Default Mead

I am looking for a GOOD mead recipe. I have never had mead, at least to my knowledge, so I would not know a good one from a bad one. Is there a good store mead brad I could try to see if I would like it?
Thank you in advance.

I posted something a few mins ago asking about a site on how to make wine. I was provided with www.gotmead.com and from what I have looked at so far is what you are looking for. Check it out!

If you like ginger I highly recommend the Barkshack Ginger Mead recipe in Papazian's TCJOHB.

I've made 3 batches so far.

Traditional meads with simply honey, water, and yeast can yield a variaty of flavors, depending on the types of honey and yeast you use. Orange blossom honey with a neutral wine yeast fermented to semi-sweet is popular. Personally I like clover fermented with a combo of champagne and d-47 to dryness. Decide what you like in a wine, and then go from there.

I agree that redstone is the best commercial example I've found so far, and they have a good amount of variatals to choose from, so you should try different types. The black raspberry necter is a SWMBO-slayer
