Days improved it a lot - two or three weeks a whole lot more. It reminded me of University Flakle by Peterson for half the money.
Out of the tin, Mixture Flake and Navy Flake arrive with a deceptively dry appearance and texture. But as Dan noted, these flakes benefit dramatically from a healthy spell of drying in an unsealed but closed tin. This notable improvement is a characteristic that these two blends share with several other, if not all, the MacB's I've tried.

Shows great minds think alike; I remember reading a post by Dan in this or some other forum, about two years ago, making exactly the same observation about Navy Flake. I remember it because if iirc it was in relation to my post about smoking Navy Flake for the first time. ave:
