Toque Silver Dollar

edited May 2012 in Types of Snuff
I got a pre-release batch of Toque's latest - the Silver Dollar range - and here are a few thoughts:

Firstly, if you like Poschl and have been in snuff-misery because the supply has dried up then you are in for a treat. These snuffs are very 'German' in taste, texture and grind and actually raise the bar; Poschl-like in terms of body but Toque in flavour. They come in 5g 'love em or hate em' twist cans, with a small dosing hole in the side. My problem with these is that they just don't hold enough snuff and with snuff this good you would want a nice 25g tin - I could use 5g in half a day.

The snuff is medium to fine, slightly moist and dark, across the range - so I guess all share the same flour - and comes in Cherry, Raspberry, Apricot, Original, Natural and Spearmint. Each of the flavoured snuffs have that authentic 'tastes like it says on the tin' quality that makes Toque snuffs in general so good. The Raspberry - my favourite of the bunch - is like snuffing a good snuff that has had fresh raspberry juice drizzled in to it. Very, very moreish. All of the flavours are spot on and have a long duration after the pinch. The Apricot is sweet and luscious, the Cherry cries out for a bowl of cream and the Spearmint is...er..very minty. The original is a fresh, cool menthol snuff that had me thinking of snuffs like 'Kennsington'. I love the addition of a natural snuff to this range as well - just good, pure, earthy tobacco. All of the snuffs, apart from the Natural, have a touch of menthol in them to a degree; but very well and sparingly applied - only the Original gives an intense menthol hit.

A superb range of snuffs. To really appreciate them I strongly suggest buying the entire range because they all compliment each other and would suit different parts of the day: original to wake up, spearmint with the first coffee of the day, raspberry to keep you going through the morning, etc etc.

  • Any sort of store locator up yet to find out where one can buy this? Would help out quite a bit. I'm afraid I've not seen any Silver Dollar snuff laying about the local tobacconist's yet.
  • Its not available for a couple of weeks.
  • I'll buy one of each as soon as I can find them. If they are that good I'll buy more. I like the idea of the "dosing hole" since I am a back of the hand snuffer, I rarely pinch.
  • I have been looking and looking and looking for a store locator or something- I have found a whole whopping 4 or 5 posts IN ALL on the internet. lol
  • I called the US distributor, https://pkcigar.com/Login.aspx?ReturnUrl=/Default.aspx back when Roderick first posted about this. I've spoken with reps a couple of times on the phone and they were very helpful and able to give me listings of retailers near me who had accounts with them. I have arrangements with a tobacco shop near Dallas that supposedly has some on order. I hated to hear the delivery date was pushed back but it sounds worth the wait.
  • The scary thing I've been told is they have pre-sold the first batch already. They should be filtering into the shops now.
  • Any chance in finding some in Canada?
  • sounds awesome. Roderick know if any are going towards state college PA? Probably not but if so I'll buy a round of tins. :)
  • Bob I'm frequently near State College. My family lives in Mill Hall. Where are you exactly?
  • When are they going to be available to order from Toque's website, @Roderick?
  • I think they are planning on selling in Canada Nightcap, I just don't know the ins and outs.

    NunoH, we aren't planning on selling on our website. The range is aimed at B&M stores with the idea that they will be available all over the States.
  • @rdunnion in state college proper.
  • The prices for over-the-counter snuff in Canada are insane (taxes!) but I would love to be able to pick up the occasional tin at the 7-11 or tobbaconist. Especially Toque, and especially with the postal strike looming!
  • Sounds good, I liked poschl because it was easy to take the flavor of their U.S. offerings is kind of meh though.
  • I'd love to be able to buy some Silver Dollar from a local tobacconist. I must have this snuff! :-D
  • You will like it; we just need to work on him to supply it on his site and in larger tins. The raspberry is to die for and 5g is not much for a greedy rat like me:)
  • Unles they have french warnings, english warnings and a list of "toxic constituents" I dont think it will be here. At least not legally.
  • it seems to me that rasberry smells like the whole plant.  An old friend of mine use to say that some plants "smelled green".  I think that is a mostly apt way to put it in this case,  I just love it.
  • I cant wait to try it!!
  • This is a great thing for those of is in the US.

    I have tried the Cherry, Maybe I got a bad one but it had a musty taste to it, I prefer the Ozona Cherry better taste and a better tin too.
  • , absolutely agreed luxaorta
  • Dude I haven't seen it anywhere in the metro-Detroit area still. Whenever I go into a tobacco store and ask for it, I always get the weirdest looks and then they point me to the Skoal.
  • I would buy if and try it if I could. You guys keep talking it up!
  • @jazzi_mike @hooked if you're interested, send me a PM and I can get you some.
  • I have seen it in northern California. They cost $5 per tin with Ca. Taxes. In a pinch I would buy one but can get three times the amount of W/S snuff for less ordering on line. I did try the silver dollar apricot and it did not agree with me. Have not botherd to try the other flavors yet.
  • I had tried the whole range but the price is too high.$4.00 a tin OUCH.These are emergency stash I keep in the glove box all except the spearmint; transference is definite.   I will stick with my imports. 
  • The shop by me charges $4.99, but I had to try a few and support the local snuff market a bit.
  • $5.49 here. Just can't pay that for 5 grams
