Sweet yet balanced this mead is a phenomenal value. With flavours of preserved apricots, honeycomb and a bit of floral notes, it is complex due to it's barrel aging. A truely unique mead when compared to others. Tasted Nov 2012

Elegant springflower and honeysuckle aromas. Medium-bodied and well-balanced with honeysuckle and mead notes on palate. Nice acidity. Smooth and creamy mouthfeel on a medium-length finish. Paired well with the Thunder Oak Aged Gouda served with fresh honeycomb. Good introduction to mead. Tasted Oct/2012.
