Brunello's query was taken from another thread and I've been off and on thinking about it since I read the original post. As do many, I have far too much tobacco on hand. I'm personally averse to using the word "cellared" because that, for me, speaks to smoking the well aged tobacco in the distant future. At my age, aging tobacco for several years is impractical. I am fairly certain that when I die, my daughters will throw away all the remaining pipe tobacco and donate my extensive cigar collection to Cigars for Warriors.

I've just been wondering why there isn't more sustained interest in the topic?
I began blending pipe tobacco in search of the one blend that will satisfy me every time I smoke.
For me, it's no longer about having a variety of blends. I did that for years. I can't count the number of times, I've purchased a blend only to think, "Well, Steve, that was $$$ thrown away."
It's probably just a quirk in my personality, because in foods and beverages I'm always seeking new flavors and products.
I just want that one blend that I will enjoy every time I smoke. (And I'm really close.)
