Default how to tell bad tobacco

can someone please explain how you can tell when tobacco starts to go bad? how does the taste change? i'm going for early detection. i find that the quality (taste) begins to deteriorate within a few months, even before the marked expiration dates. i'd appreciate hearing experiences on different brands. is the wetness a factor in shelf life?

thanks ~

Yeah I had a 250g of starbuzz vanilla that at first was awesome but about a week ago i threw it away, smell/tasted like fermented dough and permanent marker. Its not the actual tobacco going bad for sure...I think its their flavoring, but idk

well if it says AF on it then its gone bad

but in all seriousness, tobacco takes a while to go bad. it seems to me that nakhla seems more stable. tangiers is hit or miss for me just like with the acclimation (some times it doesnt need any some times it wont work) and it just either stays good or kinda needs a bit more attention. i havent had a lot of different SB but bluemist gets this nasty over tone to it really fast.

realistically tobacco should last 6 months to 2 years at least, it can last a lot longer though. basically if it smells bad, you see anything growing, it just isnt enjoyable, or anything else questionable then get rid of it.

Hey dont waste the bad tobacco put it in a pail ad water and pour over plants the nicotine will keep plant lice and other insects at bay so you still get a use for it.
