I recall it being a very stout, basic burley blend.

Your recollection is spot on.

Very nice slow sipper.

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?

It goes into a jar immediately. Tins don't seal perfectly, and tobacco in a ziplock will dry out in a week or two.

Stan, tastes differ. Some like me, smoke their tobacco as wet as it comes. Some dry it. Some like it crispy dry.

I open a tin and smoke it in a few days, so it stays in the tin. Some people take months or years and jar it up.

You do you. I have a few jars, too.

You finish a tin in a couple days?! You must smoke all day everyday... it takes me on average a month if I smoke the same tobacco the entire month, but usually a tin lasts me 3-12 months because I like to mix it up and smoke many different things...

Thanks for the input. It took me about year of on again off again smoking to finish up the Nightcap, Sasieni and the Royal Yacht which I kept in the tins. Maybe my taste buds are pretty much shot from smoking cigarettes in my youth and dipping Copenhagen. So I couldn't really tell any degradation of the flavours. It's complicated. But I think I will jar up these Mac Barren tobaccos after I open them. It certainly can't hurt anything. I always jar any bulk tobaccos I get immediately.

I usually taste the varying richness of different tobaccos rather than the nuances. Occasionally I'll get a hint of something, fig, chocolate, nuttines, whatever depending on what I am smoking but usually it's just an overall richness that increases as I smoke the bowl down. Sort of like the way a rich blend of coffee smells when I open the bag at first. It's odd I know and I used to think that I would develop a palate and be able to discern all these flavors if I smoked long enough but it never really happened and I have been smoking a pipe for decades. Mostly I have smoked the OTC brands though so maybe there is still hope for me. At any rate I am content.
