Tonic Minty Dreams has a unique and pleasant aroma of mint and possibly mild berries, though which ones, if any, aren’t clear. Once the session began it quickly produced smoke and flavor, the richest of which came after about 8 minutes. The session lasted about an hour and forty minutes before the smoke and flavor dropped off significantly.
Minty Dreams, as the name suggests, is very minty. Though the mint is not an intense mint, such as Nakhla’s Mizo Mint. Rather, the mint is a variety of sweet mints, probably of more than one variety, with an underlying sweetness which is likely a berry or fruit flavor, but it’s so subtle it’s nearly impossible to pin-point which ones.
I’m not typically a huge fan of mint flavors, but Minty Dreams hits on all cylinders. The mint is mild enough to let you remain in engaged in your conversation, rather than being constantly engaged in the flavor itself. It’s simply an excellent blend of flavors and is extremely accessible most likely making it an instant party-favorite.
Who Should Try This Flavor
Fans of mint flavors should find this one inviting. If, however, you’re especially fond of the extreme mints, this one will probably be a little disappointing.
