Raw Chestnut Honey
Characteristics of Chestnut Honey
Our Raw Organic Chestnut honey is the classic mountain honey. Dark in color, ranging from deep amber to an almost glassy black with yellowish hues, it has a bold aromatic profile and an equally complex mysterious flavor. There is a slight tannic taste due to tannin in the tree. The flavor is very unique and not very sweet.
Flavor: Complex. Very mild sweetness. Tangy with spicy undertones followed by a slightly bitter aftertaste.
Aroma: Very aromatic, of tannin.
Color: Amber shades. Depth varies by harvest.
