Is unfiltered honey always best?

I have often read about the evils of filtered honey.
Dutch Gold honey is filtered but it has been highly regarded in the past for mead making.
Can you shed some light on this subject?

Dazed and confused,

We will definitely discuss that! Short answer though, filtration (straining out bee parts etc) is not so much of a problem as microfiltration (straining out everything including the pollen).
