Many and various tins. No poundage like your cellar. McClellands Christmas Cheer 2015, McClellands Dark Star, SPC Potlatch and Plum Pudding, and much more, about forty tins. When will I smoke it? By and by. No rush, no stress, no schedule.

I've got a few tins for if and when I manage to bring them out for company. Otherwise, I'm content with my bulk blends and blending tobaccos.

I've got a sum total of 9 tins, all with about 2 yrs since arrival to Casa Ocala.

5x Private Stock (Captain Earle's)

1x Escudo

1x OGS

1x JKP

1x Rattray's Marlin Flake 3.5 oz.

Sorry about that aro smokers. :puffy:

Oh lord. I'd have to attach a spreadsheet.
Suffice it to say that I have lots of stuff in the cellar (anything in my cellar is being aged - things I am not aging are in the pantry). I will smoke it at the 5 or 10 year mark. Some of it may go longer - who knows - I dunno. :puffy:

Started typing and realized it's easier to type this.

Various McClelland Bulks and tins. I smoke em when I feel like it and then replace the contents with fresh at the back of the line.

I smoke out of my cellar when the mood hits. Whatever age it reaches by the time I get to it is entirely coincidental. I do have blends from the mid nineties up, but only because I haven't gotten around to smoking them.

I am a complete amateur compared to many of mi compadres here... but that being said, I have several tins of C&D Bijou in the waits, one each of the C&D Cellar Series(as in buy 2, one to smoke and one to keep), several each of my favorite Dunnies, GLPs, and a small smattering of others. I will hope to hang onto the keepers for a reasonable while... but not so long that my cellar will outlive me! Might require a smoking orgy if the end dawns to soon in sight.

Lord, I must have about 70 different blends I'm cellaring right now, and I generally give it a couple of years before I smoke it, some I buy in large enough quantity so that I have lots put away to age for many years even as I enjoy it.

I will smoke it at the 5 or 10 year mark.
Other than acquiring certain plug tobacco at this time, I am starting to smoke thru my aged stock. If I have 10 or 15 years left, I will still have tobacco left...(Who am I kidding, I'll still be buying something LOL)...

Viprati and sunjammer. WhenEver I finish all other blends that I've had longer. Should be at least a year if I pick up my smoking. 3 years if I don't

Well let's see.....
357 tins, with a total of 71 pounds of cellared tobacco. Over 50% is straight Virginia blends, with another 25% that's either VaPer or VaBur. I only smoke about 4 pounds a year, so on average I won't smoke a tin until it's at least ten years old.

You guys aren't aging tobacco. You are hoarding it for the tobacco apocalypse. On the other hand, you'll make a fortune on the tobacco black market.

^^^ it's a commodity. At least that's the way I look at it. With all the new regs, prices are going only one direction. I think it's a sound investment. Then again, it's not like I'm planning on selling any...

Most of my 65 pounds of cellar is VaPers so I am allowing at least 5 years on some before opening and 10 years for all the rest. At 73 years of age I'm hoping that it will last my life time.
