Default Nakhla drying out?

I brought some Nakhla Double Apple back from Germany and I opened it to mix some of the molasses mixture in it. I can't use it until my birthday Sept. 17 because my girlfriend got it for my birthday, so she's making me save it until then.

Like I said, I put the molasses in, mixed it up and placed it in an air tight container but I can still smell it when I walk into my room.

You think it will loose flavor? Dry out? Any other negative effects? Or is it fine?

It's torture enough having to wait to smoke it, just the thought of it lying there, unused, drying out, losing the flavor....

As long as its in an air-tight container you should be fine.

I store all my nak in air tights and they stay very fresh even tho the smell leaks thru like mad. I keep mine in ziplock bags inside the containers as well just for added protection

Generally the scent of most Mu'assel is strong enough you can smell it through the plastic. Its not actually hitting contact with the air, or at least not enough to cause it to dry out quickly.

Good airtight containers will keep for a long time.
