Default Anyone else in Hawaii having bad experiences with SB?

my first can of SB blue mist that i smoked from the beginning of this month tasted wonderful. unfortunately, every other bowl out of that can after the first had almost completely lost its flavor. i had it sealed in an air tight preserve jar so i originally thought it was a problem with my coals. i ordered some natural light coals from john and that still didn't fix the problem (as awesome as those coals are). i just figured it must have been a bad tin or something so i ordered three 250g jars of sb from john and they arrived yesterday. the new can of wildberry tasted pretty nice in my first bowl and i made sure it was in an airtight ziplock and stored back in its tin. pretty disappointed today when i started another bowl and the flavor was considerably different from yesterday. very light berry taste and its getting that chewed-out gum kind of flavor again. i'm smoking out of a temsah world cup with a narbish with two CH natural light coals. either i'm failing at smoking starbuzz which is just sad, or something about the air in hawaii is intent on screwing me over. I've got another 250g can of blue mist that i'm afraid to open now because i don't want it to get ruined. anybody else have this problem?

I don't live in Hawaii, but my experience was the other way around from yours.
When I got my Blue Mist, it had very little taste - Hardly felt any blueberry, nor the tingeling from the mint.
But now it's been 3 months since I got it, now it got a strong good flavour, wierd.

If in an airtight container I would suggest Mixing the tobacco up for most of the juices would drain to the bottom and letting it sit out to air for a bit before smoking to get it to adjust to the climate of Hawaii

man i hope i don't have to wait three months to enjoy my stabuzz. i did try mixing it up with the juices and letting a small bowl sized portion air out for an hour. if anything i think that made it even worse. wildberry tasted horrible, like an old burnt cherry or something.

That's an interesting problem, but starbuzz is the easiest tobacco for me to smoke. Usually never burn a bowl of SB. Hopefully you get your problem fixed.

I agree. The smoke does come very easily but the flavor is just not there. Expiration dates say they're good until 2011 so it can't be that it's old or anything.

I haven't had any troubles with SB. As a matter of fact, when all else fails, I turn to SB LOL(then again, I smoked/threw out pretty much all of my other no name brands, so now I have 4 sb flavors, 1 roman and 1 fumari haha).

I always kept mine in the tins but I put on a sheet of saran wrap then cap it but I bought screw on lid type tupperware and now I have my SB in those.
Did you try mixing up the tobacco to spread the juices before making a bowl?



I'm on Oahu, where are you?
