COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Gold to amber color. Strong earthy honey aroma, medium sweetness, honey dominates over the malt character. Pours a nice head. This mead is made from Michigan Star Thistle honey. Braggot is made from 2/3 honey and 1/3 malt. It required 1 year of aging for this mead to reach maturity. This Braggot will handle age beautifully. We recommend you try a bottle today and an aged one in a few more years. This mead is carbonated naturally in the bottle, so there will be a yeast sediment int he bottom. Recommended serving temperature is 50 F. This example is one of just a few Braggots available in the world.
2011 vintage - 16% abv

Vignale (2196) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 8, 2013
Fat på CBC 2013. Min första mjöd och därför svsår att jämföra med andra. Söt och stark. Mycket torkad frukt som fikon och russin och mycket honung och viss alkohol. Kan tänka mig den som perfekt till en lagrad ost. Lite söt för sig själv.
