  • This was one of the most interesting and informative shows of the past few months. So many good and useful ideas for cellaring, that I’m sure will advance the experience of both the newbie and the old fart.
    I really enjoyed this episode. Thanks.
    And, my best wishes to the show hosts and listeners for a Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday season!

  • It was a very good episode with two guys swapping stories on how to cellar tobacco. Very informative, but as always with tobacco it shows there is more than one way to skin a cat.
    Hope everyone has a Merry & Safe Christmas.

  • I feel so inadequate because you ‘boys’ speak of 5 and up to 20 year spans to wait for optimum ‘maturity’ of your special blends.
    When I began smoking a pipe, I felt I’d be unfortunate to LIVE another 5 years.
    I was feeling seriously stressful physical symptoms, hadn’t smoked anything (used to smoke Drum RYO) in 4 yrs and lit up again only to find pipes and pipe tobacco a yr later.
    Happily, my health took a turn for the better, and pipe smoking was along for the ride.
    Still, for me, a 5 yr tobacco storage plan seems optimistic or presumptive, rather like investing in art to pass on to my heirs.
    I’ll be happy to ‘pass on’ a world that still produces naturally occurring ice. (best stored in a cool dry place)
    Happy New Year!

  • Great show. I was happy to hear Shane Ireland grow a bit into a hosting role and it didn’t sound sales oriented at all this time. Thanks for bringing back the Twisted Sister Christmas album. I regret that I wasn’t smoking a pipe back when prices were better, cellaring is getting more and more difficult. Being late to the game has its disadvantages.
