This was the best tasting tupelo I have ever had the pleasure of trying. The texture is smooth, velvety, and has a wonderful buttery finish. When I first saw this item for sale, it was difficult to justify such an expensive purchase. However, I have zero regrets and have even ordered more! Fair warning though... after trying the best, it's difficult to go back to anything else. I haven't found anything that even comes close to the quality of this.
Tupelo Honey Gold Reserve

Unbelievably amazing! My husband and I were listening to "Southern Girl" by Tim McGraw where he sings about Tupelo honey. We didn't even know if Tupelo honey was a real thing, so we Googled it! It piqued our interest, and I decided to purchase the Gold Reserve as a birthday present for my husband. The first thing we noticed (after the impressive packaging and beautiful color) was the absolute smoothness! It's not sticky, it's not thick, it's not thin. It just melts on the tongue... like something we've never experienced! My husband enjoys a spoonful every morning. I tried a bit with cheese, but, frankly, I would rather just savor a small spoonful! The flavor is indescribable... like a spoonful of heaven! Thanks to Savannah Bee Company for an outstanding product. And, of course, how fortunate for us humans to have honey bees and Tupelo trees!

Expensive but worth it! I am not a lover of honey in general but after trying the Tupelo Reserve, I love it. The taste is very smooth, not grainy like some honey and it blends so well with many foods. Unfortunately, available for only a short time each year!

We are so enjoying this delicious and delightfully flavored honey. We paired it with an hor d'oevres tray last night - crackers, sharp cheeses and grapes and it was well received. I wish it was available also as the honeycomb. The packaging is very attractive and we all enjoyed reading the enclosed description of the honey collection process.

The more I explore various types of honey, the clearer it becomes that honey is like wine or fine tea. Each honey has its own subtle flavors. Tupelo honey from one grove may taste quite different from tupelo honey from another. This honey has a wonderful, delicate floral flavor all its own. Lately, instead of taking a gift of wine to dinner parties, I take a tall bottle of Tupelo Gold Reserve. Everyone loves it including my family and me.

When I ordered the Tupelo Honey Gold Reserve I was honestly skeptical that it would be either better than regular tupelo honey or be worth the price. I was wrong! It exceeded my expectations -- the taste is refined, delicate, and dare I say sensual. I will definitely order more in the future and highly recommend to anyone considering this purchase. Thank you.

Gold Reserve does. not. disappoint. I am no honey connoisseur, but I think honey's yummy and ever since discovering SavBee I keep a varied stock (no more mess with honey pumps!). I placed several orders putting the Gold in my cart and then removing it because I just couldn't spend that on honey. My curiosity and instinct finally overrode and I got my bottle of Gold this evening. Ohmygoodnessgracious! It is amazing. This is as close to eating the smell of the sweetest flower as I imagine is possible. If I down this bottle while there's still a supply in stock, I will not hesitate to re-order. What a total treat...amazing. honey.

Truly intense, wonderful flavor that is too good to do anything with except eat on biscuits (or off the spoon)!

I have to admit how nervous I was at spending that much on a bottle of honey. Now I'm nervous that your supply will be gone before I can order another one. I actually find it difficult to put into exact words what a fine experience this bottle is. Before I go any further, I absolutely must stop and say THANK YOU for sharing this! I'm sitting here with seventeen different (monofloral) varieties of honey on my desk (so I can taste them whenever I like), and roughly half of them live up to the descriptions that were given of them, but your special batch of Tupelo is every bit as fantastic as you claim. What an absolute gift from God to have something so sinfully delicious actually be good for us! For those of you who love to taste of the finer things of life, don't you dare let this one pass you by.

My mother and I have always loved the Tupelo Honey, ever since I was a kid---it always brought back fond memories of sneaking into the pantry and taking a giant spoonful without having my mother catch me or my dad getting to finish off the bottle first. So when I saw the Gold Reserve for sale, I knew my mother would love it as a Valentine's gift. And we adore it. The presentation was beautiful, the bottle is exquisite, and it feels so much more special knowing that it holds such sentimental value than anything else. We have both agreed, though, that we are only to use it for special occasions, to make it last. We did, however, take inaugural tastes, and it was even better than the original.

I purchased the Tupelo Honey Gold Reserve as a gift to me. It was delivered today, and of course I immediately made a cup of tea to try it out. All I have to say is, I am now officially spoiled by the smooth, sweet, texture and taste of this liquid gold! I am hiding this in my home office so that no one pilfers any of it! Call me selfish, but do you blame me? So delicious - I love it!

This honey is exquisite. The bottle is beautiful and the the top of the bottle is sealed with Tupelo beeswax. It has a wax seal imprinted with a bee on the neck of the bottle that is a nice touch. The honey also comes with a round, wooden box that looks like an The flavor is smooth and decadent. Not too sweet but just perfect. I received my bottle as a gift and I love it!

It is not inexpensive. It is, however, the most unique and best flavored honey I have ever tasted. I highly recommend. I did buy three bottles to enjoy over the holidays. Merry Christmas

My wife and I just received a bottle (#120), and it is the finest honey that we have ever tasted! The packaging is wonderfully made, and the honey itself looks like sunshine in a bottle. The flavor of the honey itself is intensely floral and truly remarkable, like flowers squared. It's truly a work of art, and the care and craftsmanship from start to finish is clearly apparent. We would like to thank you for sharing this exceptional honey. Your work (and that of the bees) is greatly appreciated!
