Pretty good feedback. I've never had mead, but have two 1 gallon batches in the works so I don't know how sweet they are supposed to be, but jaom is pretty sweet from my understanding. So for a pretty basic recipe, sounds like it went well. I am sure you are right, it will be even better in a year.
On a side, next year I'm going to put something in the FOAM cup. I wanted to this year, but never had time to make anything.
