I'm not a connoisseur but I did not really like the smell or taste of this mead. It reminded me of liquid, rotting fruit - though still in the acceptable range. The most enjoyable thing about drinking this mead is the buzz it gives.

this stuff is the best. I will be stocking up for special occasions, it went down a storm!

I have tried several meads over the last few years. I was ecstatic to receive a bottle of Moniack for Yule this year. I have to say I was bitterly disappointed. It was overly sweet (in a sugary way) to the point of wondering if they added honey after the fermentation process was killed by sulfiting it. And speaking of bitter what kind of crap honey was used to begin with is beyond me but the taste of it was absolutely horrid.
I will never by a Mead made by Moniack again and if gifted a bottle will promptly pour it down the toilet where it belongs.

I bought a bottle of this in Scotland while backpacking in 2004, and only opened it up a month or so ago. It was gone in 3 days. Delicious, absolutely delicious. Far better than any mead I've found here in the USA. Many thanks to Master Of Malt for having it, and offering international shipping!

First Scottish mead I've tried, fantastic colour, taste and speedy delivery.

This was the first bottle of mead I ever bought - and the best. I have a bottle of Lindisfarne Mead and some Danish versions (they are mixed with beer) of mead. But Moniack beats them hands down!

Deliciously sweet, rich and smooth. This is a true mead and nothing like the supermarket junk which is a poor substitute and fit for little besides pouring down the sink! Warming for the body and soul.
