  • Hi Folks,

    I've been reading this forum for the past month as I began making my own snuff. I've made some very good snuff out of some aged Fronto dark air cured. I haven't added anything to it, but sieved it to a very fine powder (I guess you call this a "toast"). 

    My problem is that I seem to be slightly allergic to it, as it makes my upper palate itchy and my nose run if I use it too much. 

    Any suggestions?

    Hi Alberich,
    I noticed Grapefruit on your list at number three. This is my morning snuff but it frustrates me that I can't get its scent to last longer. It is one of the quickest of our snuffs to fade and yet when it is fresh I just love it. I was thinking of putting it in 5g tins because it fades so quickly and I wanted to ask what you, as one who rates it highly, thought?

      Hi Roderick,

      If you were to take that approach, I can promise you at least one customer. Biggest issue for me is that I'm still relatively new to snuffing in general, and so even a 5g tin would last me a week or two as I rotate between that, the Berwick Brown, and a few others. I definitely think it would be worth a shot, though.

      You got me thinking, though. With the disclaimer that I obviously know very little about the snuffmaking process, what if you were to make a somewhat courser grind to server as the base for the grapefruit? I'm thinking that, if you were to use a Berwick Brown-type grind, you might be able to have each snuff grain hold a larger amount of scent. And so even if some of the scent is lost, might some that was closer to the "core" of the grain migrate outwards at the same time, and we would still get that wonderful grapefruit aroma? Just a thought, and it may be way off base.

      Regardless, anything I can ever do to help out--even just opinions!--with the grapefruit or anything else, please ask away.

      Cheers,
      Fred/Alberich

    Hi Yisrael,

    Just watched your very well thought out review of a (market) snuff you traded for a Wilsons. I thought it might be of interest to you that there is a lot of black market Toque in Israel at the moment. 

    I'm not usually one to get stiffed but I trusted a chap simply because he was a Jew. I Know that was naive of me, but if you can't trust a Jew who can you trust?  Long story short he failed to pay his bill. You learn from your mistakes, but you should be aware that this snuff is apparently being cut with other snuffs (may not even be tobacco) so if you are trading for more (Market) snuff be careful. I just wanted to warn a friend. 

     It might even have Toque labels, however he asked me to send the snuff loose and the labels in another shipment. Could be he ditched the labels.

    Stay healthy,
    Roderick

      I'm honored that you took the time to watch my review, and even more that you took the time to leave me this message.

      I'm not sure what you mean by "(market) snuff," can you please explain?

      With out getting too political, I want to make a few comments. First, many people who live in the "state of Israel" are not Jewish, even though they have Jewish names and might even think they are Jewish. Next, most of the country, while they may be technically ( ethnically? ) Jews, they do every thing that they can not to act like it. 3rd there is a large possibility that he never got his order, customs here is awful, the government makes it nearly impossible for a small business to make a living without bending the rules. Probably why he wanted the labels separately, was to avoid customs.

      How much snuff are we talking about ?

      The weird thing is that I don't see a large market for snuff except for Ultra Orthodox ( like me ) and most of us don't have computers or internet ( I do at work, but not at home).

      The snuff that I reviewed, I really doubt that it was from Toque, I think I would have been able to recognize it even if it has been "cut." This snuff company has been around for a while, but like I said in the review, I have seen their boxes with other peoples stickers on it.

      Can you please send me more info about the snuff and the guy you sold it to by email, I'll try to put the word out locally, and you never know, it is a small country, I may know him and can have a word.

      Have a successful day.

    Did anything ever pan out? I found this thread very intriguing but just seems to have dead ended!?
    Did you finally get things sorted out so you could get the online Indian store up and running.

    Hi, cstokes4 - was going to post this picture I found in the Wellcome Collection to the Snuff Library, but it seems to be a closed forum. Anyway, I thought it was a nice little vignette of snuff culture of the early 19th century.

    Just got a Trac# from him so would assume you should also have one too. He sent package yesterday via UPS. Good thing I got word from him as I was ready to push the red button to send him up on Snuffhouse to be tar and feathered.
    Didn't, I'm happy and life goes on! Truly hope the same on your end also.

    Hi, I contacted Hitsuzen about the TPS Madras and told him I wanted to go in on it.  He said he'd get back to me because he thought Sandwhichisles might be interested.  Just to let you know as well, I'm interested.  Thanks!  - Sean

    Hi Perry,
    The Lundy's foot is unopened. It needs to be refrigerated once it is. You can have the whole thing at cost or we can split it and I can put it in the freezer for a few days before mailing which should be fine, especially because 7.5g won't take too long to consume. Your call. The red bull is unopened, it's yours. I'd be interested in the Garrett Scotch and the Red Seal, but not the Bruton. You also mentioned Tops, I'd like the Mild, not the Sweet. I'll run through my fantasy league draft picks for you on the odd chance you ever stumble upon an American Scotch liquidation sale. I'm cribbing from @ermtony mostly and some Yankee folklore.

    From Conwood: Dental, Honest, Levi Garrett, and Tube Rose
    Swisher: RR Mills, Ralph's, Square, Starr, and Superior
    USST: Standard and the ones I mentioned in the first PM

    As I say, these are fantasies. The Dr. J.R. Justice was over the top for me. I'm going to cellar it but I'm happy to give you a sample. Likewise, anything else is available to sample as well. I will plan on mailing this on Wednesday if you'd like to split the Lundy's, or Monday if you take the whole thing. Feel free to call me but not after 6:15 PM EST tomorrow, obviously.
    Obligingly,

    Going out on a limb. Curious if you still had some of that kilo of NB Madras in the older photo on pipe smokers form. I'm currently looking for about 100g. Thanks.

      Man, I'm a dummy! I was wondering why anyone would want to get rid of great snuff like that (well, except for the chocolate, which is not my thing). Didn't recognize you from PSF. I have exactly 100 grams of NB left that I've been hoarding and using up some of my other snuff first. I think I'm going to order a kilo of TPS and/or NC Madras from Hookah1. I've found TPS to be pretty close to NB. Sure to wish that source of NB hadn't dried up.
