2013 World Mead Challenge Reviews

Montezuma  Sparkling Mead
90 points
Best Buy
Clear with a very faint straw cast. Pleasant aromas of honeyed pear and plum, white grape sorbet, and grilled peach with a crisp, petillant fruity, light body and a tangy grapey finish. A fun off-dry sparkling mead.

Pale yellow straw color. Lively aromas of nutmeg, cola, cinnamon, potpourri,and carrot cake with a lively sweet medium body and zesty ginger, lime sorbet, and herbal honey finish. A delicious dessert in a glass that is sure to please.

Bright yellow gold color. Aromas of peppercorns and spiced nuts with a soft, fruity sweet medium body and a nice waxy clover honeycomb, cherry, and earth accented finish. Very nice purity and style.
Montezuma  Sweet Traditional Honey Mead
88 points
Best Buy
Pale silvery straw color. Aromas of white grape, banana taffy, and tropical fruit salad with a fruity sweet light-to-medium body and a tangy, apple sauce, honeycomb, and bubblegum accented finish. Not a lot of honey character but sure to please as an sweet sipper.
