The bouquet is strong, chemical, almost medicinal, with a distinct trace of linden flower aroma, followed by notes of incense and resin. In the mouth, it is refreshing, with a taste of menthol, sage, and lime, finished with a very persistent aroma, balanced between citrus and bitter. Lime honey owes its bouquet to a complex spectrum of 100 different volatile aromatic compounds.
