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.

JPDIPSO (6094) - Wauwatosa, USA - DEC 19, 2003
Clear bronze color Long tall legs on this as it is spun in the glass. Aromas of candied dates and raisin. The alcohol hits like that of kirsh off of a flambe'. Hints of honey attack the nose. Sweet smooth necture without the alcohol burn I truely expected. Flavors of maple syrup, honey, sorghum and a light oak linger.

nihtila (3430) - 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!

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 (763) - 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 (13339) - 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

Szopeen (472) - POLAND - FEB 2, 2017
Piękna, bursztynowa barwa, oczywiście bez piany, na ścianach pojawiają się "łzy". Aromat może nie powala, jest wyczuwalna nuta alkoholowa, ale bardziej kojarzy się z brandy niż spirytusem. Za to w smaku jest po prostu bajka, spora słodycz, ale nie zamula, świetnie przełamana owocowym finishem. Alkohol w smaku kompletnie nie przeszkadza, ba, miód ten jest bardzo zdradliwy. No i tego ta gęstość... Coś pięknego.
