Brigham when R.Will was blending for them he created Klondike Gold and I loved it so I went real deep within a couple of weeks I had 150 plus tins. I was in a battle with Peck after he bought the first hundred before he told me the dick was holding out on me.

Planta when they used to make some of the Fribourg& Treyer blends. Cut Virginia Plug and Special Brown Flake and I think Vintage Flake, This was I think close to 20 years ago.
Rotary they only made one blend called Rotary Cut and I fell in love right away. I began buying really deep as I figured any brand that had only one blend was going to go by the of of the dodo. I was right and a few years or more ago it was discontinued and I had over 150 tins when it shit the bed.
I have one Mc Clelland blend called Butera Royal Vintage: Dark Stoved. I got the inside info they were going out of business so I grabbed 140 tins.
Escudo with some being 2001,2008 and 2012. I have a lot of those also as I didn't trust them going out either.

All of the above are cellared deep and I don't consider consider anything with less that 20 tins to be cellared somewhat deep. I consider 50 tins a decent amount and 100 tins sellared deep. In my bulk tins I consider 10-14 pounds cellared deep.
For example I have a couple of pounds SG Kendal Plug but it isn't deep.

Well that is the list I came up with that I have a good amount of. I have tried tons more but they didn't stick and I no longer smoke any English blends so all of those brands I didn't count.

I am comfortable with the amount of blends I enjoy. I do not like having any blends in my cellar that I don't smoke through on a fairly regular basis. Some weeks I forget a blend I haven't had for example, I haven't smoke any Hamborger Veermaster in a month so it is time to crack a tin. That is how it usually goes with me. I forget I have something and then I will remember it and then enjoy it for a week or two.

So what you're trying to say is that you don't like pipe tobacco much. :LOL:

SG & GH and on this I include also the Synjeco which are made by GH.

For English and Oriental I still say McClelland as I have a stash of them and I am covered even if they closed the operation.

I third that! Those 2 are what I have most in my cellar.
I think a lot of people might overlook Peterson (except the Dunhills) which is nice because they're always in stock. Irish Oak is a solid Va/Per, Balkan Delight is very good, Hyde Park is a good Va/Bur broken flake that used to be made by GH (or SG...not sure which), Irish Flake is a classic, etc.
I'm a little cross with them for abandoning Durbar though.
