[email protected] CBC 2016. Clear straw color, no head. Vanilla, honey, spicy aroma. Flavor has honey, sweet fruits, melons. Vanilla in finish. One of the better meads.

750 bottle. Pours light, clear gold. Aroma of heavy cinnamon and honey. Taste is very sweet honey, with vanilla and spice. Best as a dessert mead paired with food -- it’s sweet enough to carry many desserts.

Smells of dirty jock strap and cinnamon. Tastes like way too much cinnamon mixed with sugar and syrup.

Sickeningly sweet, with what tastes artificial vanilla flavor and too much cinnamon. Undrinkable.

Just super super sweet like liquid french toast. Vanilla extract flavor. Just not a fan.

Pours clear and yellow, no carbonation, like most meads. Aroma is nice cinnamon, hint of vanilla, sweet honey back. Taste follows, slightly medicinal, good burn. Meh.

Stickered: 1510212, I’m guessing it’s from 2012 at some point.
Appearance: This is the lightest mead I’ve ever seen, it pours like water and appears a very pale yellow with great clarity. The color really throws me off.
Aroma: Cinnamon is noticeable along with a floral and sweet honey presence, perhaps some coconut. No presence of vanilla that I can smell. The smell is a bit odd, even a tad rubbery.
Taste: Sweet honey with hints of vanilla and cinnamon are the intro, but the flavor really opens up to a sweet honey base with vanilla overlying, cinnamon sandwiched in between with dry oaky tannins hovering around. The finish is cinnamon, and abrupt, the odd rubbery aroma is here in the flavor, but overall this is nice, sweet and drinkable.
Palate: Light to medium bodied, juicy.
Overall: I think it’s the oak, it’s hard to tell as I’m new to meads, that is adding an unpleasant presence here. Other than that this drinks nicely and I would like to try this fresher, I assume this is from 2012.

Clear, bright, light yellow....no head. Smoky, raw vanilla and alcohol aroma. Sticky sweet vanilla bean syrup, and yes....as other have said, it does have a Salami note to it..spiced meat, smoke. Cinnamon tingle.... Wow...exceptionally smooth for 14%.... Awesome. (in small doses) The only way to ingest more vanilla is by drinking a Yankee Candle.
