Unknown Blend

Post by StoicDetective » Tue Jan 30, 2018 8:16 am

Would any of Y'all here be able to dissect a tobacco blend? or tell me who could?

I have roughly 3oz of an unknown blend, that I really enjoy. I would like to know what is in it, to try and recreate or fined a suitable supplement. Any ideas of how to go about figuring this out?

.... and no, I do not have enough to send to everybody for their opinions. I don't have a gallon of this stuff.

Not much difference between a good lawyer's, investigator's, or a con-artist's tactics.

... and back to the tobacco questions, Counselor. This court was not convened for discussing argument strategies. Can either the defense or state provide a trusted expert to conduct a tobacco analysis?

Maybe you could describe the cut, taste, smell, color of the tobacco along with the shop where it was purchased and the approximate year if you know?Then, take the 3 oz., divide it all up into its constituent parts as best you can, and post a photo of the mess.

We lost a good portion of our tobacco knowledge when Rusty passed, but there are some other knowledgeable CPSers that might be able to get you close based on information you can provide online. Uncle Bob comes to mind. He is a former tobacconist.

That's the problem. There is no test.
