    The first time I tried CH, at the suggestion of many here, I really didnt like it. Somehow my tastebuds just didnt get it. I even put it in a new MM as was suggested. But......... I keep reading all the suggestions, especially to the new comers and thought, "What the heck, one more try".
    So, it is sitting in my den along with the MM. Here's my question. Should I let this dry out a bit? How long? or just stoke up the MM and have a go.
    Thanks!

    If it's too wet it can run sour; if it's too dry it'll burn hot. If it's springy between your fingers just have a go.

    If you still don't like it, it blends real nice with a lot of other tobaccos. I like it a lot 50/50 with McClelland 5100 or some plain virginias that burn too hot or have gone boring.

    I am just finishing a bowl in a nice briar. Pouch has been open for about a month and a half, but rolled closed.

    Smoked great for me and with nice nutty flavor. Hope your experience gets better.

    Well now.... 5100 and 5110 are not as similar as thier model number suggest. They are light years apart. Can't speak for Carter Hall mixed with latakia-containing 5110; that would be new territory for me.

    Zakly. 5115 and Carter Hall. That would be likely a combination.
