I've seen several thread about aging tobacco and the difference it could make.
Are there certain tobaccos the NEED to be aged before enjoying?
Still new and am getting out of PAD and into TAD.

I found a bag of a local B&M "Vanilla" blend that I had stored in my cigar humidor for about the last 2 or 3 years and found it smoked really well and was better than I remmebered.
What method did you use to cure yourself of the dreaded "PAD" ?
I am still afflicted with both PAD and TAD.................

The general rule of the thumb on here is that it makes sense to age primarily English tobaccos, because they will mellow out and change flavors with time. Supposedly, aging aromatics is pointless because they tend to not change significantly with time. However, I'm not to the point where I'm trying to age anything, nor have I tasted the difference between an aged tobacco and a new tobacco. This is just what I've derived from being on here and I have no clue what I'm talking about really. :D

I agree with grafikchaos... It's of little use to age tobacco with any topping/flavoring. Now lots of smokers

like cherries and chocolate, but it's the straight tobacco's that benefit from aging.

I've purchased a lot of bulk tobaccos and aged them. The only instance where I deemed the whole process worthwhile was with McClelland's 5100 Va red cake. The Virginia's I've aged darkened and became more caramel-like in taste, but I've decided that I like them "younger".

@ big mike

Running out of money, I just won a 1965 Dunhill from eBay that broke the bank. (guess when i was born?)
Got a TAD delivery today of 5 aromatics and it was only $31.00.
