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.

Boring wafflegab about tobacco.
