Alfie Turmeaus - Mystery Mix A.
I bought all three of the 'Mystery Mix's' by Alfie Turmeaus, and reviewed Mix B yesterday. As I only rated it with one star it goes without question I didn't like it. This on the other hand is better.
When I lifted the pouch's lip I noticed that just like Alfie T' Mix B it's coarser than what you'd expect from a blend labelled Ready Rubbed. The moisture's absolutely fine, so on with the smoking qualities:
I have to differ with the current description of 'a more subtle flavouring. But although it's rather heavy, it's quite pleasant: the cherry and spices are easy to ascertain, but, there's an anomaly to the description: quite a clear vanilla flavour. It burns cool (that always sounds odd; how the heck does something BURN cool?!), and gives quite a thick textured smoke. For Mix A to bite it requires time; I smoked three bowls in succession this morning and the first was totally tame, but subsequently it began: the second gave a subtle nip, and the final gave me an emphatic bite.
The room-note's nice, albeit full and false, and the nicotine's mild.
I think MMA qualifies as a three star blend.
