Well if you know its good and its only about 60% of the usual price you pay, then why wait.....

Worst case scenario ? you use it with melomels and metheglyns.....

They are not very specific are they? Some bakers honey is from wax seperators that heat up the honey and darken it. No reason it cant make a good dark mead, you could even cook it and do a Bochet. WVMJ

If you've specifically tasted that honey and like it I would say go for it. If not, and it's the price that's pulling you I would go to Dutch Gold's website. They sell bulk from their site and they have more variety. I myself am using their wildflower honey which I bought in a 60lb bucket and paid the same price (plus shipping) as the one you listed.

And you are happy with it? Is it overly processed? I think I've become spoiled with my local raw stuff. Though I might keep it in mind if the supply gets low.

The meads I've made with it haven't gotten to the point where they are really ready to be imbibed so I can't really say what it's like in the final product. That being said, it is more processed than local raw honey (hasn't crystallized at all in the gallon containers I split it up into) and while it doesn't taste as good as most of the local stuff I've tried, it is still pretty good. The last caveat, as Fatbloke said, I use it for melomels and metheglyns. I don't think I would use it in a traditional.

That's a good point, fruit is goin to hide most if the honey taste anyways.
