Hello all,

I've bought a few tins of Escudo specifically for aging. What's the general concensus for length of aging before sampling to get the best out of my purchase?

Thanks,

Tim

I would say minimum 5 years for a good aging but, I would think in 2 years you'll find a pleasant surprise in it. Wink

If you're adventurous, impatient or both, you might try stoving one of the tins to see if the results are something you can enjoy while waiting for the paint to dry.

It'll just keep getting better. About a year ago I popped a fourteen-year-old tin (the A.C. Petersen version, of course), and it was sublime.

I would imagine Ron would have some wisdom on this topic. Personally, good Virginias, the longer the better. It's more about how long I can hold out.

We'll see won't we, cause I have some stashed but, for only about a year now. At least I'll have something to look forward to when I reach 66........maybe.
And as far as being pickled, I was long before Escudo but, that's another story isn't it. Wink

I heard someone say something silly about Escudo and it inspired that line just because I thought the wording was funny. I was curious if anyone would take notice. Turns out, about one a day. So perhaps if Escudo has any effect on its fans it's making them sharper.

Thanks for the responses people. As long as I've got other tobacco to smoke, I'm sure I can be patient. Wink I think I'll crack one open in two years and another in five. Now I begin to see the point in a tobacco tasting diary.

Cheers,

Tim

If you buy and cellar a tin a month right now, you'll have a 5 year old tin - every month, 5 years from now!
