A sample at the Julios meadfest, not too much vanilla on this one. Apple is dominant

From a bottle in Savannah. Pours clear pale yellow. Smells like bourbon, vanilla, sweet honey, spice, and oak. Tastes delicious like sweet apples, honey, vanilla, and cinnamon notes. Very smooth and well done.

Bottle at Chriso’s Christmas tasting, London. Many thanks to Leighton for this one! It pours a slightly hazy very pale straw color with no head to speak of. Aroma is very sweet with loads of cooked apples a tiny bit of plastic and light booze. Taste is similarly very sweet with baked apples, candy sugar and caramel. Medium palate, sticky, flat. Overall, very good

Scopey (7455) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2014
Bottle thanks to Leighton. It pours clear, oily pale gold. The nose is sweet apple, juicy, earthy, cinnamon, nutmeg, tart tatin, honey and light alcohol. The taste is sweet, oily, honey, apple pie, pear drops, vanilla, alcohol, chewy, ripe apple, dull fruity tartness and spice. Medium body and oily mouth-feel. Straight up apple pie. Thankfully not too sweet. Not much depth, but enjoyable anyhow.

Leighton (11900) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 7, 2014
Bottle shared at chriso’s pre-Christmas tasting. Pours clear very pale yellow with a few bubbles for a head. Nice apple and cinnamon spice aroma, with a bit of rich honey. Big sweet flavor but not cloying, with some dry spices, ripe apples, cinnamon spice. Full bodied, oily and chewy. Warming finish with nicely rounded honey, ripe and gooey apples, sugary apple pie filling, restrained cinnamon accents. Lovely stuff. So, so drinkable.
