I just bottled a 1 gallon batch of spiced apple that I dont care for. I put several cloves in a tea bag and left it in the must for 3 days. I also added a cinnamin stick for a couple weeks. Now all I can taste is clove with a hint of apple!! So my question is do I:
1)Take the obvious approach and let it age 6 months and try a bottle ect.
2)Blend it with another wine (which one?)
3)Give it away at Christmas
I will go with the majority.
Have you thought about sweetening it up? Turn it into an aperitif to accompany a cheeseboard and dried fruit at the end of a meal?

another option..

sulphite, sweeten and bottle it.. Stick it in a corner and forget about it for a year

Dont bottle let it bulk age. Time will smooth the cloves. Like what Wade said maybe blend it or try a f-pac.
I made the same mistake with my Ancient Orange Mead, well that and I used wine yeast! Ok 2 mistakes on that batch!!!!
Its bottled and in the cellar hoping someday it will get better, havent tried it in about 5 months so maybe Ill try another bottle soon.
I will put that on the list of bottles we are going to open when I get there.:) Man are we going to get loaded.:b
