Sent this to a competition on Oct. 8th 2011 and it scored a 31.3 some of the comments are mixed below:
Aroma: mild honey and level dates, alcohol warmth in nose; soft honey and dates in balance with tart hint
Flavor: semi dry moderately acidic, vinous warmth, low honey characteristic; soft honey then lots of date flavor, strong in alcohol flavor and warmth light honey notes; fruity honey flavor, some tannins and high alcohol warmth.
many of the overall impressions were not enough honey flavor to much alcohol.
