I was lucky enough to do a trade with rmbittner recently and got my hands on some Stonehaven. When it arrived, I got a bag of some very long strips of dark brown/black flake and noticed sugar crystals were forming on the tobacco
I'm not gonna lie to you guys, my heart skipped a couple of beats.
Now that being said, I have never smoked a blend where sugar crystals had started to form on the tobacco, so my question is: should one take even more care when smoking a blend like this? Do the sugar crystals under the influence of the flame make the tobacco burn even hotter? Any tips/tricks I should know that will facilitate a better smoking experience? I am thinking of saving this for a special occasion, but I might have to try a bowl or two just to see what it is like. Any advice is appreciated, and thanks again to rmbittner for a wonderful trade!
