Took a small piece of the Guawi and Malawi cob cured bud and rolled a couple of pin joints last night. Tonight I rolled the Guawi and Malawi jar cured buds.
IMO neither is fully cured and will not be for a few more months. So this is an early take.
The biggest differences at this point are the smells and tastes when it comes to cob cured vs. jar cured. The cob cured bud burns much nicer and the smoke is much smoother.
Cob curing adds an earthiness to the smell and taste of both Guawi and Malawi. The smells and tastes of the Guawi cob cured compared to jar cured are very different at this point. The jar cured much fruitier and sweeter than the cob cured.
At this point I'm probably going to cob cure most if not all my bud from this point on. It burns so much nicer and slower than jar cured and the smoke is very smooth. I'm not crazy about the earthiness but I can live with it.
Look for final update in late October.
