Colour: The shades of Chestnut Honey vary from dark Baltic Amber to walnut wood and mahogany red.

Flavour: In line with its pungent and intense scent, Chestnut Honey aroma gives to the palate a characteristic smell, recalling a bitter chemical sensation, mostly tannic and phenolic. It presents a pleasant balance of sweet and bitter notes.
