The honey is a beautiful brown color, and it reminds me of caramel. The aroma of the honey was nice, and I could smell a faint likeness to cooked cherries. I noticed that this jar of honey had started to granulate. This doesn’t mean the honey is inferior; in fact, it helps to prove that it is indeed raw. Cherry blossom honey is a slow crystallizer, so the fact that mine had begun to crystallize meant that it was probably not a new harvest, but as I mentioned earlier, this in no way means the honey is bad or spoiled.
As for taste, it has a rather intense cooked cherry mingled with a molasses flavor and ends with soft buttery undertones. Very unusual and tasty!
