COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Named after one boisterous Scottish wench who successfully defended the Scottish Castle of Dunbar during a five-month siege by William Montague, the Earl of Salisbury. Grown in the British Isles for over five hundred years and used by herbalists since the middle ages, the black currants in this dessert mead pay tribute to Black Agnes, our kind of girl.

From bottle at Dangerous Bottleshares Aaron & DBH returns. Pours deep blood red with no head. Aroma of nice wild honey, black currants, sweet vinous notes, fruit concentrate and vanilla. The taste is sweet and elegant. Easy drinkable with lots of honey and black currants. Vanilla, red sweets, almost toffee like sweetness as well and a slight tart vinous end. impossible to dislike.

SarpinosBoss (11) - Kansas City, Kansas, USA - DEC 29, 2016
My only complaint is that I need a bigger bottle next time. Fruity and smooth like all their wines. This one really softened and opened up with a little time in the glass. Taste was so smooth I never wanted to swallow.

Bottle shared by Matt Waite. Pours deep maroon color with no evidence of effervescence. Nose is huge honey and blackberry, alcohol. Mouthfeel is very viscous, honey and blackberries explode in your mouth. I would have loved to pour this over pancakes!
