i went through 50 lbs of gaslight. Then i took a decet break for many reasons. the new 8 oz can came in with tiny half trashes bricks and some nice ones and the taste seems to have changed a bit. still a wonderful aroma though. my favorite since Greg came up with it. Thanns.

I doubt that the blend has changed on purpose. Over the years blenders have to constantly adapt to changes in crops and leaf availability. If you hadn't taken a break the incremental changes probably wouldn't have been as obvious, and you'd be none-the-wiser that anything happened. Take a long break though and you are jumping straight into something that is likely pretty different crop/component wise, etc.. so it might taste fairly different - especially given how complex Gaslight is.

50 pounds of any single blend is impressive.
