I bought an old-style 8-ounce bag of Cardiff today at my local B&M, having had no experience with Esoterica other than Penzance (which I also bought - lucky me).
Does anybody have any experience with this blend? It's not listed on luxurytobaccoreviews. The description from Germain says:
An outstanding, well balanced mixture of four Virginias, pressed until reddish-brown and then fully rubbed up. A truly traditional tobacco for the most discerning palate.
Should I open and jar the Cardiff? (It doesn't look to have been very popular and I think it might have been discontinued.)
My guess is cellaring it wouldn't hurt. What do you think?
