C&D's true Navy Cavendish crumble cake is made with hand-stoved red Virginia and golden Virginia, soaked in a premium rum for seven days, then lightly stoved again, pressed and cut. The seven days are the time it took our seagoing forefathers to sail back to New England from the Islands with the tobacco in their casks soaked with rum. The ship on the label is the Advance, the South's most successful blockade runner.

Wow, is all I can say when I popped open the tin I was assailed by the great tin note smelled so good I wanted to eat some. Pretty much ready to smoke though a little drying time may be advisable.
