Same issue here, and fully agree to dry it out a little. On the same note, does any one have a quick method for drying out there plum pudding?

Not sure one should rush such things ?<img class="emojione" alt="?" title=":wink:" src="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/emojione/assets/png/1f609.png?v=2.2.7"/>

Spread thinly on a side plate and allow to air dry to desired amount <img class="emojione" alt="?" title=":thumbsup:" src="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/emojione/assets/png/1f44d.png?v=2.2.7"/>

Which in the dry desert air of Arid-zona shouldn't take but minutes! ;)


Cheers,

Got a tin that I've been holding onto for about 3.5 years, should probably pop that sucker open.

Just got 2 tins of the Reserve in the first part of the week. Got a bit drying out some for my first bowl of this mixture. I hope it is as good as advertised.

Had my first bowl this afternoon. I have to say this is a smooth, well integrated blend. Balkans are not my favorites as I am not the biggest latakia fan but this one will find a place in the rotation. Good stuff. I broke off a piece and let it dry out on a paper towel for about 4 hours. No problem with light or burn with only my normal relights required. Burned cleanly to the bottom of the bowl. Smokey barbecue like flavors with some sweetness and a touch of tangy every once in a while. I found the latakia taste quite mild.

Have two tins I haven't opened yet. Might be time to pop one and try it.

I've smoked through almost a tin of the bourbon barrel aged, and I'll say I'm a fan. The paper towel method for drying works fine. I've also DGT'd it, coming back the next day for the joy.

Also if you're too lazy to wait for it to air dry you can heat it up on the stovetop with a skillet. Shake the tobacco around over high heat for 20 seconds. It's fast, it's easy.

I love this blend, the reserve is extra special but the standard is mighty fine as well.

As for quickly drying it, my cheat for any tobacco is to use my mug/cup warmer. Turn it on, place tobacco in a bowl on top and go to the loo then make a cup of your favourite poison then come back and load up. Likely a gentler process than a skillet but then it takes a bit longer so patience still plays into it.
