A traditional mead made with orange blossom honey. Aged for 18 months in oak barrels. For the first release in our Miel de Garde line, we used the highest quality orange blossom honey available, then aged it in a neutral American oak barrel for 18 months.

NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 1, 2012
Bottle thanks to theAlum. Gorgeous mead here. Pours gold and still. Nose is super clean and aromatic. Light vanilla but the orange blossom remains incredibly persistent. Fresh and forward, the essence of the honey is here. Light fruit to the nose, super clean without any fermentation issues. On tasting, lush on the palate. Balanced acidity with a medium sweet finish that is never cloying. Incredibly fresh and the essence of orange blossom honey. So much better than the B.Nektar non-BA OB meads. Simply world class.
