3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 75cl ceramic. A quite dark golden color mead, oily pour, and still. The aroma has some herbal notes, but it’s mostly rather flowery honey. Alcohol too, but not very pushing. It’s quite warming on the palate, oily and full-bodied. Not very sweet, but far from dry, with a pleasant flowery honey flavor, and also some herbal notes. Warming, honey-tasting finish. Considering the ABV, it’s quite pleasant, but its also a bit low on aroma and flavor levels. Nice though. 120624
