aghhh, well had a 1/2 bottle left over after bottling, so opened it up and offer the wife and 2 neighbors a sample telling them it was just bottled and will get much better with aging. i think its amazing, even though i know it young and needs aging. wife hated it made bad faces, neighbor said it smelled horrible and waste of time. lol i think its great and after 6 months to a year in bottle, they wont be included when i start cracking them open

Try 6 weeks. Unless something went wrong, it should be perfect. It ages really fast. Unless you tried to up the gravity.

I am a beginner with mead. Does this recipe age well? Or is it meant to be drank right away?

It ages really well. Sure, it is drinkable in a few months, but after a year or longer, it is great.
