Hi guys, I just got several "tins" of plum pudding delivered and was wondering about long term storage of them as the tins are cardboard lined with aluminium foil with a ring pull top rather than the cat food type metal tins that say GLP blends come in. Specifically I'm worried that they won't be airtight.

Does anyone here have experience with these types of tobacco tins and long term storage?

I'm happy to open them all and jar it up if needed.

Thanks

Tim

The paper is foil lined so I wouldn't worry too much about it. Over the years I have had several H&H & Sutliff tins and I have had no problems with them. You could always ask Sutliff what their recommendation is. They tin the SPC stuff.

Thanks DnB for allaying my concerns, thinking about it, I suppose they wouldn't put Pringles in similar containers if they weren't airtight.

Cheers

Plum Pudding and Mississippi River and the other SPC tins are made of cardboard? Shocked

I ordered a couple PP and MR, the other day. My issue is not so much the cardboard itself but will the tobacco age as well, if it's cardboard lined with alu, than it would in a traditional tin?

My PP tins must be older because they're exactly like GLP tins. In any case, Russ himself recommends aging those types of tins no longer than 3 years, and he still was not even sure about that when I talked to him last about it.

Timbo, I don't know about the tins Plum Pudding comes in. The only similar tins I have in my cellar (foil-lined cardboard) are the tubs of ERR that were discontinued, which I bought around the same date of its demise (2008, I think). They all look okay, integrity wise, and the tobacco is good (I opened a can last year). I don't know how long these cans will last and will keep a close eye on them. They are a bit puffy, which is natural if you live up in the Rockies, but which also provides a way to check if they're loosing pressure due to leakage. I hope this helps...

C&D tinned those. I wasn't aware that Sutliff is now tinning it, if indeed that be the case.

If Sutliff used to tin the Hearth & Home stuff, it is likely they're doing SPC's stuff now too.

Thanks, bro. I will tag them for 2 years from now, just to be sure.
