I just got a jar of this spice and love how it smells. Would love to hear Chowhounds' descriptions of what it tastes like. Thanks!

    You're no fun!

    "Sweet, mild, aromatic curry."

      There are countless "recipes" for blending Ras el Hanout so trying to describe what yours tastes like would be an exercise in futility.
      There are three common blends for Ras el Hanout known as Monuza, Lamrouzia, and L'msagna , each having its own blend of many spices including peppercorns, cumin, cinnamon, turmeric, chiles, cloves, and a variety of exotic roots and herbs.
