I have a question about storage...

...If you have tobacco stored in a mason jar, (for example Dunhill Morning pipe since 2/2016, or Frog Morton since 8/2011), and then buy more today, do you store it with the old stuff if it fits in the jar or do you put it in a new jar? I would like to put it in a new jar, but I am running out of room for all the tobacco jars I have. What do you guys do? Do you mix the old with the new? I really don't want to do that, or does it not matter?

As you describe your situation, it matters. You need to get new jars for new batches, and accurately label with receive date.

The only time it does not matter is what I call the 3 month rule. If you purchase the same tobacco no longer then 3 months apart, you can store these same tobaccos in the same jar. This is my rule, not a written rule.

Yeah, get some more jars.
If you open a jar, air gets in and interrupts the aging process.
