I'm curious how everyone's cellar is stocked. I did a quick count and I was surprised to find I had less aromatics than I thought.
Using general classifications mine is:
English/Balkan 50%

VA/PER 40%

Aromatics 10%
I thought I smoked and cellared more aromatics than that.

About sixty-forty, or seventy-thirty, favor non-aromatic. Even the aromatics I like are decidedly tobacco forward.

I have my cellar divided like this.

20 Virginia flakes and plugs

10 Virginia/Burley/Kentucky flakes and plug

8 Virginia/Perique flakes, plug and rope

2 aromatics
My math sucks so if anyone wants to correct my math, please don't hesitate.

50% Va flakes

26% Vaburs

23.% Vaper

1% aromatic

Had to check online for my totals. Pretty surprised at the numbers. I really thought VA/OR would have been my biggest percentage.
