My guess is the honey did not shine. It was all boiled. When you boil honey you lose all the delicate honey flavor. If you bring it up to 150 F and just keep it there for 10 min AND KEEP IT COVERED you will retain ALOT more honey flavor. I have primed with honey after using 3 lbs of honey in a beer. None of the honey went above 150 F and it was dectable in the finish but still very subtle. If you are boiling it it's pretty much gone.
