Flavor Profile of Khalil Maamoon Lemon Mint
Since this is a combination of two flavors, there has to be one primary flavor and another secondary flavor. This is where it gets interesting. Neither of the two distinct flavors can be classified as either primary or secondary. Some people may feel that the lemon is more pronounced. Some may realize that the mint is more dominant than the lemon. The truth is that both these flavors are consistent undertones with neither overpowering the other. You would not experience the tartness and sweetness of the lemon taking over or suppressing the icy cool freshness of the mint, or vice versa.
One can say that the lemon could have been a little more dominant. Likewise, one may also say that the mint is a tad subdued. Khalil Maamoon seems to have walked a tightrope here. It is known for bold flavors and distinct profiles. With their Lemon Mint, they have managed to cater to both types of hookah enthusiasts: the beginners as well as the connoisseurs. The flavor is rich and consistent. There is no bite, either of the lemon or of the mint. Some lemon flavors tend to have a strong tart and sour bite. Some mint flavors tend to have a chilled hit in the throat. These are not what you will experience with Khalil Maamoon Lemon Mint.
