Help me source a delicious yet terribly obscure honey!

I recall with aching longing the taste of a honey that is only sourced from wild hives up in the Atlas Mountains in Morocco. Help me find it, or something like it, in the US.

When I was in Fez several years back I purchased a quantity of carob honey, as described in this NYTimes article
. This was the loveliest honey I ever tasted, with a deep toffee-like flavor that was slightly bittersweet. Unfortunately it was accidentally discarded. I've been trying to find another source for it in the US, but so far I've only found one importer
, which appears to no longer be operational. Searching for carob honey gave me only carob recipes with honey, which is very much not what I want.
Ideally there would be some Middle Eastern market in the US that stocks it or could be willing to order it from the one market that sells it in Fez, but if not I am willing to try substitutes. Has anyone here tasted anything similar, preferably accessible in the NYC area? Is my only option to brush up on my lackluster Arabic and call up the Moroccan merchant myself?
