    I popped open a tin of Old Joe Krantz by cornell and Diehl that had been sitting on a shelf since autumn of 2007 recently. It had puffed up to the extent that it was destabilizing a stack of tins, which seems to be the case with many of the C&D tobaccos I purchased that long ago.

    Pretty darn good stuff. Took a little drying, presents a nice range of Siena and light umber hues. Smells fabulous in the tin, slightly fruity - musky/musty - nutty. Very much a tobacco odour.

    A very pleasant Burley, which if puffed gently provides a semi-full and infinitely satisfying smoke. It can give a bit of a nicotine wallop if you're not careful. Goes well with coffee and tea.

    Can't say what the roomnote might be; I haven't asked anyone.

    It's more enjoable than Haunted Bookshop, but not dissimilar.
    Halfway through this tin at present.
    Recommended, for Burley aficionados.
    And other fifty three year old men.

    Boring wafflegab about tobacco.

    Good review, Atboth. Love the link in your sig file, friend.


    It ain't the way I wanted it! I can handle things! I'm smart! Not like everybody says - like dumb - I'm smart and I want respect!

    I picked up a 2009 tin a couple months ago, and it was just as you described! I really enjoy old joe, but I hope that a new batch tastes just as good as the aged tin I found.

    (It looks as though I'm 30 years too young for it, though, by your recommendation!)
