3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Had a small sampling of this at Vintage Estates in Boardman, Ohio where they were selling it for $22 a bottle. Pours a light clear yellow color. Aroma is sweet honey with definite alcohol and floral notes. Flavor is really nice and light and well balanced for being 20abv. Flavor is light up front sweetness without being too overpowering, balanced by a nice warming, but not burning alcohol finish. One of the best meads I’ve tried.
