Moniack Mead Reviews

Very sweet

This was very sweet compared to some other meads I had in the US and a bit too heavy for me. Maybe a standalone dessert drink chilled in small amounts but not as light as fermented meads I've had before.

11th June 2018

Still probably the best mead I've drunk.

Just fantastic; I've tried as many meads as I can get my hands on as a viking and role-play enthusiast and I keep coming back to this as being silky sweet but never sickly, fine and not too sticky, good percentage and a lovely scent.
Buy it.

Excellent

First time I have ever tried Mead and it is absolutely delicious. Very nice honey taste and very smooth. Will definitely order this one again.

My second favourite Mead.

This stuff is how it should be done. Crucially, this is not a Honey Wine (regular wine flavoured with honey), but an honest to goodness 'water, honey, yeast, time' Mead.

It's definitely sweeter than any wine, but not as sickly sweet as one might expect. Definitely worth trying if you're curious about this most ancient of drinks (also makes a cracking Wedding present, given the origins of the term Honeymoon....)

And yes, second favourite. My true favourite is dashed hard to come by though!

You mead this in your life.

Found this originally in Canada on the day of my wedding. I bought six bottles to toast the ceremony with. Thanks to Master of Malt I can now remember that day well having my senses onslaught with its sweet goodness and rich notes. It's in my top three favourite meads of all time.

Sumptuous honey drInk

A beautifully rich, bitter sweet drink, I absolutely adore this with ice.

10th July 2017

Delicious

My husband loved it as an Xmas gift so I'm treating him to some more for his birthday!

Amazing

I'm normaly tea only. But I tried it at witchfest uk 2016. And I love it. Its my first and they set the bar high. As I tried others since and nothing compares to Moniack Mead. Keep up the good work. Brightest blessings to you

Excellent Mead!

Better than anything else I've had here in the States. Lovely sweetness!

16th August 2016

I love this Mead!

This was the best mead I'd ever had. I really wish it wasn't sold out right now.
Dear Master's of Malt, Please order more ! I don't want to buy the smaller bottle!

Best Mead Ever

That is all.

13th June 2015

Not my kind of thing.

A little disappointed by this. I bought it because I had never tried mead before but it's far too sweet for me and also has an odd sharpness that I wasn't expecting. It has grown on me since my first sip and I'm sure I'll finish the bottle, but on the whole, it's just not my cup of tea.

31st March 2015

Not bad.

This taste very good, and will go good for dinner.

15th January 2015

Ehhh.

As meads go, this is rich, sweet, and suitably heady. However, there were also strong notes of hibiscus/flowers and anise/licorice, both of which I highly dislike. For the person that enjoy these, good; for those like me who do not, undrinkable.

14th December 2014

Loved it

Have wanted to try Mead for a long time, found some of this in an LCBO in Ontario Canada. Absolutely loved it. A very slight burn and warmth in the tummy but nice and sweet on the tongue

27th November 2014

Just what I meaded :)

Never tasted Mead before but this was a pleasant surprise ! Great honey flavours, sweet but not too sweet, and nice warming feeling in the tum.
I will definitely be back for more soon. Full marks from me !

The Only Mead Worth Drinking.

I stumbled upon this hidden gem of Scotland while traveling, and it has frankly ruined me for other meads. Unlike the weak, pale yellow meads that the US offers, Moniack is similar to a port wine in color and viscosity. I have had few occasions to import it to the US but I have considered it well worth the shipping.

14th June 2014

the best

Moniac among the vast campers I camp with is known as the best mead. Other meads so far don't come close and I am a connoisseur of meads, being aquanted with lyme bay, lindisfarne and lurghashalls lovely blends aswell as cornish and various others.

9th May 2014

More!

I'd never tasted mead before, so i can't say how this compares to others. But i love it, even though i don't really like regular wine.

8th May 2014

Didn't really enjoy it.

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.

19th April 2014

fantastic

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

Moniack Mead - A Canadian Perspective

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.

26th December 2012

Very nice

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!

Scottish mead

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

31st May 2012

Better than any of the other

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!

4th April 2011

moniack mead

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.
