New tobacco? Try This!
Purely by accident, we at BS.com discovered the Magic Basement. (Okay, it's not the basement that's magic, but it sure seems that way.)
We opened various sealed tins of English-style tobaccos and placed the contents into quart-sized glass Bell jars (available at most large grocery stores.) Since the tobaccos were coming right out of the tin, no moisturization method was employed.
Wait 2 or 3 weeks. Like a fine wine, they need some mingling. Don't open, but shake the jars around so the tobaccos break up and re-blend. Let them sit another 2 or 3 weeks. Shake them loose and open the jar.
We found this worked wonders on the new Dunhill Nightcap - it brings forward the latakia to what Nightcap *should* be, and mildly tames the bittery-tart bite of the Perique.
This also worked a magnificent transformation on Bennington Tobaccos "Knightsbridge" blend, resulting in a deep rich English quite similar to Dunhill's 965 or Paul Olsen's My Own Blend 7000.
