I just drop all of my pipes into a tall, gleaming glass jar of Barbicide and let them pickle until my next smoke. It gives even the cheapest of tobaccos the hearty tang of hospital-grade disinfectant. Mmmmm, alkyl dimethylbenzyl ammonium chloride...

I thought I saw a more recent thread with this topic, but I will post here. It's impossible to see all the tobacco, as it's all jammed in one of the shelves here in the hallway closet, which stays a more even temperature year round. Anyway, this is my store house of pipe tobacco I have accumulated since February 2016.

Lots of tins of stuff I like and lots of bulk tobacco in more than 48 Kerr 1/2 pint jars in the back (Kerr boxes stack well, too). The large box in the upper left is packed full with 25 tins of McClelland Aurora and Tudor Castle. The most tins I have of any one tobacco are of Dunhill Flake. 21. Next McConnell Scottish Flake. The most bulk I have in jars are Peter Stokkebye Luxury Twist Flake, John Bull, McClelland 5100 Red Cake, McClelland 5115 Old World Classic Cake, & Dunhill Nightcap. There will soon be more jars of Gawith Hogarth bulk flake I have come to relish.

Yeah. Except for some GH Flake and samples, haven't gotten anything else since last fall.

When I open this closet door, it smells like Rattray's Stirling Flake. But all the tins are sealed. I checked them yesterday.

That hallway closet cellar is really the only organized and tidy area of the house. I like to look at this picture because it represents the order I most desire, but do not otherwise care to maintain.

If it smells then something is open. Check them all again. Find it. The clock is ticking.
This is the downside of a growing cellar. Fermenting in a press sealed tin will usually pop the seal and produce the scent. After a while it all seems to stop or stabilize. I found that if I taped the tins into large stacks that these "goose hunts" were less frequent too.

I decided to take a picture of part of my cellar: Image

That is about 1/4 of my cellar, give or take. I bought most of it about 3 years ago. I suppose if the wife and I ever need money in a hurry I can sell it for quite a bit.

Yeah... a lot of Penzance, Stonehaven, Peacehaven, Margate, and Pembroke in there. It's mostly Penzance and Stonehaven.

I have 55 tins of McClelland (most of it VA-Per) here in my McClelland "cellar" and also Five, larger 3.5 ounce tins of their St. James Woods VA-Per in my hall closet cellar.

The Aurora (upper right in the back) I have 10 tins of. It is a ready rubbed, awesome pure sweet Virginia blend with incredible depth and dimension. Wish I had more than 10 tins, but I have a small house.
