According to an articel on making your own snuff
, I tested a method for flavouring plain snuff myself. As lazy as I am, I did not buy and grind tobacco in person, but rather took the plain Latakia Ao 1860
as a basis. Therefore I only had to care about the flavour. I decided to give whisky a try.
According to the instructions I did the following:
- Take a small and bigger bowl. Put the snuff into the first and the whisky into the latter one.
- Put the small bowl into the bigger one.
- Close the bigger bowl and make sure it is air-tight.

After two or three days at a warm place, I took a look at my whisky snuff:
left: before, right: afterwards
It is very moist and definitely needs to dry a little. The snuff has a slight scent of whisky, which is also noticeable when snuffing it. Next time, I will give it some more days to enhance the whisky scent.
Overall, it was a nice experiment which I will probably repeat with some different flavours. Maybe whisky and vanilla? Let's see.
