A tin of McClelland Scottish Woods. Sort of like a soda that has gone flat.
Let that tin "breath" for several days before smoking it again, bro. Airing it a few minutes over several days arrests the fermentation process. This tobacco has very high ratings:

Cracked two tins last evening. Dunhill Flake, and a 3.5 ounce tin of McClelland St. James Woods. Been waiting for a LONG time for P&Cs to send me 19 ounces of McCl 2015, so I needed a VaPer to smoke, and SJWs is a good one.

Did the Scottish Woods get better after some time? I bet it did, Brother Fainn. :wavey:

a 3.5 ounce tin of McClellend's St. James Woods. Beautiful dark, thick, broken flakes.

Not really "opened", but while rearranging my cellar I came across a full one-pound bag of 1Q stuffed into one of those crazy decorative tins with a lever-closed top. It's had to have been there for at least five years and I'd completely forgotten about it.

It has been several weeks since I popped a tin open...I have been smoking some bulks that I have. I also found a use for The Presbyterian Mixture MATCH that isn't. But tonight I will open a tin of Blockade Runner that has been waiting for me for about 2 years...this stuff is the BOMB when it has a year or two on it!

Aside from two tins of McCl Tudor Castle I cracked and aired, this tin of Orlik DSK. Two tins have been in my "cellar" for 15 months, so I'm just trying this for the 1st time. Not sure about it. May not be for me. Something for the box pass perhaps...

Can't pass a judgment as I've just had only one bowl so far.

Huh yeah, I guess so.
As thus we sat in darkness
Each one busy with his prayers,
"We are lost!" the captain shouted,
As he staggered down the stairs.
