italarican (1481) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - FEB 24, 2014
Bottle at the Triad bottle share at Foothills organized by Mike. This was predominantly bourbon barrel. I mean like literally licking the barrel. A slick palate reminds you this is a mead, but it’s straight up bourbon barrel.

SHIG (3604) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - JUL 6, 2013
Bottle thanks to Hubsluvsbeer that I shared with my father in law: poured golden color with a few bubbles to no head. Aroma is strong alcohol bourbon and honey. Taste is light smoke, bourbon, honey an strong booziness. Definitely different with sweetness fighting with dryness.

BlowOffTube (485) - Michigan, USA - APR 10, 2013
Was hoping for something different but am fairly new to meads. Very clear, yellow tint on pour. Little carbonation. Reminded me of drinking watered down Bourbon, which I’m not a huge fan of. Decent, but would pass up another bottle.

umich03jm (2074) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - MAR 3, 2013
Bottle from 2012 Winter Solstice. Pours an ultra clear, bright golden yellow color with no head. Aroma is an even mix of honey and bourbon. Taste is moderately sweet, not as sweet as most meads I’ve had. Honey and bourbon are evenly balanced here. Sort of tastes like a rum liqueur in a way. Lightly boozy finish, almost no alcohol warming. This is my first bourbon barrel mead. This is really well made but I think I prefer my meads without bourbon in it.

michaelinwa (602) - Bothell, Washington, USA - JAN 25, 2013
Bottle from trade with umich03jm. Really eager to try a mead, especially something from this brewer. Has a light golden color sort of like a white wine. Aroma is slightly sweet, a little boozy, and reminds me of wine. Flavor is lightly sweet, with a strong alcohol presence, and some flavor of honey, and a hint of bourbon. Finishes sweet but in a good, and some warming alcohol. Very enjoyable and a great change of pace. Thanks for snagging this for me, JM.

jredmond (5483) - Manhattan, New York, USA - JAN 16, 2013
Bottle courtesy of lionsandbeer trade brought to Vinny’s January 2013 tasting. Pours a clear, pale yellow body with no head or lacing. Aroma is bourbon, wax and honey. Mouthfeel is slick with notes of booze, honey, wax, bourbon and light flowers.

PhillyCraft (3345) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 6, 2013
Bottle split with a bunch of heads couresty of James. Pours semi clear yellow color with no head or lacing. Notes of bourbon, butter, honey wax, bannana creme, and oak. Was a tad bit boozey but maintained a nice body and texture.

madvike (2761) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 28, 2012
Bottle from BenC...thanks Ben! - Pours dark golden yellow with no head. Nose isn’t very pungent. Caramel, white grape, dry honey, and some fruitiness. Taste is roughly the same. Real smooth caramel and honey. Subtle and not overly sweet, but super mellow. Nice. Not overly thick or slick in the mouth. Great stuff.

Steve_0 (2767) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 17, 2012
Bottle at the Colorado Mead Tasting ’12. Pour is is golden yellow with no head and good legs. Bourbon, light raisin, vanilla, wood, honey, and almonds in the aroma. Taste is sweet bourbon, green apples, pear, honeycomb, vanilla, and wildflowers with a dry lingering finish. Syrupy mouthfeel with no carbonation. Really nice mead and the bourbon really helps balance out the sweetness and dries it out quite nicely.
