Yes, welcome! I live in Idaho now but lived and worked in Kendal for years. I hope all the future plans for the company work out and keep the tradition of Kendal tobacco alive.
I can taste the oil. I find it singularly unpleasant, but to each his own. What I do find remarkable is that the product doesn't feel greasy at all; you wouldn't know that it was covered in oil. I suppose the baking processes burns it all off.That why the black twists are so shiny. Its rather strange that the olive oil doesn't impact the taste but it does explain why they remain pliable long after brown twist has dried out.
Does anybody have links to any other videos from G&H factory? I’d love to see how the flakes are made and the perfumes added!!!
