It's not that bad. Open the tin and let it air out for a couple days, a fresh tin can be a little overwhelming, and don't worry it won't dry out Just rub it out completely and smoke it slow. Either smoke it in a smallish pipe or only smoke a half bowl. The first time you try it make sure you eat something before hand and if you start to feel the the nicotine kicking in drink a soda or something else with sugar in it. Then sit back, relax, and enjoy.
1792 really is like nothing else I have smoked, the smoke is so smooth and creamy
