I would suggest not toasting Turkish tobacco. It is mildly aromatic to start with. That aroma is easily baked away. It usually ages fairly quickly (5 or 6 months) all on its own, and takes on a supple, fine calfskin texture. Even the sturdier Turkish varieties, like Samsun, are still fairly delicate varieties.
