2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, from a small vendor’s stall in the annual Prague Easter market. Pours a deep golden clear body. Nose is perfumy floral honey notes with hints of roses, red berries and nuts. Taste is floral sweet tones of red berries, fruity estery tones and hints of oranges and sugar. Medium, slick body. A bit too perfumy and fruity for my likings, but fair enough.

bottle pour from a stand at the Brno Christkindlmarkt. served hot. the spice character is prominent, the alcohol is hot and stinging, and the honey seems dirty, earthy, soil-like and phenolic. overall not very pleasant to drink, though the stand and selection was impressive: http://bit.ly/HeSA1y
