I just now stumbled upon this thread and I have to say that my thoughts are very nearly the same. I was compiling a list of blends I was thinking about buying as a Christmas present to myself, but at the end of it all I decided I just wanted Carter Hall. I like something a little spicy as a treat very occasionally. I had been having Shortcut to Mushrooms, but I'm beginning to think it's just too sweet for me. Your talking about Walnut got me thinking about it again. It's been more than a year since I last tried it, but I remember liking it very much. I think I'll have to order some soon.
