    How long will they keep in mason jars and still be good?

    I have not cellared bulk aros but have read that the toppings/ flavorants fade over the years. Of course, it's one of those "it depends" things I suspect. The underlying tobaccos would continue to age. Having said that, I have tinned Peterson aros with > 5 years on them & they are very good. I don't believe well-stored bulk should be much different if it's packed fairly tight.

    It depends on the maker BB. I have tins of Nording's Hunter Blends aros that are 6-7 years old that still taste fresh when popped open. But I have had Boswell's loose all flavor even tightly jarred in less than a month.

    Good to know- glad I read this thread.
    I have 4 ounces of Boswell's en route from an order placed Mon.
    I has going to cellar 1/2 of it- guess I'll have to swap it ;)

    I have some cherry blend from a local tobacco shop, (probably a Lane blend), from 1995. It still tastes like a cherry blend.:th1:

    My Mac Baren Cherry Ambrosia has been jarred for about 8 months. I dip into it occasionally and it still tastes like cherry.

    I guess I'll be the contrarian here. I have cellared Boswell aromatics for over a year in Ball jars with no problems, specifically No Bite Delite and PA Dutch Treat. They still had their original taste and freshness.
