I suspect that not much processing has been done yet, because there were more than a few "bee parts" in the must. At least I hope they were bee parts and not roach parts
Time will tell.
That suggests that you acquaintance may have been delivering to a blending and/or bottling plant, plus the likelihood that the honey had only had a course filter if at all.
When honey is cheap, I say its got to be tried but equally you have to try and think on why its cheap and whether the story/reasons etc stack up.
Sounds to me that its highly probable that its good and you got a bargain. After all, if its was gonna connected to anyone trying to produce fraudulent honey, anyone involved other than yourself would be shifty as hell. The potential for a massive $$$ margin would suggest that they wouldn't chance using anyone who might be looking for a quick buck.....
So IMO, good on ya for what sounds like an excellent result....
