Hello everyone,
I have some questions about a mead I recently tasted. It was called Dunrattys from Ireland. It smelled and tasted strongly of alcohol. Is this usual for commercial mead? Do home made meads have a strong alcohol taste?

I want to make mead for myself, but if mead usually has a strong alcohol taste, then I'll find a lower proof recipe.

Thanks,
Scott

You can make your mead as strong or as weak you want; that's the great thing about doing it yourself. A 'hot' alcoholic taste can also be interpreted as being too young.
