So I received a tin of Union Square for Christmas cheers

But it's undated scratch

Any idea as to why or when the tinning might have been? For now I just wrote 12-12 on it Very Happy

In this case only a veteran smoker of VAs, fresh and aged, can give an estimate of when it was tinned. Send it to me:

Wrap it up, mail it to Yak an he can inspect it strand by flake and tell you just exactly what is in your tin and the date to the day when it was made, from the day the leaf was planted all the way through till YOU got it! He's our resident Union Square guru Twisted Evil

Union Square: Great fresh, amazing with a few years, exponentially huge with a few more. I was able to get two tins with seven years' age on 'em. Boy howdy. When those are gone, I'm gonna be piiiiiiissed. Laughing Solution? Smoke slow and add more tins over time.

The choice is yours; you can't lose.

Cool

Eff me, I wish. I love the stuff, but lactose intolerance and a weird reaction to alcohol lately means I'm doing this mothereffer sober. No

...BUT...I have my pipe, and it's consoling me.

Split the difference and call it "Early 2011" or "Late 2010" Razz

Normally, if I don't know the date, I just pick the month/year I got the stuff in my hot little hands, and mark it accordingly like you did.

What likely happened is the date/batch label fell off or got omitted. For some time, C&D/Pease used a stamping system that indelibly inked on this info, but later went to stickers, from what I can tell, around 2010 (unconfirmed...)--so yeah, it's anyone's guess. Smile Just open it and smoke it already. Laughing
