. The same fruits found in the nose are present as well, and balance well the mouthfeel. A beautiful mead (but better when fresh... as I remember that night we had some at the pub).

Yellow in color with beautiful legs. Aroma is heavy in honey with hints of apple, pear, and a little vanilla. Taste is bountiful in honey. Smooth and goes down easy.

lefossoyeur (589) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 28, 2010
Clear gold liquid with great viscosity. Aromas dominated by bees wax, butter caramel and just a hint of vanilla and spices. Medium body, nice freshness despite the 14º alc./vol., spicy mouthfeel, fresh, minty, goes down pretty nicely. Long warming aftertaste of spicy mandarine. Lovely mead.
