Frolicking Fig (Anniversary Release)

Frolicking Fig (Anniversary Release)

Full bodied, smooth, and semi-sweet this mead has an aroma that layers figs, light toast and spice from a medium-dark honey blend trailing into a warming sweetness. Wood and Rye, from several months aging in a Doc Porter’s Rye barrel, further enhance the spice in the aroma. The flavor starts with deep figs bringing rich holiday confections then fades into subtle spice and honey. The wood contributes a light dryness ,subtle vanilla and rye spice, for even more complexity. This mead is a stellar aperitif/digestif instead of brandy, cognac, port or sherry with its complex and warm finish. 12.8% ABV
