Overall: I first heard about “The Nilla” from @northycountrypharms while perusing a menu at a local dispensary. I noticed the high price tag, but none of the budtenders had tried it yet and I hadn’t heard anything yet, so I passed. So when @inspector_ganja420 dropped this onto the table, I had to take it for a spin. With a cryptic lineage, I was curious to see how this one might deliver with it’s promise of Vanilla… a difficult flavor to attempt.

In ordinary fashion, as I crack the seal on the jar, God allows a new angel to grows its wings. I dig my nose in because I’m not getting much here. Something like raw dough, salty, water. I ponder for about 10 minutes with this jar just trying to pull something out, and all I can make out is faint hint of some herb or leaf of a berry I’ve smelled during Christmas. Only does cracking the buds near my nose does bring up memories of red velvet cake.

An abrasive throat hit sends me close to coughing, but ya boi holds on. The smoke is mildly sweet, I do understand why they called it The Nilla. Vanilla Bean is what my palate craves, but instead the end flavor resembles something closer to vanilla extract. An artificial caramel, like after a swallow of coca-cola, coats my mouth, but not for long. Gently it all swirls into a caryophyllene-like lingering pepper and hops finish.

I don’t know how to say this in a sweet way other than I simply did not care for this strain. There’s a chance that with a fresh batch I could see the potential of this flower. For now, this is a hard pass.

The Fire Scale: 5/10 flame-jukoons
