Cunningham (7048) - Halden, NORWAY - APR 11, 2015
A bit hazy copper color. Powerful smooth aroma with honey wax and wood. Quite thick body. And yet easy drinkable. Sweet, but not cloying or sticky. Creamy and oily texture. Balanced honey, dried fruit and wood in the flavor. Some warming alcohol. Nice one.

Marduk (6402) - Reval, ESTONIA - JUL 16, 2014
750ml bottle. Clear dark copper color. No head non expected. Red currant, sweet, juicy notes in aroma. Plums, very faint honey, sweetish, watery taste. Thin and not really interesting.

FatPhil (14021) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 11, 2014
750ml corked glass wine bottle (Dionizos, Radom) - apparently aged 9 years
Lovely soft but dense honey aroma, some slightly perfumey herbal aspects, alas a little alcohol when not pouring from a freshly opened bottle (should have done the rating first time, sigh). Lovely rich cupric amber, flat as expected. Flatish palate, a little watery. Sweet honey present, but not sticky or sugary. Some slight waxiness maybe. Lacking an acidic bite to bring some life to it. Late finish has some nice walnut papers. Was better when freshly opened, so share this with a large group and finish it off, you can get a pretty decent impression of this from 5-7cl.

Palme (4180) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 12, 2014
0.1l ceramic bottle, 2010 model from trade with Eldesmadre. Huge thanks Kuba! Just love these small ceramic bottles! In the glass this is a somewhat cloudy almost chestnut brown colored liquid thing. It looks like it should and it smells fantastic! Like sticking your nose inside a bee hive. So beautifully concentrated and sticky. Sweet dates and honey with a little hay, lots of raisins and some boiled down Coca Cola as well. A lovely nose. In the mouth its lovely gliding, thick and syrupy. Powerful flavors, lots of self written honey and sweetness. Even if its only a 13 percenter, it really brings a superb warming sensation down the throat. A good amount of both banana and date-sweetness found here. Dried almost burned sweet and bitter black raisins found on the outside of buns that has been in the oven? Yeah, you know the taste. Its just such a lovely sipper this. Almost so that I wish I had a big bottle, but I guess its for the best that I dont. 22.01.2014

MicroGrog (303) - FT: Stale Polotmav in Queens, New York, USA - OCT 9, 2012
Notes from 6/12. 5oz-ish pour from a 750ml tall display bottle @ Sunset Grill. My near the bottom of the bottle sample seems a bit darker then some of the other reviews indicate. Old age, lighting, oxidation, probably. A very dark brown with hints of deep maroon. Smells of maple syrup, old wood, & fortified wine. Taste is awesome. Deeply pungent honey & dark fruit, with a mild herbal bitterness on the finish. Brown sugar. Pleasant oxidation. Potent. Feels a bit warmer then 13%, but theres no burn. Saturated & coating(but not quite sticky) texture. Regal. :)
