Chestnut honey is rich in fructose and remains liquid for a long time.
The colour goes from a dark amber to almost black. It has a strong penetrating
aroma of wood, and those who know tannin will recognise it in traces.
The flavour is similar to the fragrance, initially pungent, then decidedly
bitter. Chestnut honey is rich in pollen grains, which the male chestnut
flower produces in great quantity. This pollen, impalpable, spreads everywhere,
even in the nectar collected by the bees.
