    I probably have 40 or 50 open, something like a dozen or so I like enough to finish the tin in the next 6 months or so. Lots just get parked because they aren't quite as good as something else.

    I have 54 jars in my rotation, and yes, I smoke, and enjoy them all. It takes a while, but they all get smoked at least once or twice a month. I tend to reach for about 20 or so on a fairly regular basis.
    There are probably another 20-25 blends in the cellar that aren't in the rotation.
    Guess that makes 75-80 blends total. As I understand it, there are a few thousand different blends available, not counting "house blends". T-Reviews lists 3,690, and I'm sure that ain't all that's available. Looks like I've got a ways to go.....

    You people disgust me. Wait, I mean amaze. I didn't realize ADD was a common thread here! I would love to rip open every last untried blend in my cellar, but even I'm reluctant to do that. I admire you guys for your lack of restraint! One day, maybe one day...

    I have a lot that I have not tried, I trade with a few guys. Once we got to know each others taste it was really fun. If I buy something and I think someone will enjoy it, ill send a sample and they do the same, its a great way to sample a vast amount of tobaccos without spending a lot of cash.

    There seems to be a big craze right now about Park Lanes Red Paramour. I was at the Chicago show and Paul the owner of Park Lane, gave me a tin.

    I LOVED it and bought a lb. I sent samples to friends and it started snowballing from there, now its the talk on a lot of forums and sales have skyrocketed.

    I have about fifty open jars in the den, and about fifty pounds of my ten or so favorites in the basement. I am just hedging against future shortages.

    I have over 30 blends (beginner, like to try it all :eek:hyeah:), not all opened, though.
    However, I gave many of my tins to my friends, there is always blend that someone else would like if you don't remember that!
    I'm considering to keep and store in the cellar around 15 favorites and that's it...

    Well I have over 300 tins of various VA's, English's, Balkan's and aromatics. Also I have about 40 pounds of bulk in mason jars. At times when I stand back and look at my cellar I think the amount I have has gone from insane to assanine.

    Sometime after the first of the year im gonna send out some samples to share with the rest of the world. I have some special stuff in my collection that some folks here would be interested in trying, especially the newer pipe smokers.
