jakel and Avtar, I don't mean to pick on you, because I've heard it many times, but the philosophy about making up for low quality honey with fruit or spices cuts as much mustard with me me as thinking you can make a good beer with crappy malt because you've got good hops. Quality in, quality out. Low quality in...
It may be decent, but it won't be as good as you can do, and I'm out of time in my life for mead that isn't as good as I can make it. There are too many other phenomenal things out there to drink. YMMV.
