    Looks just like mine man, hope you like it. I couldn't resist trying it right out of the grinder though. I felt it in my gums, oddly enough.

    It's awesome. smells like fresh hay and clean cow. Brings me back to playing in the hay loft at my cousin's beef farm as a little kid. I feel the hit in my front teeth and the base of my skull.
    Very little throat burn on post nasal drip with the yellow cured.
    Fantastic "toot", and will be even better when the alkali does it's freebase magic.

    I'm quite taken with this. It's maturing very nicely.

    I think next year I will be doing this on purpose with a few plants, yellowing then baking is resulting in a fine product.

    I noticed I had 5 leaves that had flash dried brownish green from my Mahorka (tiny Russian rustica), so what do I do? They went into the coffee grinder, followed by salt, splenda, lime and bergamot. Green ain't my thing but now it's just a sweet orange and really good all the same. Made like 20 grams and I don't think it'll last long.

    Snuff really is too easy, but so good.

    Cracked open the jar today. It's tough to say if the alkali freed up more nicotine, but that might be due to me building a tolerance over a week of many toots per day, where I started this thread with a once-a-week or less habit.
    The barn smell has all but disappeared, and the snuff is pretty neutral at this point.
    Appreciably more burn in the sinuses; about the same as your standard american snuff.

    Round two!

    45 days post topping, stalk cured, aged until now, no kilning. Coarse ground, otherwise same recipe.

    Much, much more nicotine than the first batch.

    Olson is a strong winner.
