B. Nektar’s latest mead, Necromangocon is a mix between mango and pepper. While the mead is certainly sweet, the subtleness of the pepper helps balance out the flavor, making for an enjoyable and very drinkable mead. Necromangocon has qualities of a cider — it’s lighter, sweet and has a slight carbonation. The mango comes through strong, as you can definitely pick out the flavor, but it’s by no means over the top. This might very well be my favorite mead yet.
