I recently ordered a couple pounds of Butternut Burley, and it came to me very stale, dry, and with almost no flavor left. Luckily the seller made good on it and gave me a refund. The seller didn't want it back, so I was about to throw it away, but before I do I'm wondering if there's a way to salvage this into something smokeable.

I've read that for DIY flavoring, people commonly use rum or whiskey. While I might try that, I'd be more interested in trying to add back flavors closer to the original blend. What do tobacco manufacturers use to flavor their aromatics?
