What are people saying about 2Tre Organics Nutmeg with Mace?

Packaged in what looks like an excellent food grade bag that will retain freshness/flavor and appropriately labelled.
I'm happy with my purchase and would recommend to others. These are a gift so I did not open the packet and have not tried nor tasted them so cannot complete the 'Freshness" nor the Flavor" ratings at this time.
“I have never ordered unprocessed nutmeg before so I didn't really know what to expect. I was not disappointed. I figured the photo was photoshopped to make it more colorful. Nope. That's the way they looked when I opened up the package. That red covering is "mace". It was not removed.
After taking the mace off I began filing the nut like I saw in a photo. After not making any progress with the file I decided to try cracking the nut and that turned out to be the key. Inside was the nutmeg "meat" ready for grating - when grated, it smelled very fresh.
I'm very happy with my purchase and the order came very quickly.”

Excellent quality and aroma. Received 12 large, shiny, fresh whole nutmegs well packed in a plastic pocket from 2Tre. These are fine quality nutmegs not the dried out whole nutmeg (pale brown and no mace) offered by other vendors or in the local grocery store.
Planning to buy more when my pumpkin pie spice mix runs out - nutmeg featured heavily in my mix and in my Caribbean rum cake.
“Fantastic. I don't know where else to get raw mace. Also some people in the reviews mention staleness. I think these may have indeed sat around for a bit, but it doesn't show in any way in the ground up flavor - which is fantastic.”
