Are you looking for a BOLD honey that is not too sweet with a STRONG and Unexpected flavor? The Guinness Beer of honeys, Buckwheat tastes less sweet than wildflower honey, with an earthy malty aroma and rich toasted toffee, molasses flavor. Its color can range from medium brown to almost black, with a reddish tinge. The darker the honey, the higher the buckwheat content that it contains.
