This is a mead wine (fermented honey) aged on bourbon barrels pulled from a whiskey company. We then add fresh vanilla beans to the barrel along with a fresh shaved zest of ripe oranges. The honey wine exctacts the whiskey flavor from these barrels and subtle notes of vanilla and orange.

Poured into snifter glass a pure gold color. Aroma is honey, alcohol and a bit winey. Taste is honey and alcohol. Sweet in the sip and a little alcohol in the finish turned sweeter late in finish. Being of Lithuanian decent I love meads but they are hard to find in my area. This one is closer to what I remember without being to sweet, enjoyed. Available only at the winery in Shamong New Jersey.
