    Re: Whole leaf tobacco

    8 lb package arrived from Big B.
    First noticed: good looking cured tobacco, the YTB smells great. All the leaves look good and still have some moisture, nothing is over dried out.

    Just deribbing now, will smoke some later today.

    Mainly the light yellow VFC has more moisture then what I had been buying, but none of it is ruined black/brittle stuff....not even the leave ends! I'm sure its gonna be great.

    Tried some yellow vfc, it tasted grassy. I think I need to toast it some.

    Try allowing it to air out for a few days.

    Thanks, Bob.

    I'm still a noob with leaf.

    The Red vfc and the YTB burley are great tasting and smoke well. I think the yellow will be fine too.

    This air here was full of moisture . I would lay tobacco out and it absorbed moisture up quick .
    Mix in some YTB , Burley or silver river . See if that changes the flavor .

    It's been good as a "blender" from the get go. But to smoke it (the yellow) as a standalone tobacco I'll wait a few days.

    I didn't order Silver River.....don't have that. Just the 3 (yellow, red and YTB)

    Re: Whole leaf tobacco

    I did find a small ziplock baggie with a BURSA sample, inside the 2 lb bag of orange/red vfc.

    But the center of that 5 lb WET bag of yellow VFC you sold me is moldy. I threw away a good bit, no need to reimburse me. I learned a lesson, stick with WLT tobacco.

    .....

    I put all of that 5 lbs in a large box, left it in my attic all this time. had plenty of time to dry. The outside top I could see was ok....But once I dug thru all of it I was pretty pissed.

    If you sell tobacco it should arrive ready to shred anyways.
