    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

    Roughly speaking, of course. I did do a quick inventory via my cellar spreadsheet before posting though.

    56% VA - McClelland/McCranies, FVF
    36% VA/OR - McClelland, Motzek, D&R, GLP
    6% VA/BUR - Stonehaven
    2% VA/PER - D&R

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

    I know that you believe you understood what you think I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.
