Hello. I've got a question for you AnniKake smokers. I'm stating the following in case it matters on the age at the time it was tinned.
I opened up some of my Anniversary Kake and it was EXTREMELY moist. Like I could have squeezed it together and gotten juice if I pressed it hard enough (well almost). So I set some of out to dry for a few hours. I'm guessing it was newly made, I've never gotten tobacco that wet. It smoked really well after it was dried, but I found there's a "wine" taste that sort of covers my mouth. It isn't unpleasant but I felt like it hampered the overall taste and it's not something I'd purchase again. It's almost got a chocolate component to it. (I've smoked about 2 ozs of the stuff at this time.) I jarred about 14 oz of it to see if it would go away.
So my rambling question to you, is in your experience with it, did you get that same almost cloying taste on your batch? And is it something you think will go away after some years time? I can't add it to my cellar list yet because of that nagging taste.
I tend to prefer my VaPers either sweet/grassy/peppery or lightly citrus/mildly peppery. Again I liked the AK, but it feels topped with something too heavy and I'm hoping that will go away with time. I realize everyone's tastes are different but has anyone found this to be the case? Thanks.
TLDR: Does the wine taste in AnniKake go away with time?
