So I've been a little bit of a hoarder the last few years. I've made some missteps along the way of my tobacco journey. Here is a story of success!! Back in 2013 I purchased a 250g box of SG St. James flake. I put in in an inappropriate container that kept it semi-sealed the last few years. I recently shook it and seemed like it was getting a little dry, although it does have some plume on it! So I popped it open to separate into Mason jars. I sliced up the long flakes and filled 3 jars worth, still pliable yet much drier than I put it in there. Call it near perfect smoking moisture. I'm smoking the scraps from that re-jarring session at the moment. Every puff is pure delight. Rich, deep fruit notes with a little pepper and spice. Burning perfectly. Full flavor so I don't feel the need to puff, just a sip is pure pipe-stacy. This is what a VA/Per should taste like. Outstanding!
