SUDS  Episode – Another price point discussion on high dollar and high octane mead from Dansk Mjød and Redstone.  A blind tasting discussion where we only know the price per oz. A nice mix of experience at the table from novice to expert. Shopping by price is the 2nd most important factor in a buying decision. Cosplay with your favorite Viking outfit is encouraged while listening to this episode. We taste and determine if the price/oz IS WORTH IT or NOT WORTH IT.

 

Meaderies:

 

  1. Dansk Mjød Meadery Billund, Region Syddanmark Denmark
  2. Redstone Meadery Boulder, CO

 

 

  1. a) 12:45 Sunshine Nectar 8% ABV carbonated Honey wine with apricot puree ( session Melomel) Redstone Meadery

*** of note, we were told we were drinking from a 375ml can when we actually were drinking a 500 ml can so our prices were off – we said it was $.79/oz $9.99/375ml  and in actuality it is $.60/oz $9.99/500ml.  ****  WORTH IT

 

  1. b) 18:20 Gl. Dansk Mjød 19% ABV Nordic honey wine with ginger and hops added. Dansk Mjød Meadery $1.19/oz $29.99/750ml NOT WORTH IT

 

  1. c) 24:30 Vikingernes Mjød 19% ABV Nordic honey wine with hops added. Dansk Mjød Meadery $1.19/oz $29.99/750ml  WORTH IT
