Dominated by 55.5% Trifolium Melilotus (clover), this true monofloral honey deserves its own product category. The aroma begins vegetal and floral with hints of beeswax and freshly cut hay. Afternotes of vanilla and cinnamon are the result of coumarin in the plant tissue. Its low moisture level of 14.1% to 14.6% and 19.7% Cephalanthus (buttonbush) nectar create a buttery, heavy bodied texture. It has a delicate flavor of butterscotch and warm caramel/toffee with faint after tones of beeswax and fresh hay. A Pfund scale of 26mm makes it a“white” honey with a brassy, opaque color.
