Over the years I have kept my loose tobacco the way you would see it at the tobacconist. I place the jars on a shelf in the closet and when I feel a notion for a certain tobacco I take a bowl or two out and seal the jar back up. I know some of those jars sit on the shelf for a decent amount of time and are opened off and on depending on what their customers buy. I haven't had any issues doing things this way with no real over drying problem, I like to let my tobacco get fairly dry anyway. I realize now reading through here I am likely not getting the benefit of the aging process. I don't smoke all that often, usually a few times a week, and it's hard for me to anticipate what I will want to smoke and often change my mind. So my question is, is there anything wrong with continuing to do things the way I have? Or am I doing myself a disservice by not allowing these to stay sealed undisturbed?

As long as youíre happy with it thatís all that matters. Virginiaís probably gain the most from aging and Burley the least. Latakia softens and mellows. Aroís lose a fair amount of the top note.
I like to use the half-pint jars, I can fit two ounces in one, this way I can have one open to smoke out of and the rest can stay sealed until Iím ready for it. A lot of aged tobaccoís will degenerate fairly quickly after you open the jar.
