Default Funny smell in my Mizo Mint

So I was watching TheGirlFriend's video review of the El Hennyway Double Apple and she planted the idea in my head to mix some Mizo Mint with Nakhla DA.

My Mizo like most of my tobacco, is stored in a Ziploc plastic container. When I opened it, I took a quick whiff and was greeted with a smell I can only describe as a mix of mint and tartar sauce. It's almost smells like it spoiled, which I don't think is possible.

I got this stuff only a few weeks ago and I know it didn't smell like that when I opened the package and transferred it to the Ziploc.

I went ahead and made the mix, the smoke seems fine. In fact the mint flavor is very strong.

I'm letting the container sit open for awhile to see if it needs some acclimation. I'll update here in an hour or two and share the results.

It's strange. I've had it open for nearly two hours now and the smell is still there. I wonder if I somehow just didn't notice it when I got it. I'll leave it open tonight and see what happens.

I opened mine fresh and that's the first scent I picked up, and I asked my friends if they smelled it - it was unanimous that the mint was an undertone to feet flavor.

I find that the mizo mint is kinda gross. their regular mint or AF mint are the best though. Regular Nak mint is amazingly strong, I love it!

I would agree at the moment. Stuff has been open for 4 hours now and if anything the "feet" smell is worse.

Not sure, I had gotten a sample from oramac awhile back and didn't notice it then.

Beware that the regular mint from Nahkla does have a yeasty, fermented smell to it...Not sure if its the same in Mizo or not.

Well, I let the stuff sit open from about 6pm to about 5:30am when I was getting ready for work. I was still half asleep so didn't pay much attention to the smell, I just closed up the container so the cats wouldn't get at it. I reopened it when I got home and can safely say the smell has improved, still off but better. I've left it open and will see what happens!

Never had it happen to me. I don't like Mizo Mint very much, only because it is really potent stuff. It just freezes my lungs and makes me cough

Just opened mine and it smells like a mixture of feet and vinagar. Ew.
Should I toss the stuff or will the smoke still be ok?

After acclimating for many hours, mine still has that smell, not as bad I guess but still. I haven't tried smoking it straight but in a mix it seems okay.

i attempted to make a video review of the stuff straight. but idk exactly how to make a video review haha.

but anyway i'll try to upload it at some point.

basically the idea is that it tastes better than it smells, but not like normal mizo mint. you get a minty taste but still a slight vinegar taste too.

I've pretty much written mine off. I just now opened the container and that fowl scent is right back in full force. I suppose I should man up and try it straight.

Think if you guys change your socks more regularly the feet smell should go away some foot powder will also help

The 50 grams my daughter bought smells fine and yes it is minty feels like breathing Ice

Maybe a sprinkle of Desenex would do the trick!

50 gram? I didn't think you could get the Mizo stuff in a 50.
