I just opened a 8oz bag of Blackpool and this is what Iím met with...


HELP! A2965510

HELP! Beea5610

It smells OK to me, but Iíve never seen this. Is it like some extreme plume? It is all white and sparkly which makes be believe itís plume, but D*mn... thatís a lot! And itís completely throughout the whole lot of it.

I would be disgustingly upset if I just spent this much to find out it was some type of mold.

White and sparkly prolly means plume Zach. Take a magnifying glass and look carefully at it under bright light. If it isn't hairy it's plume. And that's very good!

Cool


Cheers,

RR

Having personal experience with how Esoterica bags their offerings, I would defer to that NOT being mold. If it looks like crystals that sparkle in light under magnification then you are sitting on pure gold.

If it didn't smell rank upon opening but, smelled like tobacco ... you should be home free.

Keep us posted.

As good of pictures I can get, I canít seem to find my macro lens for my IPhone... Iím now thinking itís fine, it smells like an aromatic, and it appears to be sparkly and the white looks to be crystals... Iíll try a bowl after supper.

Zach, forgot to add that I once had a whole lotta blue stuff on a bag of Stonehaven. I mean like major league! I cried out to the brethern here on BoB about it and was assured it was plume. And it proved to be so.

So plume can take several colours it seems, but white and sparkly seems to be the most common.


Cheers,

RR

That is a beautiful sight Zack! You have so very nice smokes ahead of you with that. I had different colors in a tin of the newer production Balken Sobrane. The important part is it isn't furry but is sparkly crystals. The color can be affected by things in the casing.

Zach,

Not mold, especially if it smells okay. This is very common with Esoterica/Germain blends especially the top flavored tobaccos.

Plume and lots of it. You struck gold (or silver in this case maybe). I have faith in the bags that Esoterica uses so, my original thoughts are confirmed. I received, as part of my Christmas Secret Santa bomb this year, a huge box of S.G. St. James Flake. And when I went to jar it ..... low and behold .... it WASN'T mold! I was also blessed with wonderful plume on my gift that (ahem' Scottie) my secret Santa shipped.

Enjoy that tobacco!

Well heck yeah! I had a bowl last night. I was too excited and I didnít let it dry any. So it took a while to get it to smoke right, but after about 4 matches it smokes pretty well. A very MILD smoke. Iím having the Rehydrated (thanks for the tips guys) Ramsgate now! I think I like this one much more.
