    I know, but I am a new pipeoholic as my soon to be bride likes to call it. We are getting married in May, and as a wedding gift from her, she gave me an allowance so to speak. I have 2 pipes as of right now, a Missouri Cob and Dr. G "The Duke". I have already coming in the mail a MacQueen Halfling churchwarden, and 3 German imports 2 bent 1 straight. Shes looking at a Calabash Gourd on E-bay for my B-day in June.

    So my TAD is pretty much a mish mosh of cuts and flavors that I have picked from looking at others members TAD's. I figure I really cant go wrong, I will either love them all, or at least some. The rest I can either trade or cellar for a later date. I already have my mason jars ready to go, went out and bought them today.

    Just a couple. G. L. Pease Westminster. To me, this is the perfect English. Peterson Old Dublin and Irish Oak. Both are fantastic, and the Old Dublin in particular has some really great sweet notes that are in the background and make you go, "hmmm, nice." I can't speak for the Mac Baren 7 Seas Royal, but their Regular blend is to me the perfect aromatic. Any way you look at it, enjoy. That's one helluva cellar you're starting up.

    Frog Morton on the Bayou is one of the few blends that I smoke these days. Definitely worth a try.

    I've had some on your list but these are great:
    GL Pease Barbary Coast
    McClelland Tastemaster
    MacBaren 7 Seas Royal Blend 3.5oz Tin
    Two Friends - English Chocolate
    Dunhill Night Cap

    I think my favorite of those would be Barbary Coast.

    I just got the email saying shipment wil be here tomorrow for first order placed on Saturday night. Hoping the order I placed last night will also be here then. Tomorrows order wil have my pipes and a few tins. After ordering all of that last night I said "self, where are you putting all of this?" so today along with going out for more mason jars gonna look for a nice cabinet to store my stash. I also forgot that I have 10 pounds of bulk tobacco coming in for my RYO as well. My bride is gonna kill me. Lmao. :p

    As grafikchaos said, you'll be glad you got Westminster. It's one of my favorite English blends around. I've got two or three tins sitting in the cellar.

    Now, I've noticed a tendency for this forum to get rather silly.

    My question now is this...
    I know with my bulk I am going to break it up into carton size jars for my RYO 8oz per jar gives me 1 carton. 10lbs = 20 jars so I am set there. But when it comes to the tins, I know I am going to want to try each one. So my question is; Do I just open up each tin and just get them Jared all at once? Spend the hour or so jarring and getting it over with, or should I just wait and every day as I try a new one, open it then jar? I bought 2 of the Mac B HH limited so I can have one to try and keep the autographed tin for my self, and the other just going to keep cellared in opened for a later trade or sale in a few years.

    Side note, all of the suggestions that were made after I placed my order are on my next TAD list.

    I am by no means and expert on jarring. If it were me, just leave the tins you plan on trying later on alone. I wouldn't worry about jarring anything until after you've tried it. If it's a tobacco that just sings to you, then let it sit in the tin while you enjoy it over the next several days or weeks. If it's a tobacco that you don't really care for, jar it immediately after trying, and let it age some. Go back to it after 6 months or a year (or longer) and see if your tastes have changed or if aging has helped. If you're in the middle with it, then give the tobacco a couple of more tries, before deciding if it's going to be a regular or a save for later. And finally, if it is a tobacco you really like, be sure to order more, just in case.
