  • The No. 1 High Mill is superb in my opinion and I'm also very keen on the Cob Dark. Blue Crest and Black Coffee are good but I'm less enthused about the others. You'd be best off having a look at the Snuff Reviews site.
  • Samuel Gawith are my second favourite snuff makers at the moment, after Wilsons of Sharrow/F&T. Their No.1 High Mill and Black Coffee are superb. Their Wild Duck is good too, but a bit strange - a KB scented with peppermint. Their SP Scotch and Kendal Browns are classics too. Golden Glow is also a nice one. Snuffreviews.com has quite a lot of them covered.
  • I have been holding myself back from dumping my Wilson's Peppermint into my big tin of Sam's KB Special only because I have no idea if I'll ever be able to buy another big tin of it.

    A peppermint KB sounds heavenly. I can imagine few things better, but then again I'm a simple man!
  • I am partial to their Irish D - among the best toasts made, imho.
  • Definitely Yay! They make some real good snuffs.
  • cstokes4cstokes4 Administrator
    'nuff said. Some of thier flavors seem so unique. Should be a nice change of pace.
  • I've got a lot of snuffs from SG that I wouldn't want to be without. Golden Glow, Dr. Verey's Plus, Peppermint Gold, X Blend, Cuckoo, and Honey to name a few. I see Wild Duck mentioned here, and I just haven't decided if I like that one or not. It is a strange snuff.

    Here is what I ended up ordering:

    Banana
    Otter Hound
    Wild Duck
    No.1 High Mill
    Grousemoor
    Blue Crest
    Black Coffee
    Dark Cob

    I love the names that SG gives their products. I prefer the "fancy" names to just "Raspberry". Cukoo sounds pretty wacky, kind of like Wild Duck.

    After a few pinches of Cob Gold I had to resurrect this thread. I too like the "fancy" names of snuff. Makes me feel "fancy", just like my watch and tiny spoon :)

    I'm really enjoying Yellow Crest lately. Compared to Wilsons, F&T, Toque, and Dholakia, SG is poorly respresented in my collection. Slowly and steadily I've been getting more and more of them.

    They really need to expand their lame US offerings though.
  • Angels are singing with Honey flavor. Thanks.
  • I like their Golden Glow, Black Coffee and Dr Verey's, Oh not forgetting Zip!
  • SG Black Coffee is heavenly, I've got a full tin and I've already ordered some more. Never want to be without it.
  • is the banana any good? i was considering putting that in among my next batch i order
  • cstokes4cstokes4 Administrator
    I like the Banana. It's the only one around (that I know of). I have 30g of it.
  • After hearing about their apple, that one is on my wishlist.
  • I have almost all the SG snuffs now, and there aren't any I don't like. Some of them aren't every day users, but they all have their place in the lineup.
  • cstokes4cstokes4 Administrator
    Some are a bit too perfumy for me, so I tend to stay away from those. A good deal of them are superb. SG has something for everyone, that's for sure. They just happen to make the best fruit snuffs.
  • A definite Yay from me - I only have a handful of SG snuffs, but they are all very good indeed.
  • @ Carol, the SG Apple is DELICIOUS, you'll love it.
  • Is it SG that makes Irish D Light?
  • cstokes4cstokes4 Administrator
    yes
  • I have not taken to any of the SG snuffs.
    A lot of you have been the beneficiary of my trading out of them.
    I have another on the trades site if you want to expand your collection...
  • @ Bigguyer: have you tried Yellow Crest?

    I sent it to you!
  • not me. I got mine from My Smoking Shop.
    Anyway, I'm surprised if you didn't care for that one. Its the best I've had from them so far. Blue Crest is in second place. I'd get both of those again. The rest of the ones, were ok. Still have about 50 left to get though.
  • cstokes4cstokes4 Administrator
    You still have 50 SG's to go through? Yikes!
  • I've tried 8, and they have over 60 types, so more than 50 really. Wilsons seems to dominate my collection so far.
  • cstokes4cstokes4 Administrator
    Ah, I see. I thought you bought 50 to try!

    I'm trying to catch up on Wilson's.
  • This is what I need to round out my SG collection. Then I'm off to conquer Wilson's.
