Sweet honey aroma, with lots of spice notes. Very evident honey and spices in the flavor, clean, well done. This is a dessert mead, nice and sweet.

Bottle, dated 12/21/12. Pours a still, hazy straw yellow. Aroma is sweet, big cinammon and vanilla, apple cider and cinnamon sugar cookie. Taste is big cinnamon, very sweet, with a floral, vanilla, honey finish. No carbonation, smooth with medium body.

Well this is aptly named. You can taste the honey, the vanilla and the cinnamon. The flavor works pretty well. This may be the best I’ve had from them, but it still doesn’t rank as a high meadery for me.

Bottle shared with a friend. Pours a near hazy copper with no sign of carbonation. The aroma is big vanilla beans, honey crystals, some cinnamon, and maybe a hint at some wood. Taste is sweet and a little bit spice forward. Thick, sweet, sugary mouthfeel. I liked this much more than I anticipated.

My absolute favorite mead from Redstone. Aroma smells strongly of honey and vanilla. Flavor is mild honey (alfalfa and wildflower) thickened by vanilla and balanced with spicy cinnamon at the finish. Balanced toward the sweet side.

Bottle @ Redstone. Golden pour. Nice cinnamon aroma. Vanilla, sugar cookie dough, honey, and caramel. Spicy cinnamon flavor up front. Lots of sweet vanilla. Tastes of sugar cookie dough as well. Plenty of honey, too.

adnielsen (9090) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 1, 2013
Bottle @ home. Pours a pretty clear golden appearance with no head. Huge cinnamon roll, vanilla, white fruity, sweet dessert, fairly spicy aroma. Moderately sweet, big vanilla, cinnamon, rich cinnamon roll frosting, sweet honey flavor. Really nice drink to share at Christmastime with relatives.

Bottle from State Line Liqours- catching up on old ratings from Oct/Nov 2012 timeframe. This is one of my favorite styles, but I’m not seeing a lot of folks doing it well, unfortunately. This one had a nasty menthol thing happening, that just shouldn’t be there. Disappointing.

It smells just as it should for what it contains. The honey and vanilla stand out prominently with a hint of cinnamon to spice up the flavor. Not that I am an expert on alcohol but in my limited experience this is the best alcoholic beverage I have ever had the pleasure to imbibe. I have had some of the best beers around, not many but some very high rated brews, and I would consider myself a "beer guy" but this meade is where it’s at. The flavor sits with you long after you have swallowed the final gulp and it only makes you want more. I have requested that my not so local liquor emporium bring this in for me and hopefully they decide to keep a stock.
