Six Photo snuffs are back in stock.

So I'm looking for a medicated... suggestions?

I've had the pleasure of trying only a handful of medicated snuffs.. O&G, WoS SM 500, and a few 6 Photos.. and I need a resupply. My favorite of those is the SM 500 - highly effective, affordale, easy to take, and doesn't linger in my nose too long. Not too big on the perfumed 6 Photo snuffs only because they tend to overpower whatever else is in my daily rotation. Any suggestions? thanks!


  • You might try some of the Indian ones labeled as medicated, like Dholakia Med, and Med #10. They are pretty good, and light on the incense type of scent. Also, Hedges L-260 is a must try if you enjoy medicated snuffs, it's a old standby.
  • I like Hedges, and the Toque mentholated fruits... especially the raspberry menthol.
  • Hedges is really nice--it's a darker tobacco, with a clean and strong menthol kick.  For a lighter tobacco (but strong menthol kick) I would try McChrystal's JIP or the wonderful Medicated 99 from J & H Wilson.
  • McChrystals English Menthol is my personal favorite.
  • Six Photo medicated no. 6 and 666. Clears the nose, refreshing and for me - gets rid of a heavy head.
  • There were some south african snuffs don't know if they are still available. Dr Rumneys was one I enjoyed .Other heavy SA snuff taxi menthol and NTSU. 
    Dholakia #10 that snuff works, But I only use it when needed ,not something I use all day. 
    Hedges L260 could be used all day but you should give the nose a break from strong menthol's
    Wilson of Sharrows  Dynamite is right up there with SM 500 maybe a tweek stronger. Hard to tell when your face is frozen.
    6 Photo I like the 66 has a chocolate undertone but 666 may be your huckleberry. 
    FUBAR SNAFU Medicated or menthol. Quite overwhelming if I remember correctly. Have to revisit it soon.
    And that Swiss snuff Schweizer Menthol I heard good things about it. a little pricey. but sometime I buy steak instead of hamburger.
    Samuel Gawith Gold Mull may be something to try. Menthol not over powering, coarse grind, easy to use.
    refreshing, doesn't overstay it's welcome. Probably on the discontinued list
    Honorable mention is Poschl Red bull, get in the refill packets.  
    If you like raspberry WoS Raspberry does the job.

  • If you like McChrystals O&G try Highland Ice for sure!!!
  • Thanks for the feedback!
  • I quite enjoy Toque Camphor and Clove it's the only medicated i like, admittedly thats through fear of menthol's lol 
  • Give singletons original super menthol a try, not too overpowering on the menthol front, really nice hay/straw background and a nice gentle burn.
  • ive always used 6 photo medicated 66

    Mac Craig Royal(Almost like the President but better),Radford premium,also Kloster Andechs special snuff.
  • A Swiss snuff Menthol I quite like is Schweizer Menthol. Its fairly expensive at $1 a gram though great for a treat every now and then.
  • Just to shake it up a bit here, I'm not a huge fan of the "classic" mentholated/medicated snuffs, although I can enjoy them occasionally. 
    But when I have a headache, or a cold, I snuff the hell out of Fichtenadel Tabak (Bernard) and Lowenprise (Poschl). They both have a "darker" note and are beautifully flavored with gentler menthol. You might give them a try.

  • Sharrow Medicated in the vac-tin is a nice, smooth menthol, but it does clog.

    I love Hedges and I have yet to try another menthol that is so earthy and medicinal - but as the shaman says, it's very strong too use all day.

    Bernard's Rumney's is really pleasant.  It's so fluffy and fresh with a nice little zest to it.
  • @jbrentoniv no more vac-tins. I just got a large order from Sharrows and even the Medicated no 99 doesn't come in the Vac tin any more.

    That must be very new as I just received a vac-tin about two weeks ago.

    As an aside, there are some vintage Hedges L260 tins on eBay with Israeli stickers on them - could be a cool item if you collect. I assume the writing is Israeli - it's either Israeli or Predator.
  • @jbrentoniv

    Where did you order your tins from ?  I got mine also about 2 weeks ago from WoS.

    Do you have a picture, or link to ebay ? I would be interested in seeing it.  

    I have not seen anything other than WoS being sold here, but I have seen hedges. 

    BTW. Hebrew ( what you called Israeli ) is very close to Predator. The predators once ruled over the ancient Jewish people and adopted many  things from our customs, one being the language. Another being that their hair style is from Jewish Payos. You can also see that they where a fringed tunic under their amour, like our Titzis. When our G-d drove they out of the land they left behind many artifacts, my family has one of their flying razor discs that was passed down 100 generations.

    - I ordered from Mr.Snuff.

    - I'm not sure if I can post links here.  Just go to ebay and search for "Lot 2Pcs VTG HEDGES Snuff Boxes Tins" and it will come up. (try clicking on that hyperlink - it worked for me).
    - HA!!! Great stuff on the Predator!  Thanks for the laugh and for taking my joke lightheartedly.

    Doesn't look much different than a regular Hedges Tin.

    So it says: 

    Smelling Tobacco ( Snuff ) 
    Produced by RIZLA (?) DeGlass England.
    The Importer is: The Company for importing and exporting Tobacco LTD
    PO BOX 1289 Haifa

    If the joke is in good taste then it will not cause indigestion
  • @jbrentoniv those arent vac-tins they are just regular tins, they arent vacuum sealed like a SG tin is.
  • Very older labelling also. Not anything I've ever seen and no health warming.
  • @n9inchnails

    Those aren't the vac-tins I was referring to.  There's some convos up above which explains all of that.

    The old tin is so much more attractive without the big warning label on there.

    Thank you for the translation.  Interesting that they were produced by Rizla, which I am assuming is the same Rizla world renown for their rolling papers.

    LOL @ "The Company for importing and exporting Tobacco LTD"  Pretty creative and catchy name, I think!
  • Didn't see that you were talking about Sharrow Medicated, my bad
  • WoS Supper Cool  Is worth trying if you like strong menthol. Makes my eyes water and brain freeze if I snuff it just right. 
  • a question for anybody, are some medicated snuffs made more for congestion and others for flavor? O&G is very medicated but i enjoy it for its flavor. i use other medicated snuffs to clear my nose. does menthol with camphor and eucalyptus make it more for a decongestant rather than just menthol alone?
  • @peacock. While I like O&G I find that straight menthol is a much better decongestant, provided that I don't take too much.
