Yep, I am feeling like I got pretty damn lucky on this one. If it rehydrates and smokes well (or even just not horribly), I am going to rehydrate then jar it all, saving it for special occasions.

It is bone dry. That tin had been open, and no seal to speak of. I plan to do the damp paper towel and tupperware method. Just one slice at first to see how it works.

Do you have one of those vaperizers, like you use for a kid with a cold? I used one to rehydrate some tobacco in bulk and it worked really well. The fine mist was easy to control and seemed to soak into the leaf well.

I remember reading about rehydrating tobacco long ago, the method they suggested (I believe this was on the Professors Pipe Page) was to find a small spray bottle (Walmart for .99) and mix vinegar to water, 10 parts water to vinegar, spread out on a paper towel and spray lightly, then reseal.

Look it up on Google and see what you find on the subject. I was going to rehydrate some 3 year old Amphora Red.

I've not heard of the vinegar before. I am going to have to do some more research it seems.
I hadn't either. Nor have I experimented with that method. I have used a damp paper towel and draped it over the toby and resealed the lid. But I thought the paper towel may have leached some of the flavor out.

Check out the Virtual Smoking Lounge vids on Youtube. He has an interesting method of rehydrating.

Edgeworth Slices are worth whatever effort you expend. Chances are burley tobacco won't lose much flavor. I've had good success with rehydrating burleys - almost total failure with really old and dry latakia blends.

The tin itself looks to be in outstanding shape. That in itself made it a great find. Hope you enjoy every puff! :puffy:

Well, as it has warmed up around here, I decided to try rehydrating a slice and see how it goes. I have it in a shallow food storage container with a damp paper towel over it. I will check it when I get home from work and see how it looks.

Haha... It is only 10am here. I have several hours to go. In the meantime I am opening a tin of SG Westmorland and gonna get it ready for a bowl at lunch.
