Traditional Mead ? Dry or Semi-sweet

(1/2) > >>

quattlebaum:
So i have made a traditional Tupelo Mead 100% Tupelo honey.  My ? is it finished at 1.000 and i am gonna enter it in a local fair comp and dont know what category to place it in.  It is around 10%ABV and is dry on the mouth however, it taste sweet to me because of the honey. Should i call it a Dry (24A) or a semi-sweet (24B)?

stlaleman:
By the gravity reading its dry, and that is where I would enter it if you think the judges are experienced.

denny:
Read the style guidelines while you drink some.  Enter it as whatever it tastes most like.

stlaleman:
and this is the problem with judging.......

tomsawyer:
1.000 is a far cry from being semi-sweet as far as wine goes, don't know if mead is different but I'd enter it as dry if it just had a hint of sweetness.
