There’s a lackluster VA tobacco I’ve been keeping in my truck with the sole intent of using it up to make room for something better. It’s not awful, it’s just a blend I find unremarkable, and I see no point in hanging on to it. Today, for lack of a reason not to, I packed it into a pipe I have always used with English blends. The ghosting was apparent through the entire smoke, but it wound up adding just a bit of depth and nuance to the otherwise boring VA, and the overall experience was WAY more interesting. The effects of ghosting are typically referred to as something to avoid, but I thought I’d share with y‘all a tactical use for it that I have stumbled across. Cheers, friends!
