Yuppers, grow em, cure em, case em, process em,( slice, dice, press, or roll. Cook or stove em, whatever. ) wait a year or so...
Wait. Sharp tastes will take less time, (months to a year), smooth and less to no bite, many years. Wait.
Wait. Or don't. Depends on how long you waited before in the other processes.
If you hurry the stages, you risk smoking brackish cigarette tobacco in your pipes. A rule of thumb I use for Ginnies is 5 years old for my blends. I do have a couple of 'young blends' like Lonesome Llama that the Virginias are only 2 years old. But then I mix other tobaccos in it, so it helps.
