I personally think that sugar(raw or white from the sugar cane) becomes incredibly harsh... I would use honey and try to make it more of a metheglin.

hey thanks for sharing the recipe. I tried your recipe and the result was awesome. I just had to made it more sweeten as per my taste. One more thing I would like to add is that if u have this wine with Granada Cigar or buy cigar of your choice, it would increase the aroma of it.
