Quite by accident I uncovered 2 small unmarked tupperware cups while I was putting up the mason jars from this seasons Virginia crop. I opened them up and smelled what they were. One was the Orange extract mixed with my home smoked Samsun and the other was the Anise that was mixed with some of my Viginia.I had to look back and found I had put these away in 2008. Both had diminished aroma and were fairly dry. Both containers had about a bowlful each....so what the heck, it is a nice day out on the porch and I have some good beer. :mrgreen:
I tried the Anise first. I was surprised that the smoking taste had all but disapeared. Tasted like it had past it's prime. So anote to self about smoking this blend within a year, mainly because of the lighter Virginia used in blending and possibly from it drying out a bit too much.
The Orange and Smoked Samsun however was Heavenly, just as I remember it tasting 3 years ago, maybe better! If I do this one again I will most likely put some up for some longterm aging.

I think 6 months would be just about right to see if there is any real noticable differences. I have not done any brick pressing so I do not know how that might affect the flavors over time. It would be interesting to find out if the flavors change for better or worse.

I forgot to ask...How are you planning on storing the pressed bricks?

Can you tell the "recipe" you used to add flavor to the tobacco ( I mean the recipe without the amount of each materials if you forget it and also the way you did it)? what kind of orange and anise did you use?
