    Was there a date stamp on the tin? I wonder how old it is\was.

    A bit of research shows that this tin is from 2005 or 2006.

    Esoterica Penzance and Stonehaven will age (in pouch, tin or jar) and often show white spots, white streaks, dustiness and/or sparkling surface crystals. Samuel Gawith Full Virginia Flake and a few others do the same at the drop of a match. If the white stuff isn't standing up, hairy-like, off the flake then count your blessings and smoke on.
