Bottle @ 10K + OT. Thanks, Jake. Clear, still, pale golden straw pour. Notes of honey, sugar, and flowers on the nose. Some oak, a hint of vanilla, light booze, and fruit loops. Minimal bourbon, surprisingly. Kind of bland and sweet on the palate. Lots of sugar, mild honey, and a touch of oak. Light vanilla, bourbon, and alcohol. Eh.

[ Bottle ][ vacax ][ 375ml ][ 10K+OT Tasting ][ Stemless Wine Taster ][ 5/3/14 ]
>> Clear white, flat pour. Nose is 100% mirin. Taste is watery, sake, bland. Super clean, almost made to pair with a specific dish as on its own it is essentially nothing.

Bottle at the tap room - pours clear straw, still. The bourbon notes are clearly present, tons of smoke, but it overwhelms what seems to be a delicate mead. The alcohol is masked by the cold, but starts to come through as a spicy burn once it warms. Nice!

Very light yellow pour. Hints of bourbon, oak, a tad of a floral flavor, warm alcohol, dry and pretty good.

Ibrew2or3 (7107) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - OCT 7, 2013
Pours with a clear water colored body that has a slight yellow tint. The mild aroma is smooth with both honey and bourbon notes. The taste has smooth slick honey mixing with smooth bourbon booze and then more bourbon into the finish.

firstsip (508) - Michigan, USA - OCT 3, 2013
Had at Brewed in Michigan (maybe it was the 3rd year? Couldn’t find anything saying one way or the other). A bit syrupy, but balanced bourbon sweetness. Not usually my thing, but not bad.

JaBier (5011) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - SEP 11, 2013
Glass at Kuhnhenn on 9/7/13. Clear gold in color with no head and slight legs. Aroma of bourbon, oak, vanilla, dry white wine and honey. Vanilla and honey flavor with a dry, oaky white wine finish.

MeadMe (1332) - Riverview, Florida, USA - AUG 29, 2013
Pours a yellow gone with light golden hues. Aroma of vanilla, and whiskey soaked wood. Flavor is a touch more mild than the Rye. Light honey up front with a touch of earth. Nice light barreL notes oak and vanilla. Hints of whiskey but no way overpowering. Balanced and tasty. Another winner.
