    I just took stock of my cellar. I have 69 different blends. How many in your cellar? how many in your cellar Jim?

    Hell I dont know. Probably 100 tins and 50 jars of stuff lurking around. If I had to guess I'd say 70 blends.

    Probably enough for the rest of my life. All this talk of the looming Tobaccopocalypse got me all spooked and I went on a TAD rampage.

    Well over 125 different blends and usually (currently) more on the way...

    About 30. Maybe 10 of those I intend to stock up.

    Smoking is one of the leading causes of all statistics.

    248 different blends.....fortunately, I have them all written down on notepad. Unfortunately, now that I counted them all, I have way too many.

    I do not have a cellar and I do not hoard tobacco based on rumours. I have tried about 40 different tobaccos and will rebuy the good ones when my stuff runs low.

    Having a decent cellar does not equate to hoarding in my book.

    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.

    I don't think of it as hoarding either. To me, it's like a wine cellar. You have choices according to my mood without having to order and wait (at which time my taste may have changed) or having to drive an hour and a half to see if my "local shop" has the blend I want.

    37 after recently getting rid of a bunch. My list of given-away or sold is growing almost as long as those I've kept.

    Probably about 40 or 50 I regularly smoke about 6 or 7 of them. But, they'll all get smoked in time.

    I have 27 blends in the cellar that I'm specifically aging, of those 27 blends I've cellared deep on 10. I've also got around a dozen single tins of blends that are aging because they where bought on impulse when I was figuring out my likes and dislikes and lets just say I'm in no rush to open them just yet.

    Sadly of the 27 blends in my cellar 11 are no longer available and I only started cellaring 5 years ago. I'm surprised how much the market has changed in such a small time frame.

    I have 20 blends cellared. Wish I had more, but money is tight.

    If you count small samplers of an ounce or two of various baccys, - maybe a couple hundred different blends?

    I have about 5 dozen blends in the cellar, but many of those were blends I bought a couple tins of with no intention of really stocking up. For the stuff I truly cellar (and have multiple pounds of), that's about ten blends.

    In trying everything under the sun to discover what I like, probably 84 jars! Maybe 15 more I've not tried, sitting on a stash of HU blends and a few Samuel Gawith I've not opened. I do drift through an amazing number of them rotating categorically as the mood hits me to change it up.

    Ditto. Couldn't have said it better myself.

    npod's answer of 42 maybe on the money, or the Heinz number of 57 (krizzose) for various tins and bulks in my cabinet. There will be some surprises when I reach the back of the cupboard.

    Around 40-50. I've got them all in a spreadsheet someplace.

    Many are less than 2oz. I bought lots just to try. I've found about 10-ish that I cellared deeply and another 10-ish I enjoy but not enough to cellar. The rest will get smoked up but I don't care for enough to replace.

    I have 42(no lie) blends in my cellar. All but 3 are a flake,a plug or a rope. I am very happy where my cellar is at variety wise and age wise. I keep saying that I have no need to buy any more tobacco. Unless of course SP does another aged tin sale, I just had to come out of retirement for that.

    Thank you Mike - I was getting a complex. If you lived close (NC) we would have a "stash night"

    Too many to count. I don’t want to have to pull out all of the tins and jars. Suffice it to say, a bunch. The question leads me to think I should have catalog my purchases.

    52 2 oz jars. All different. 2nd year in and starting to define what I like. I’ve picked a few blends to start ordering one or two with every order to build depth for aging. Enjoying the ride.

    The important number is around 90 blends of a pound or more. Probably only 25 to 30 3 lbs or more.
