I was just reviewing my cellar and since I started last 08/2014 and hit it hard, 54% of my tobacco is at least 1 year old and by next year when I retire 75% will be 2 years or older. I am looking good for some nice retirement pipe smoking.

I lost track. lol
I started out keeping track but then it all went to hell.
I would have to say the bulk is 2 to 5 years.
I started it in 2013 and worked on it hard that year- so 2 years is average.
Average? Right now, about a year. That runs from a few weeks old to over 20 years.
Only about a year, since that's around when I started smoking a pipe
Well some of the bones down there are ready to be turned into pipes right now. The ones I want to grind down and smoke, need another few years on them.
2 days. I just started mine.
Majority of mine is 10+ years.
4-5 years old.
one month
25% of mine is a little under two years old. Purchased a large amount of plug/cake tobacco in tins and a truck load of H&H signatures 8oz tins this year.
To be honest I think I purchased way too many aromatics for the cellar this year.
That's ok though, gives me the opportunity to get excited about next year's Vaginia plugs and Black frigate PAD. YAHOOO!
I put away a bit of tobacco, primarily McClelland Brown and Black Label between 1999 and 2005. It is beginning to pay dividends.

Almost all my leaf is around a year old. A few tins are a little older and a few are a little younger.
15% over 3 years old
46% over 2 years old
28% over 1 year old
What's left is younger. Clearly my cellaring has slowed down...
About 6 months.
Why has peck not chimed in? My start of a cellar is 3 pouches captain black and an oz of stonehaven courtesy of sablebrush, average age of 6 months.
Most of my tobacco is well under a year old...Except for a few tins of "vintage" tobacco to help bump up my average... so on average I'd say perhaps 1.2yrs
We making a betting pool on Pecks inventory? I hope someday to be able to refer my cellar is "inventory" and have a barcode scanner to track it and it's age
About 6 years.
About half of mine is 5 years old and I do have some McClelland 5100 that is going on 9 years.
March of 2016 will be three years. I stockpiled in 2013.
The average age of my cellar is about 5 years, give or take.
Half a year to about a year--only because I am a seasonal smoker
Most of it falls in the 6-8 year average, with a few vintage tins of '80s Three Nuns and Bengal Slices and a darned odd aromatic Charatan tin made in West Germany.
just started, mines is about 3 month old, hoping to start a big collection soon
No reason to speculate about Peck's ultramundo cellar

Thanks guys for the info, very interesting. Yea, I wonder about pecks's myself.
You guys kill me. Yep, that's from tobacco cellar. I use the date on which I received the blend. Some of the stuff is obviously older based on when it was tinned but I don't chase the dating on the tin, except for a few old things like some Christmas Cheer I bought. In 99% of the case I just use the date from when I put it in my cellar. Recently I opened a tin of JKP, for example, which based on my marking was 2.5 yrs old, but when I looked at the date sticker it was in fact from 2011 and so was a bit older. Most of my stash was bought in 2013.
Duly noted.
Aside from the single tin of 30 year old Balkan Sobranie most of my cellar is 2-3 years old. Plenty for the tobacco apolyse to come...
Over 10 years- 17%
Over 5 years- 17%
Over 4 years- 11%
Over 3 years- 16%
Over 2 years- 28%
Over 1 year- 6%
Less than 6 months- 6%
It should be noted that 53% of my cellar that are between 5 and 18 years of age, consists of Straight Virginia blends, or Virginia Burley blends. Most of the Lat blends and semi aromatics just don't need a lot of age before they marry sufficiently.

The logistics are skewed. I have three bowls a day, except Sunday's which can be 2 or 4 which means three a day in averages. On the verge of finishing FVF, Uni flake. three not mentioned that are open (thank you to Deathmetal for sharing are habana daydream, hellhammer, and Newminster 403)
Seems a lot of us, myself included, have stuff that is two years at the oldest end.
Summer 2013 is when I got into this, but this has been a slow year for me as far as pipe smoking goes. Haven't made much time for it and with winter already set in I probably won't get any pipe smoking in unless it's an odd somewhat warm day.
I did not discover the joys of tobacco collecting until 2011, when I joined this forum. About half of my stash is over 2 years old, and half of those over 3 years. A smidge are over 5, 10, 15, and one tin over 20.
10 years and older I've been overbuying 4 or 6oz once or twice a week along with tins and an occasional sleeve at shops since I started in the hobby. I went on a binge and mail ordered a few bags in the mid 2000's. Unfortunately I never dated my vac pac bags as I accumulated them so when I decided to to jar the tobacco I didn't know what was from 1987 or 2009 so I just mixed and jarred them up.
