Now I need to know..........how do I store pipe tobacco??? I don't think storing it with my cigars is a good idea.

I have a 75 count that I am not using should I reseason it and store the tobacco in that???
Whatever you do, don't store pipe tobacco in a cigar humidor or you can kiss it goodbye as a cigar humi...I did that with a small humi intending to only keep it there for a few days...just a few sample baggies of different pipe tobaccos...forgot about it for several months...when I remembered it the humi reeked of pipe tobacco and I'm still trying to get the smell out after using baking soda, and then activated charcoal...got most of the smell out but it needs another go with the activated charcoal again before even thinking about putting cigars back in it...there are several sites where you can buy these little button humidifiers that you use with pg solution...drop one in each tin or bag of tobacco...also Iwan Ries has these little bricks that you do the same with...they're a little bigger so I use them with larger bags and tins...

The 75 ct will likely never have cigars in it again. I have a 4500 count aristocrat that will serve fine for that.

I am thinking of using my 75ct for my pipe tobacco and just not humidify it. Also since all the tobacco is in tins or bags will it be ok to store the pipes in there as well?

Thanks to all for being patient with all my questions

Just my opinion based on what I did, but all the tobaccos seemed to blend flavors...when I went to taste them they all seemed about the same but these were in plastic baggies...in tins I guess it would be okay...dunno if I'd stash my pipes in the same place as they need to dry out between smokes and I think sticking them in a humi would impede their drying...you can get an inexpensive rack on ebay...

you want to keep your pipes out in open so that the air can help keep the pipes smelling and tasting fresh. think about how a stale cigar smells when it's kept in a car or such, your pipe will have a similar smell if you keep them in a closed space. I don't even like to keep mine in my pipe bag for too long

word.
when i travel, i put my pipes in their pipe bags, then fit 2 of them in each pipe box, then it goes in a travel humi (use to be used for cigars). by the time i'm done with a herf, the pipe bags/boxes stink.

Invest in some nice candles, I always light one after I finished smoking, takes care of the odor while they dry

I'd like to say that this thread has been a fascinating and informative read. However, one slope is bad enough. Therefore, I am placing all of you on ignore. That is all.

Just finshed a bowl of Davidoff Scottish blend that Fox sent in my starter kit. Ummmmmm good!! Now trying a bowl of squadron Leader from Samuel Gawith. Very nice, not as strong as I expected based on how it smells in the tin. Damn this is fun!

Good choice Al. The Davidoff Scottish mixture is one of my favorites.

With the threat of new, higher taxes for pipe baccy I think I need to order a few tins.
