I have had a tin of Reiner light aromatic (green label) unopened in my pipe cabinet since 2000 I believe it came from Pipes and Pleasures based on the label on the underside. I have been lately completely unsatisfied with my aromatic blends. Tastes are changing I guess. I can only say wow its amazing what 12 years will do for a tobacco. The virginias and burleys have settled down very nicely and it gives a clean sweet smoke that almost makes me wish I had used my Meer to fully enjoy the moment. I sat on the fence along time before breaking the seal on this one but now am glad I did. I'm just sad that once its gone I can not get another tin to taste like this until 2023.
