 Two new Fine Border snuffs.

Which stuff really lingers with bergamot after inhaling ?

Im looking for a snuff that lingers with either tobacco taste or bergamot or both after inhaling..
I find a lot of the snuffs i take the flavor disappears soon after snuffing. Making me want to snuff again immediatley after.
I am looking for something that truly lingers.
any ideas will be greatly appreciated.

    Gawith Hoggarth SP. Moist and coarse, well scented with bergamot and rose.
    It's surprisingly different from traditional WoS or J&H W offerings.


    GH SP

    Well, it REALLY depends on a lot of factors how long its gonna last. I find snuffs to last a LOT longer if I take them outside, in semi-moist air. Try takin some of the ones you habe outside.

  • WoS Grand Cairo.

    Then there's WoS Jockey Club, "a sweetly scented snuff using the perfume of that name". Musk, sandalwood, citrus, geranium and bergamot are raving there.

    Or try Mullins & Westley Jock's Choice, which is even more refreshing. Go on the urban treck to Covent Garden and look for a Segar and Snuff Parlour. Mind you, house snuffs are pricey, but boy are they good! Their Particular is another unique, non-relabeled snuff, decent, almost plain SP, worth every penny. Mature Crumbled is relabeled WoS Gold Label, which is another great SP variety.

    i was in that exact shop this weekend..I actuall cycled into covent garden to pick some stuff up..they were trying to charge me 6 pounds 50 for a tub of black rappee...which i had to decline as i had 2 tins on order....

    I have bad luck with this shop. First time years ago stumbled upon it accidentally on a night stroll, it was closed. Last year visiting London I went there deliberately, but to no avail - their working hours were kind of odd back then, I was late (despite checking online beforehand). They do accept orders by phone, though.

    Worth asking for a tester-pinch of Jock's and Particular, if you happen to be in a vicinity again.
  • I'm pretty sure that you will love WoS Best Dark!
    It's like a rappee with bergamont!

    I'll ask for a pinch volunge, ill be cycling up again in next week or two, I should have checked their own brand..its a tiny little box of a shop, got some nice cigars and one poor guy sat behind a counter ...got a bit of a harry potter feel to it...but i wouldnt like to work there.
  • volungevolunge Member
    Indeed, WoS Best Dark is a rappee. I concur with @tobaccobob, you should give it a go. It's... exactly what you are looking for! And on a good offer at WoS online store right now. https://sharrowmills.com/category/snuff-2

    tobacobob volunge i got the WoS Best Dark... it is a great snuff, i actually really like it...i found the most lingering scent for me was by far T&f princes, and then bordeau, but i do prefer the Best Dark at the moment as the princes is potent but with the scent of a flower, which is not exactly to my taste (CURRENTLY) ...thanks

    Glad you like it! There's another one black, moist, finer than BD but more heavy on floral scent and a tad stronger - F&T Domingo. I haven't tried Princes, so can't compare them.

    The new WoS Africa apparently has the same tobacco base as BD - at least their descriptions are similar, both are "coarse, moist blend of burley and dark fired tobaccos", only Africa is chocolate scented, not SP flavoured. I would expect the same coarse grind, colour, moisture and potency.

    I agree with GH SP and Toque SP Extra. Above all I echo @Rogue - when I've been working from home all afternoon and then take the dog out - Whoa! Aroma city! Also maybe WoS SP500

    If you are looking for aroma staying power to the point it may become unwelcome, check out Jaxons

    @eblip you could try and track down a new Italian bergamot tabacchiere. It's a snuffbox made from the dried intact peel of the bergamot orange. The peel is turned inside out and cured/dried, any snuff inside will be scented by the oils present in the bergamot peel. This post has a picture of one and a link to a company tgat works with bergamot.

  • WoS Tom Buck is my bergamot choice

    @eblip here's a link to the bergamot snuffbox product page. They will ship overseas.
