Description

The New Quay Honey farm have teamed up with the Welsh Penderyn whisky distillery to produce a different take on their Heather Mead. Part of a limited run of 400 bottles, this mead is matured in ex-bourbon casks that were used to mature Penderyn whisky.

In this mead, the strong aromas of the heather honey find a worthy challenger in the strong oak and vanilla flavours of the bourbon cask. Starting with a slightly subdued heather smell and a gentle whisky note, it blossoms out almost immediately into a sweet and caramelly taste that then fades into a lightly woody finish, a slight heat and hints of vanilla. Salty cheeses might bring out the caramel note more, while its intensity could prove a good match to rich and spicy desserts.
