yngwie (13845) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 5, 2011
Bottle. It has a lighlty oily pour, clear and light golden in color. The aroma is mostly honey, with a distinct fruity and flowery twist I don’t really know if I like or not. Blackcurrant bush is what springs to mind. The flavor too goes in that direction, like a blend of blackcurrant and catpee. I don’t know really like that blend. Medium body, a bit oily and warming. Not bad in any way, but not my kind of mead. 111105
