COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It has very rich specific fragrance due to the addition of raspberries and wild rose to nectar honey.

1 litre of Półtorak style mead contains 720 g of natural honey. By comparison, the Dwojniak style of mead contains 610g/L of honey; the Trojniak contains 420g/L and the Czworniak contains 320g/L.

Półtorak mead matures for several years to achieve full clarity. In time its rich aroma hides a high content of alcohol (16%) and acidity forming the finest liquor there is.

Steve_0 (3745) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 17, 2012
Bottle at the Colorado Mead Tasting ’12, courtesy of Armin. Thanks Man! Pour is deep copper with no head and good legs. Raisins, spiced rum, honey, figs, a touch of raspberry, and maple syrup in the aroma. Taste is sweet banana, raisins, bourbon, a touch of acid, maple syrup, wood, and light cocoa. Syrupy mouthfeel with no carbonation. Great mead!

JtanK (546) - Kraków, POLAND - JUN 19, 2017
Deep, sweet aroma of honey, liqueur, raspberry. Very intense, sweet flavor of honey mixed with some tart/acidic fruity touches, beyond that very mild wood, spice and alcohol. Super full, thick and sticky body. God damn is it tasty.

Sample from bottle. Clear amber colour, no head. Strong aroma of honey, raisins, berries, plums, some red fruits, light alcohol. Taste is heavy sweet, honey, raisins, dried fruits, plums, light toffee, ripe apples. Full body, syrupy, thick, sticky texture, flat carbonation. Warming and sweet fruity finish. Excellent mead, very complex and viscous.

nihtila (3603) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 10, 2017
Bottle at Craigs. Pours thick amber. Nose is supersweet, honey, faint raspberries, sherry. Taste is loads of honey, sherry-like sweetness, quite rich and has something going on - not only sweet. In its own unique style it is very nice. Treat it like dessert wine - meaning it goes extremely well with blue cheese!

4.3

UPDATED: MAR 10, 2017 Bottle at Craig’s. Pours clear red with no head. Aromas of light fruit, wood, honey. Taste is more like a dessert wine than a mead. Lots of depth. Good gear.

S_Side_Smitty (766) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - FEB 24, 2017
Pours deep amber and crystal clear with no head. Clings very nicely to the glass. Aroma is initially very much like a nice vintage port with rasins and dried figs. There’s also a hint of oaky vanilla in the aroma. Taste is deep dark honey with sassafrass and mellowed dark fruits. Wow this is nice. You can taste the age. Son, this is Churchillian in every way. My FIRST perfect score!

Christian (13605) - Odense, DENMARK - FEB 21, 2017
Chestnut colour with no head. Intense vineous sherry-like aroma with dried fruit, walnuts, wood, oxidation and honey. Sweet and intense flavour of fruit and nuts, like a thick, sweet dessert sherry, but with obvious overtones of honey. Outstanding
