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.

A 100g tin of Old Gowrie, last weekend. A first, but hopefully not my last tin of this blend. I dig it.

A 100 g tin of 2017 McClelland 40th Anniversary, poured out on a plate for 20 minutes and will repeat over the next week, every other day or so, to stop the fermentation process.

Just curious - why do you want to stop the fermentation process?

Because fermenting tobacco tastes bland & harsh. Tobacco while in the tin, aging, is dumb. It needs new oxygen to open up and become sublime.

I just found the old 4 year aged Haddo's Delight thread. Skimming this was quite the illuminating experience. :|

Yeah, I see Mr. Jocose Popularity dug back and resurrected that 2-year-old thread. The man doesn't appear to have any real convictions or even experiences of his own. He just likes to align himself with whoever appears to be winning at the time.
