3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 35cl. A clear one with an oily pour. Headless and still. It’s quite herbal and spiced on the nose, the elderflower more or less overpowers everything else, even the honey which is normally not easy too hide. It’s full-bodied, lightly warming and oily on the palate, with lots of elderflower in the flavor. Honey sweetness too of course, and some faint citrus peel hints. More on the orange side than the lemon side. Some coffee bean hints too. Long finish. In a strange way the coffee and orange hints makes me think more of Christmas than of spring which I normally connects with elderflower. Anyway, it’s a really wonderful mead. Pity I only have a small bottle. 150712
