2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at Spuyten Duyvil, New York
Light blond color. The aroma is strong, very flowery, with light rubber too. Quite sweet but not syrupy, with a clear alcohol warming feeling, honey flavor, a bit spicy. Not complex but not too bad.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours pale lemon color with no head. Aroma is scotch. Full bodied with zero carbonation. Mild heat. Sweet - not exactly honey. Some oak. Very mellow and smooth and the scotch is an excellent note. Finishes on a tastey honey note.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Jungle Jim’s. Poured clear golden color with good legs. Heavy whisky honey aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture. Medium honey sweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Pleasing smooth alcohol burn. Nice change of pace for a mead.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Found finally at Sommerville Supersaver, NJ. Americans like bourbon taste rather than scotch whiskey and penalize the latter, of which I certainly won’t. An above average quality honey mead with the scotch well blended. Very nice, and keeping such at only 20% ABV I think an accomplishment. Smooth and above average mouthfeel. Another mead I can enjoy sips of in the fridge for weeks. Orange colour.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Poured clear, bright golden with no head and some solid legs. The aroma had sweeter honey and lavender upfront with warm, non-descript whisky spiciness toward the back.. interesting, but well-presented integration of the whisky. The flavor had sweeter honey and floral at the core with darker honey and just a light impression from the whiskey toward the back.. finished grainier and warm. Heavier-bodied and syrupy on the palate with a sweeter complexion.. a bit too sweet and strong without the necessary elements to balance it.. albeit warm and satisfying overall.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Shared by bhensonb. Pours a clear light yellow with a scotch and honey aroma. That turns out to be a good combination. The honey counteracts the harshness of the scotch, resulting in a mellow taste. If you like mead, this is a good one.
