So after receiving my second package of snuff (this time from McChrystalsUSA) I find I have found a definite favorite of the 11 flavors of snuffs I have tried; McChrystal's Anisette, with Toque Original a close second(will be ordering a 10g tin of this to put in a tap box). The Anisette has all the notes of licorice I was looking for in sweetness, cloying, and tangy. I have definite plans on getting a few 8.75 tins of this and putting them in the freezer for future use.
None of the snuffs Ive tried thus far (2 shipments and 3 days of snuffing) have been anything i would rather not have tried. The only slight disappointment was that McChrystal's Original & Genuine was a menthol because I was hoping to make comparisons with Toque Original to see how their ideas of a traditional snuff differed. The Mc O&G is a fine mentholated snuff and so all-in-all I'm not disappointed with it.
Now as to where I am technique wise:
- The Boxcar method is coming front and center for me,
- I still need to work on the pinch as I am still having trouble not having snuff dribble on the floor,
- Back of the hand works when the nose isnt runny
- Tap Boxes are a wonderful way for me to dispense snuff for the above methods.
- (Toque)Bullets are nice for sampling but not for dispensing a full doseage
- Non-mentholated snuffs are not making me runny anymore
As to having the snuff travel to the back of the throat/sinus, it's happening far less often and mostly when I am too eager to take some more Anisette. :D
I am also definitely going to be getting more tap boxes as these have worked great for me thus far. I am very happy with my new hobby :D
Taking some snuff now ... And Loving It!!!!!
