    Yeah, it was sad story. I believe the rust came about in between the lining and the tin. That would tear me to pieces of I opened a tin of tobacco I had aging specifically to smoke and it was ruined! It may sound silly, but I plan to only smoke my Blackwoods Flake on my daughters birthday. (Not...

    I just read a story on pipe studs website about a McClelland Tin rusting. I’m not terribly upset about resale value, as this is in my top 5 favorite blends, that I’m certain I will enjoy for years to come. To boot, I also have a tin of Navy Cavendish, and a tin of No. 25 Virginia from ‘06 and...

    Ok! Phew. I actually knew that when opening the tins it’d slow that process, but I read a couple of horror stories about guys cracking those tins and finding rust on the inside or appearing to be sealed and not being sealed... I keep a close eye on my cellar, and thoroughly inspect the rings and...

    Some TAD reported in Blighty

    Yet, that was one very vivid and borderline artistic description that made me desperately want to sample a blend I’ve never even thought twice about! ;) You’re the man! Glad you enjoyed your haul! Zach

    My cellar and questions

    Hey thanks Conrad, that puts me to ease a bit! It’s actually half of a kitchen cupboard my wife suggested I use! It fits it all, for now! Zach

    My cellar and questions

    Heya! Thought I’d post a picture of my cellar while hopefully getting some opinions and questions answered. So I thought I was doing everything right in taking my tins of exactly the same, (or close to) ages, popping them open and jarring them. I use quart wide mouth jars and can fit roughly...

    A great TAD week

    Thanks Gents! I believe this’ll keep me held over for a bit. I’m posting a picture of my whole cellar in the dedicated cellar thread in a second here with some attached questions! Zach

    A great TAD week

    Earlier this week a co-worker stopped at a shop where she was at for a day trip and scored me a tin of Orlik DSK, and a 8oz. bag of Esoterica Peacehaven! Now just today my wife, daughter and I took a drive and I scored; (3) tins of Dunhill Dark Flake (3) tins of Dunhill Durbar (1) tin of...
