Looks like sugar to me.
If it's mold it'll smell like mold.
Makes sense but that hasn’t been my limited experience.
I had a tin of moldy baccy that smelled as I would expect it to about 6 months ago. It was obviously moldy; fuzzy circle and everything. Smelled just fine.
Maybe it wasn’t moldy enough to stink.

Not necessarily. I’ve had tins that when opened were completely blanketed in fuzz. No moldy smell.
Interesting. Everything I've come across always smelled "off" and moldy.
Maybe different blends act differently.
I guess if it were fuzzy and known to be mold I guess I probably wouldn't have sniffed it.
Another thing I do if its slight is to look at it in the sunlight to look for sparkling crystals.

It never had a moldy smell and unfortunately Jeremy Reeves just confirmed it to be mold.

My intention for this post was not to start a debate but I have never seen this type of mold formation so I wanted to get some clarification because I thought maybe the tobacco was supposed to look that way.

Thankfully Jeremy cleared it up and hopefully this helps someone out in the future.

I would have smoked that without hesitation 😂 Glad there are experts smarter than I out there! Greatly appreciate this thread - I’ve got a good dozen tins of this stored away, I’ll keep an eye out in the years/decades down the road as I slowly dip into the reserves.
