I have a tin of Mac Baren HH ODF I bought new about one month ago with a date of June 2013 on the back label. Can I assume that this was packed on 6/13? If that's the case, I should leave it in the tin rather than jar it for aging, as opening the tin would stop the aging that has been going on for almost two years. I know that some companies, such as GLP, date their tins and some do not. I know that many people jar new tobacco for aging, but is it common for new tins to already have a year or two of age on the, as this Mac Baren tin seems to? (unless I am misinterpreting what the date means). Do you guys factor this in when you jar for aging? I am a little leary of the seal on square tins, though.
