@Moonshae, the advantage of jarring up the different genres of tobacco in their ziplocks, as Nathan @OneStrangeOne suggested, is that you can preserve them for future smoking if you don't immediately like them. You may find that a blend that doesn't speak to you at first will taste great sometime later as you get more experience. The two Captain Black pouches are probably a good place to start to develop your technique and your pipe palate. Dino @UBC03 certainly gave you a lot to work with, including those two great pipes. Enjoy!

Thanks, I understand the purpose of jarring, I just didn't know how much the flavors would mingle if jarred together. Is there a list somewhere of genres so I can figure out which can go together?

If you want to know what the blend type of each tobacco is, if you go to tobaccoreviews, and search up one of your blends, it'll bring up info. You'll see "blend type." For a list of what each blend type is all about, instead of me linking a site, I'd say search up "pipe tobacco blend types" and look at 4 or 5 sites, so you can join us at the bottom of the rabbit hole of tobacco knowledge



Once you have that info, make sure to keep each "aromatic" tobacco in its own, separate jar. Maybe keep anything with latakia in one jar, separate from others? And definitely keep everything in their bags, which I'm sure goes without saying. If it were me, and since you have large samples, I'd probably just get everything it's own jar. Grab a box of jars at the store.
