Hello and welcome!
Its not very nice to smoke right after drying, there a lots of bad chemicals inside the leaf that will taste bad and give you a nasty film inside your mouth. But for learning how bad processed baccy taste like, its a good experience. Once the leafs are getting more and more ready to smoke you can taste the difference and feel how good baccy really tastes.

The fermentation process will sweat out all the bad chemicals, do it fast in a kiln or slowly by long storage and waiting. My knowledge is from reading a lot, i do not have full experienced live test yet, so please do read around a little :) Theres already lots of information in the forums different sections :)

I had to do it and it wasnt awful smoke but then again it was not pleasant from the get go but the lower older primed leaf was better then that from further up. Once it all aged a little I was able to blend it into smoother types but I do not really plan on touching this for at least a year. No kiln here and little time to play this time of year..
