harrisoni (18578) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2014
Bottle thanks to SarkyNorthener. Thanks Martin. Intense sweet and perfumed heather aroma. Some nougat and heather aroma. Heather is like an old woman’s bouquet. It’s ok in the mouth. I mean hugely sweet. Then the heather is quite strong too. Light yet sweet. Dry heather yet almost sickly sweet on the teeth. Odd but quite intriguing mead.

Bottle from Sarkynorthener cheers Martin; this is my first intentional mead rating the other was a style change, dusty light golden syrup pour, intense heather honey aroma on pour, taste is sweet with big heather honey tastes a bit like what pollen smells like, a bit cough syrup but a pleasant tasting experience.

Beershine (5224) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 11, 2011
Mini-bottle from the Cardiff castle :) Viscous. Honeyed aroma. Very smooth. Thick and silky. Sweet but not cloying. Just really delish.

3.8
Oakes (17664) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 25, 2010
The aroma is bright woody mead with subtle floral accents. The start is sweet, before moving into a drier alcoholic finish. The floral heather notes and cool honey sugars emerge well into the aftertaste, providing a pleasant coda. Good balance. A mead lover’s mead.

Blond color, just a shade lighter than the regular Mead. The aroma shows honey, a variety that is more floreal, almost with vanilla notes. Very syrupy mouthfeel, even if the body is medium thick; the honey flavor is very strong, a perfumy variety, with strong wax too, very sweet. The final, for once among Meads, has a true honey trail (acacia honey). Extreme in its sweet/flowery/soapy character, but somehow it’s what is expected from a Mead. Good.
