I did an experiment with this fine tobacco. The first few bowls I used the rub out method of preparing the sliced tobacco. Then filled the bowl to smoke. I thought the flavors were pretty good, on the strong side, bit fruity, sweet tobacco flavors. Then I decided to try the fold and stuff method. I thought it would be hard to keep lit but it was not. What was interesting was that the flavors were richer and stronger then the rub out method. If you want stronger flavors out of this tobacco, use the fold and stuff method. I don't know why the flavors are bigger and richer with this method. I guess compacted tobacco flakes smoke stronger, don't know, but I really like the results. One more thing, smoke it slow. If you smoke it too fast and all you get is straight forward strong tobacco flavors. Slow down the cadence, and smoke it slow, you will experience a range of flavors, from sweet, to bitter, to spicy, intense and rich.
