World Mead Challenge Reviews

Stolen Harvest 2020 Ginger Peach Mead
90 points
$34
Straw green color. Aromas and flavors of blueberry and peach cobblers and cinnamon-ginger gelato with a supple, soft, fruity sweet medium body and an intricate, medium-long finish displaying notes of lemon hibiscus whole herb tea and pink peppercorn. A very pleasant and peachy Mead with nicely balanced sweetness and herbal notes.
Awards: 2021 Best Mead
Honeywood  Blackberry Mead
88 points
$14
Sunburst color. Aromas and flavors of pickled scallion, cranberry sauce, and elderflower with a supple, tangy, moderately sweet medium body and a smooth, delightful, medium-long finish with overtones of orange blossom honey, stone fruit gummies, white peppercorn, and hibiscus. A nice berry-kissed Mead that is sure to please after dinner.
Honeywood  Traditional Mead
87 points
$14
White gold color. Aromas and flavors of pickled garlic, pineapple herb shrub, and green walnut with a silky, bright, moderately sweet light-to-medium body and a smooth, delightful, medium-long finish with elements of honey baked peaches, paw paw, and orange chamomile tea. A curious mix of sweet and alliaceous notes keeps this interesting.

87 points
$32
Dark copper color. Aromas and flavors of butter roasted nut, spiced figs and dried stone fruits, brandied tamarind and dates, and soy sauce honey vinaigrette with a satiny, bright, moderately sweet medium-to-full body and a tingling, compelling, medium-long finish revealing notes of chestnut honey, honey baked peaches, and maple syrup. A fine Mead for Bourbon fans.

Brick red color. Aromas and flavors of cherry pie filling and white grape skins with a supple, soft, fruity medium body and a refreshing, medium finish with notes of cherry skin and pit and nuts. A pleasing berry laden Mead for sipping or cocktails.
