Woodland Honey (Limited Edition)
Two Stars 2020.
Wonderful deep amber, really inviting. Really tangy, with lots of vibrancy. Big honey flavour with no particular characteristics but this works in its favour and makes it stand out - it has a true and very special honey taste.
An unusual colour in the jar - deep, almost a deep green but on the spoon, it is a lovely runny golden brown. To taste, this is a delight, clean, complex with hint of pine mixed with herbaceous notes. Great balance and a long comfortable finish.
A pleasing mid umber colour honey with a woody hive aroma. The texture is quite viscous with impressive smoothness on the tongue. There is a fine spread of suspended particles, perhaps wax and pollen, which add to the mouth feel. The initial flavour is lightly woody which develops to caramel tones and at all stages a strong sweetness. Altogether a very pleasant tasting experience.
