My Top 50!

There's plenty of Top 3 and Top 5 threads, and of course the recurring "Pick One " threads. I never get chance to give credit to a lot of good snuffs in those threads, so to give a salute to all those that never quite make "the list", here's the big one - my current Top 50 snuffs!!!

  • Thanks for filling out my next order sheet. B-)
  • Ha Ha! You're welcome.
  •  I have a Sameul Gawith Scotch ( https://redd.it/5lki1n ) that I don't like, are you interested in it ?
  • Thank you for the offer, but I stay clear of the tapboxes.

    Well it seems the EU TPD debacle has claimed several of my favourites, and of the Wilsons snuffs listed above only two haven't been killed off. Thankfully I have four of them in bulk. Obviously we have lost Molens too, Morocco from the F&T range, and I fear the worst for the Mullins and Westley range.

    Hopefully we'll not lose too many of the others.
  • I don't think I've tried 50 different kind of snuffs yet. Im getting close though.
  • Good list, though I don't necessarily like all of them myself. London Brown for sure, And Santo Domingo too. I'd be hard pressed to come up with my own list since my snuff taking habits are kind of schizophrenic at best! Oh yeah, I agree w/ your Toques, but I'd add SP Extra. And my list would have Tube Rose, Garrett Sweet, and the exceedingly rare Red Rose, which I have a vintage 1970s tin of. 
  • I probably need to update this in a few months. 17 of them have already been discontinued, and who knows what other shocks 2017 may have in store. 50 currently available favourites might be a struggle soon. On a more positive note, I think I can now add Spanish Gem to this list, plus Western Glory too.
  • @50ft_trad around how many snuffs would you say you have tried? Im with Psicko I wouldnt think i've tried 50 different snuff yet, probably late 30's early 40's. 
  • :-? 150? That's a pure guess though

    I would like to know your 50 least favorite snuffs listed in numerical order, to know where to keep clear off ^:)^
  • Try them all! Some of my most hated might become some of your favourites
  • BTW 150 is a measly amount compared to many members here, and I have very limited experience in scotches, toasts, menthols, schmaltzers, Indian snuffs, and many others - and still haven't worked my way through all the UK offerings yet.
  • I was thinking about this thread earlier today, and I wondered if there was still 50 snuffs still available that I would buy (if I didn't already have a 10 year stash). The sad answer is NO.

    However, I did identify 40 different sorts I'd buy from all the snuffs still in circulation. So despite the devastating effects of the TPD fiasco, if for some god awful reason I had to start my collection again, I would still be able to furnish my drawers and cupboards with a fine array of snuffs to keep my nose highly satisfied. Let's face it, liking 40 different snuffs which are freely available, is not bad at all considering recent events.

    So here's my new Top 40:
