Those of you folk who aren't of the pipe smoking tribe can leave now as this won't be of much interest to you. BUT if youse a smoker then read on.
The time honoured way to keep your baccy moist is by putting a bit of spud or apple in your pouch. But I have found a few drops of Navy Rum keeps it moist and believ me folks gives the baccy a taste all of its own. Brandy or Whiskey will be okay but nothing beats Navy Rum.

I've heard that rum is also a good choice for cleaning briar pipes.(Inside only of course.) What's a good way to keep a whole tin (8oz.or 226g.) moist? I don't have any pouch humidifiers and my cigar humidor is way too humid.
