I opened some Captain Black the other day and I liked it. Sue me.

The mailman just delivered two tins of Mac Barren, one of Dark Fired Burley and one of Burley Flake. I have never bought many tins, I had a tin of Royal Yacht, a tin of Dunhill Nightcap and Balkan Sasieni. All three of those stayed in the tins for over a year as I smoked them up and although they dried a little out over the months, it didn't seem to hurt them to me. So I was wondering, do you guys keep your tinned tobacco in the tin once you open it or do you put it in jars?

I've smoked it before. I wish it tasted and smoked as good as it smells. I wonder how many pouches of CB have been smelled, then bought and had one pipeful smoked out of them and then trashed. Some people love it though. Everybody is different which is a great thing because this world would be unbelievably bland and boring if everybody was just like me.

I like it, although I prefer the bulk (RLP-6).

Oh I hadn't heard of that one before. I've enjoyed lots of 1Q in bulk. Might get some of this!

The last tin I opened was Old Dark Fired Kentucky Flake but I ordered these from the Pipe Nook yesterday.

Peterson's Sunset Breeze and these C&D blends: Jackknife Plug, Big 'N' Burley, Stovepipe.

I also ordered two pipes, both are unfinished Savinellis, a Series III 622 KS Bent Billiard Large Non-Filtered and a Series III 707 KS Slightly Bent Billiard Tri-Shank Large Non-Filtered.
