Gambles Oak litters the the foot hills that
meet the Western slope of the Rockies. Oak is
not known to produce honey , however, once
in a blue moon, when conditions are hot and
dry, there is a sugar-rich, sticky liquid that
seems to magically appear on the oaks leaves.
Honey bees collect it in times of dearth. The
sticky liquid is called honey dew, it is created
by small insects that feed on the leaves of the
hardy oak when they too are in hard times. It
has been over a decade since we have been
able to offer this SouthWestern Oak honey.

This honey is different from the other honey that I have purchased. At first taste the honey presents itself with a bold nutty flavor, but changes in to a mild sweet pecan flavor.

This honey opens up with some big bold oak, nutty flavors, and pecans. It quickly changes over to a mildly sweet rich honey. This is like eating around the pecans in pecan pie.
Really warm flavors on the nose of this honey too. Not something that should be glossed over, sit and smell this for a minute before tasting.
Excellence from the bees!
