I cracked open my first tin of Samuel Gawith Kendal Brown Special the other day. First pinch, I wasn't that impressed. In fact, I liked it less than the Kendal Brown Original (which I'd only ever had in the tap box before, and which went desert-dry after a week or so).
I shook just about a day's worth into my "snuffbox" (an empty 10g WoS tin, which is not airtight) and the next morning it was like a different snuff. It had improved dramatically.
So, my question: Is it normal that some snuffs benefit from some air first, when taken right out of the vacuum tin? Or am I just imagining things?
