Re: anyone else use hot water in the vase
On a side note I have done this a few times a long time ago. we discussed it here before and people have seen varying results based on the tobacco used. It is a good technique to add to your arsenal so to speak.
It can enhance some flavors but for the most part it's a bit psychosomatic. I stopped because it was not enough of a change to really care about in my opinion. the tobacco i usually smoke is flavorful enough to not call for extra work. I usually just use room temperature water in the base.
