Blame Canada by ClubGonzo, Mead, 13% ABV.
I really like the looks of this one: it’s crystal clear and it has a lovely medium copper colour.
Sweet and strong aroma of honey and maple syrup with caramel and brown sugar in the back.
The flavour is complex and strong, with pure honey and maple syrup in the front. Again caramel and brown sugar stays in the back, along with dark dried fruits and fortified wine. It’s quite alcoholic, but not overly so. It’s heavy sweet, the flavours are long-lasting and it has a lovely syrupy texture and full body.
Conclusion: A very nice mead. The maple syrup was a really good idea, it really adds a layer of complexity to the flavour profile. I’ll try this with pancakes sometime.
