Greetings,

Does anyone know of any resource for honey that performs what Wine Spectator does for wines?  Anything beyond state fairs and local newspaper & beek org awards?  If so, please post info.  If not, there really should be.

Cheers,
Dane

I agree with you on this one. With all the different aromas and flavors there should be some recognition for really good honey.

Perhaps someday!!!

Really enjoy your photos and I am also trying to figure out how to post photos. Just got a digital camera and learning it all right now. Soon I will post some pictures.

Take care
Annette

Hey Dane.  Now that is a good idea.  Wonder if there is.  I bet your honey is so diversified with taste that you could win all categories  Wink  I am so happy for you and the amount of honey that you are getting in your first year, yeah!!!!  Have a wonderful day, greatest of life.  CIndi

Thank you kindly ladies! Smiley  It would be really great if there were such a magazine/resource.  What are the most popular tasting contests (regional, local, etc.,) that are currently available?  The Oregon State fair is going right now.

Annette ~> I'm happy you liked the photos I've posted. Congrats on getting your digi!  Please let me know if I can be of any assistance (just PM me with any q's).

Cindi ~> you're too kind!  I do humbly submit that the first honey of the season I harvested truly could win some awards.  Impressions on the taste have ranged from fruity to roses (& combinations thereof) but the consistent reaction has been that it is very, very good, with the great flavour stronger and lasting longer than any honey previously experienced.  It's really wild and I'm going to make you try some!  The subsequent harvests have also been quite good but I would just rate them as that - good light honey.  Not boring like clover at all but not spectacular like this first wetland's blackberry honey.  I'm going to have all my hives ready to go so I (God willing) get loads of that blackberry honey next year!

Perhaps we should amp up the honey exchange and start our own taste judging?  We could do it with small samples and have a panel of judges - exchange reviews for honey.  I'd be willing to send a bunch of small samples out just to get other's impressions.  Might be fun. Smiley

Cheers,
Dane
