Knowing RHH’s fondness for all things melliferous, we have been fortunate to sneak a taste of some wonderful dark and delicious Cuban honey, from an apiary called Apisun. The honey has a deep bronze hue, with those wonderful whiskey fragrances promising buckwheat. However, the liquid is less viscous than most buckwheat honeys, and less overpowering. Hints of thyme and even mint are present along with the usual fresh hay and slight barnyard aroma that buckwheat brings with it–but more refreshing. Like all dark honeys, this one is sure to be full of healing goodness–topically and internally.
Watch this space for more honey reviews. We hope to bring you taste testings of European and other honeys obtained for us by our voyaging friends.
Meanwhile, RHH is waiting impatiently for the day when our own honeybees once again turn out their first litres of fresh wildflower honey for 2014.
