I don't know about specific honeys but as a general rule:

You should use honey that you want your mead to taste like.
If you like the taste of orange blossom honey, you'll probably
like the taste of mead made from it.

(helpful huh?)

Another general rule:

The darker the honey, the longer it will take an aged mead to
mature. (short meads are a whole n'other animal)
