There have been lots of TAD posts lately. I've been wondering if the advent of spring inspires us to celebrate the warming days by stocking our cellars? There is also a growing, ever present mantle of the tax man's intrusion into our enjoyment.
My motivation for this episode of TAD contains both the anticipation of sunny, warm days with a smattering of paranoia regarding the impending doom of prohibitive and unfair taxation on pipe tobacco.
The antidote to the later and the celebration of the former is that I will enjoy every single bowl and puff of this delicious smorgasbord.

I have a limited space to store tobacco, but this time of year I do like to make sure I have enough of my favorites to last through the sailing season. There aren't many tobacco stores around here and it is difficult to get to them when I am on the move all summer.
Enjoy your cellar. It looks like it will last a good long while.

... the anticipation of sunny, warm days...

You are correct on the springtime and tax time buying sprees. If I get any money back from the IRS this year I see another shopping event in the near future. So many choices, so many blends. :rofl:

A great haul! Some great stuff in there.
After almost a year of avoiding the TAD bug (Mainly by buying a tin here and there when I visit the smoking lounge), it's the bug has taken me, and taken me hard. I've been putting off buying for the past few days, trying to see if I can fight it off, but with no luck.
