    Is it mold or sugar crystals. You will know by the stink if it's mold.

    If at first you don't succeed you are running about average.

    Yeah it would smell very bad if it was mold!!

    hmm no bad smell so maybe its crystals. the flake reminds me of the tobacco i used to smell my great aunt smoking, its quite earthy as for the navy cut it smells well like nothing really was very dry but knowing me i will have a bowl.

    It's probably crystals then. Often the key signature of a well-aged blend. Happy puffing and congrats on that score!
