4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
375 ml bottle purchased at Holiday Wine Cellar about 15 months ago ($15.99). Pours a clear yellow/golden apple juice color with no head to speak of. AROMA of warm apple pie with vanilla ice cream, tart green apples, definite cinnamon, and light honey. FLAVOR of semi-sweet honey-covered baked cinnamon apples, Calvados, creamy high-end vanilla, and an extra dash of cinnamon. Nicely balanced between the apples / honey / spices...nice that they restrain the sweetness here. Surprisingly light in body and mouthfeel and jides the almost 17% ABV really well (just a little burning cinnamon sensation down the gullet)...all this equals a dangerously and deliciously quaffable beverage experience. Excellent stuff. (96, 996)

This changed my mind about mead. Vanilla and spices on the nose, wonderful body. Not cloyingly sweet at all. Very smooth mouthfeel and drinks way too easy for the ABV. Iím hooked!
