Hello to you all, dear snuff fellows :
Before begin this new topic I must be honest and tell you I am a lover of Plain and Pure tobacco snuff.
And now,firstly, I think we musn't forget an important principle, that is the base of this discussion topic, : SNUFF IS NOT,SIMPLY, THE RESULT OF GRINDING ANY TOBACCO. If you take cigarettes and grind them you will have "tobacco" powder...but not snuff at all.
The snuff is the result of an special process that begins with the selection of tobacco plants, harvest of some type of plant leaves, sun cured, air cured and fermentation of selected leaves...and then the grinding process( sometimes a new to air process is necessary).
I want to say we can not accept snuff is simply tobacco powder.
I have no nothing against parfumed, floral,etc...snuffs, but I tried some scented snuffs that really were not snuff tobacco.
My daily snuff is a really craftsmanship product. The old man, Master Craftsman, that served to me the snuff, is now retired, but he teached me snuff is snuff and not tobacco powder.
I want to uphold the non scented snuffs, id est, we must not lose the tradition of snuff.
Excuse my bad English, but I hope you will understand me.
With a "pinch" and "pint" I say cheers to you all.
