Trazo Mead Dry Honey Wine Avocado
I treasure Trazo meadery for brewing meads from interesting, unusual single source honeys. Trazo Meadery Trazo Mead Dry Honey Wine Avocado (14.0% alcohol by volume) is a dry, still, standard mead made with avocado honey. The aroma is earthy with a hint of avocado and a green or herbal tea smell seasoned with honey, alcohol, and a trace of fruit. It pours brilliant copper with good reflectance and a clear, well defined meniscus. A swirl of the glass produces long, thin legs. The flavor starts mildly honey sweet and goes dry as a bone on the finish. the honey's avocado character suggests some smokiness, woodiness, and a light savoryness. The alcohol is smooth and not hot or harsh. The mead has a medium plus body. Drink this delightful mead with grilled meat, chicken or seafood. I rate it 83.
