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.

JStax (3823) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - MAY 11, 2014
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.

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.
