...and I think it has some type of addictive substance in it, probably crack, due to the fact that I have trouble removing the pipe from my mouth once I start a bowl. It's my new all-time absolute favorite this week. :D
Any other Falconheads out there?
I had also heard good things about it which encouraged me to order a tin a while ago. I love the stuff! It reminds me a lot of G.L. Pease's Westminster (which I also love) but to me, it seems a bit sweeter and that "secret spice" keeps me coming back haha
I've also heard tell of the ginger flavor, though I've never picked up on that in particular, I get other baking spices from it, cinnamon, clove... maybe its pumpkin spice... 8O
Greg's Maltese Falcon is very tasty. The spicy note is mysterious but may indeed be ginger.
When smoking it, I also like to think of the novel of the same name by Dashiell Hammett published in 1930 as well as the film noir adaptation staring Humphrey Bogart in 1941. All set in San Francisco, a city well known to Greg Pease, where anything can happen...
Heh, I don't know if this makes sense, but Maltese Falcon tastes like a blend that would be named Maltese Falcon and the tin art is perfect, too. I don't taste ginger liqueur, though I haven't had it since I first eard that was its topping, but like lightmyfire, I get a lot of warm, slightly sweet baking spices.
In his review, Jiminks said the secret ingredient is ginger. I believe him, but like you guys I didn't recognize it. I should probably buy more right now, so if y'all will excuse me I have to find a pawn shop so I can sell this tv I found in my neighbors' living room while they were at work.
