    A friend gave be a 12 oz. tin of Middleton London Dock tobacco that is at least 3 to 5 years old. It's quit dry but not really to bad. Does anyone know how to rejvenate it. I smoked a bowl and it wasn't to bad for old tobacco.

    You can try a damp, not wet paper towel in the tin or jar the tobacco should come around again. Leave it overnight, check it, rotate it around so it rehydrates evenly and it should be good to go. If you don't want to go that route, you can use those little humid discs too.

    I've used a damp paper towel placed over the tobacco in a cereal bowl. Then I checked on it every few hours or left it overnight. It's worked well for me.

    I put dry tobacco in a bowl and cover with a moist towel not letting the towel touch the tobacco and check every couple of hours until it is at the moisture level I find suitable for smoking that blend.

    Most tobaccos improve with age unless they have been compromised.:old:
