My humble suggestion... Do not count on plastic bags and cellophaned thick paper boxes to properly store your purchase...

I agree, I always open any tobacco that's boxed or shipped in plastic bags and jar what ever I'm not going to smoke within a 30 day period. I've never had any issues with mold in my jarred tobacco's. The suggestion of wearing latex/rubber gloves is something I always do, especially if your blending tobacco's. I'd much rather keep germs and the oils from my skin out of my long term aging process.

KEEP ON PUFFING!!!

Lords Wiz & Coyote: I hear you, mates. The thing is, I have an issue with long term storage in Mason jars.
I don't believe in it. It's a visceral thing ; I can't help it. Embarassed

I've done the Mason jar routine since '10 or earlier and have yet to experience a problem. And I haven't gone to any great lengths either - used my bare hands, and just screwed the lids down tight. FWIW.



Cheers,

RR

I literally had a nightmare last night that involved the pictures of the moldy FVF posted in here.  Terrifying.

Now I'm semi-nervous about my stash.  It does dawn on me that a particular online vendor owns C&D which is known to have had fairly regular mold issues and I'm half wondering if that could cross-contaminate with other blends, or worse, is due to the warehouse somehow.  I highly doubt either is the case but like I said, those pictures gave me straight up nightmares.

And oh yeah, I've added a large stockpile of SG flakes to my cellar this year, most recently just last week, right about when the original poster here got his Shocked

I hear you......

I just went through the stash/cellar yesterday. So far, so good....

As I understand it, only the C&D tinned offerings have had reported mold issues, and that would be in manufacturing, not a sealed tin poorly stored. I haven't heard anything more regarding other 250 gm. boxes being moldy lately, so perhaps it is a singular occurrence restricted to that specific batch?

One can hope. I've NEVER had Gawith blends go moldy. C&D is the only manufacturer I've personally had that has molded. Hopefully it stays that way.
