Actually I thought the basswood was a mistake. I thought I had ordered something different. The honey is very dark in color and is also very thick, kind of like sorghum molasses. Flavor is OK but Smiley has so many other varieties that I think are better I don’t recommend this variety.
Carolyn is awesome to work with
Basswood honey is becoming our favorite honey has a wonderful taste with a slight spice we can't decide if it's more like allspice or clove. Regardless it's great
I got used to the Breitsamer linden honey. Yours is different (obviously since it is from Michigan basswood trees, not European linden). I prefer theirs, but it has become awfully expensive. Yours is OK. (My very favorite is chestnut honey, the kind from the Republic of Georgia or from Italy - you don't have chestnut honey.)
Basswood honey is strong flavored but delicious.
