Kinsale Mead Co., Atlantic Dry Mead - White Port Barrel AgedRegular price €35.00
The Kinsale Mead Company have recently revived the ancient art of mead-making with flair and finesse in equal measure. To build on the success of their established favourites—Atlantic Dry and Wild Red—Kate and Denis Dempsey have begun to add a new dimension with the use of wine and port barrels for finishing their fine meads.
The White Port Barrel Aged limited edition of the Atlantic Dry style is a richer, more spicy drink than its parent.
It has the same delicate character of flowers, honey and citrus on the nose, but even there there's a hint of the fuller, more mellow personality of this limited edition.
The citrus notes round out into apricots and spice on the palate, with toasty, nutty flavours that balance sweetness and zesty acidity.
