Dan McFeeley <mcfeeley at keynet.net> quotes several authors' warnings 
about Eucalyptus honeys and then adds:

>I think a lot of people were influnced by Acton & Duncan's description of
>Australian Eucalyptus honey and turned off to it -- I've read stuff posted
>on the Internet in the past warning meadmakers not to use Eucalyptus honey.
>Too bad, this is obviously a unique honey well suited for mead.

It's not clear to me, but it sounds as if you are confusing Tasmanian 
leatherwood, Eucryphia lucida, with Eucalyptus species.  Similar 
generic epithet (that's biologese for the first half of the name, the 
genus), but, of course, different trees entirely.
