North Korean Wild Honey

(I posted this on the International luck. So I thought I'd try the General Topics Board.)

I received some North Korean "Sanggul" or natural/wild honey as a gift. I was wondering if anyone could explain to me the difference between this and regular honey. It has a slight alcohol smell to it. The taste is similar to clover honey, but initially, it's very medicinal tasting. The texture is the same as regular honey, but with a lot more crystallization. The label says wild honey contains more nutrients, enzymes, vitamins than regular honey, but I don't know how reliable these labels are.

Basically, since I don't really know anything about honey and even less about North Korean honey, I'm wondering if it's okay to eat, and what are the best ways to eat it (straight, in tea, etc.)? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
