3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks to blutt59 and thirdeye11 for going in with me on 16 Kuhnhenn meads. This was part of an epic 20 mead tasting.
Pours a nice looking medium reddish-purple color. The aroma is heavy on the merlot with some honey mixed in. The flavor is a little more complex. I get some nice, heavy oak notes as well as some grapes and honey. Unlike some of the other meads, this one is fairly dry, which I enjoy. Medium mouthfeel.

Bottle courtesy the great mead trade of 2011. (thirdeye11, blutt59, mora2000.) Pours a clear reddish color with a hint of orange. Aroma is fairly subtle. Some light notes of honey but very little smell. Flavor is dry, big alcohol bite, some wood and maybe a hint of fruit. Doesn’t finish too well.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thanks to Alex for picking this up for me... looks like a red wine, looks nice... great nose of honey, grapes, sweet and tannic, really great... the taste isn’t as good, a little boring, more merlot than anything, not bad, just not great but I’d gladly have again
