Hey fella's

I would love to hear from any of you what bulk tobaccos you like and think are good candidates for aging and cellaring in mason jars.

Let the cellaring begin = )

Thanks,
Thor

I've been reading (and listening) a LOT on this very subject. Although I'm a newbie, I keep reading/hearing that VA's age best due to sugar content, followed closely by VaPer's. Burley's apparently don't change much over time although may "meld" some with the other baccy in the blend. Lat's fade; as do orientals. Not sure about Turkish.

In the end, I've just started but am cellaring: Bulk: H&H AK, PS LTF/LBF/LNF, SG BBF/SJF/FVF, McClelland's #2015. Tins: Escudo and OGS. I buy Leo and Presbyterian when I can.

I've recently started stocking up on C&D's Bayou Morning and Night Train. I think BM will be spectacular with a few years age on it. And Night Train is so good, who wouldn't want a pile of it on hand?

Kickin' Chicken does pretty well I've heard:whis:

I'd say cellar anything you like now that is available in bulk, just in case. For current value, I have cellared a bunch of Peter Stokkeby stuff that I like now, along with tins of my favorites and/or hard to find blends.

Sounds like the start of a nice cellar

I'm trying :) I got a great start to figure out what I like from folks on this forum. HUGE help in the decision process. Then I started a spreadsheet with tabs for each "type": VA, VaPer, VaBur, VaPer/Cav etc. On those tabs I list what tobacco's I've tried and my thoughts/likes/dislikes upon smoking them. Not just once, but the first several times because I've noticed my observations on tobacco's I'm just trying for the first time change on the 2nd or 3rd bowl. If I don't like it by the 3rd bowl, I'm not cellaring it. I may like it later but my previous post is what I can afford to do right now.

That same spreadsheet also lists the baccy's I have in my cellar, where I bought them, how much per oz/lb, and when I bought them. This all may sound anal etc but I know myself and don't want to forget what I have, be able to prove it to insurance folks if need be, and lastly it helps me know what to buy next. Right now, it's easy: everything I can get my hands on and afford! Pipes will always be available and won't get taxed out the wazoo; baccy: different story.

Some English, some VA's, some Va/per, some burley, some OTC. Cellar what ever you like, and cellar what you think you may like twenty years down the line. Tastes change!
