We spend a lot of time discussing various types of smoking pipes and for two very good reasons: we love pipes and we sell a lot of them. But for this post we’re going to focus in on that other vital component of pipe smoking, the tobacco itself. More specifically we’re going to take a close look at the question of whether or not it’s possible to revive old, dried out pipe tobacco and, if so, what are some of the best ways to do so. So if you’re ready to play Dr Frankenstein with your old pipe tobacco let’s begin.
If pipe tobacco is stored property it should last for many years. But every now and then we all drop the ball and lose track of some of our favorite tobacco. It passes completely from our minds until one day when we’re cleaning out the desk and come across that zip lock bag of our favorite Burley that was never properly zipped. As a result the tobacco is dry and dusty and seems like it’s probably a lost cause. But is it? Thankfully, you may be able to revive your Old Toby or other blend by employing one of the following methods.
We mention it briefly above but it’s important to reiterate that you should only use distilled water for any of the above processes. This will insure nothing interferes with the restoration of the tobacco’s true flavor. Also, remember to remove any humidifying object from the tobacco once it’s been restored to its preferred state. Too much moisture can be just as bad as too little.
A lot of folks give up on dried tobacco when they may not actually need to. Just as you can restore old cigars and old smoking pipes you can, in most cases, also breathe new life into old, dried out tobacco. By employing a bit of distilled water, common sense and patience it’s possible to bring your favorite blend back to life for hours of refined relaxation.
