I cannot disagree with your disagreement but I did say english blends "tend" not to show great improvement, not that they do never improve. (I've enjoyed Sobranie and some Barry Levin stuff that was spectacular after 10-20 years in the can I've seem more latakia appear to hold, or lose, ground in my short viewing span of five-eight years.) This would be something interesting to discuss in depth in a new thread, if you would. -moo

well... no not really, as far as the aging is concerned

The point was more that, for smaller amounts, these are easy access, and maintain a good seal.

but when you introduce new air, and release the previously sealed, fermenting air (for lack of a better term as the air itself is not actually fermenting), you are essentially starting over.

Although, if you have really stuffed the jar tight, then perhaps the tobaccos towards the bottom won't be so much affected.

I'm not entirely sure, but it was more of an access thing and convenience, than aging apparatus

Gotcha. Not good for cellaring, but good for keeping from drying out.

Default Re: More Questions :) What is Cellaring

should tins be sealed in some other airtight container or are they air tight themselves?

Are the tins dated or do they need labeling

on bulk tobacco you mention mason jars, does light impact tobacco as in should they be aged in the dark?

Thank you

if the tin is still sealed, it's sealed, no need for airtight containers

only tins made by McClelland and C&D are dated (that includes GL pease, PCCA, Hearth and Home, etc, whoever does the making of the blend and tins it, if it was C&D or McClelland, it will have a date stamp on the bottom - they do it differently from each other) C&D tins are a mo/day/year stamping; McClellands are a blend#/batch/yr stamping

not that i know of.

Thank you

I dont think I would use them for aging. They do keep the moisture over a long period of time compared to just leaving it in the tin. For someone like myself who takes a decent amount of time to finish a tin, they are very nice. Also, I keep a few of them on my desk with tobacco in them. they look decent enough to leave laying around, and for the price (2-3$) they are well worth it. When I finish a tin, I just wash them out with some soapy water let them dry out, then crack open a new tin and put the contents into the glass jar.
