It took a long and arduous learning period, but I can make my HH smoke deliciously and satisfyingly, and for as hard as I knocked the brand for so long, I've actually grown fond of a handful of flavors. I smoked 7spice last night, and I still love it lol. I dunno. It is a very physically nasal flavor, but I wouldn't go so far as to say potpourri haha.
Sorry to hear people out there dislike it!
