2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tasting at Matt’s
Cloudy orange-blond color. Strong smell of cinnamon apple bun, vanilla. Sweet, strong cinnamon flavor, and burning chili hotness (too much actually).
Nothing here says that it’s mead, it’s just a burning cocktail.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nip bottle, sent from deyholla (thanks a lot, Derek), pours a hazy golden orange with a tiny head. Nose brings out shitloads of cinnamon, honey, and more cinnamon. Flavour brings out shitloads of cinnamon, lots of alcohol burn, and more cinnamon. Definitely a cinnamon bomb, with a big alcohol burn. Solid stuff, though quite abrasive and uncompromising in the alcohol department -- almost representative of a chili mead.

Small nip bottle shared by?? Pours a clear yellow color with no head. The aroma and flavor have big cinnamon notes, honey, vanilla, some alcohol and the addition of a little heat gives a red hots sensation to the whole thing.

Taste is not nearly as hot as you think it would be, not Big Redy at all. Very easy to drink. Brings flavors of cinnamon, apples, without any hotness from booze. Very cool.

Bottle at a tasting at James’ place courtesy of James and his giant cellar. Pours a clear gold. Cinnamon and gingerbread cookies. Medium bodied, sweet, touches of cinnamon, spicy, long on the gums. Lingering spicy notes, and a soft sweetness. Nice and spicy, but alas, run, run, fast as you can, can’t catch me, I’m the gingerbread man.
