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.
This is a special honey that is appreciated by people who do not like very sweet tastes.
