  • I would say absolutly not. Dholakia African is nearly unsnuffable. Its very very coarse, and more importantly, completely saturated w/ammonia. I really don't know how it would be enjoyable.
    Dholkia Black is fine and oiled(i think), and, if you can get beyond the- "check the bottom of your shoe for poo scent" i get from it, you will probably enjoy it.
  • Does the African have less of the "bottom of the shoe" scent than the Black? Personally I'd rather have the ammonia, and at least that can be aired out, right? I simply can't take the D. Black or D. Medicated, but can totally groove on Sparrow Cool or NTSU etc.
  • The African is lightly mentholated as well
  • @PotPoe The scent of barnyard is better than cat piss, The barnyard scent with the ammonia scent is part of the fermentation process when tiny little microbes fart all over your snuff. this is what they look like= https://encrypted-tbn0.google.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQfiCfYcFETM19HvveHMbulHPQIzK6B_g-qdKRCq70aBS_CIhNULw

  • I was looking forward to African, but not if it has a cat piss element. Is it barnyard (which I like) or cat piss with African?
  • @cakeanddottle not cat piss that is only in Connecticut shade wrapper on cigars

  • ok then it stays in the cart. Not to thread hijack, but what snuff has the biggest livestock factor? So far for me it's Viking Brown. Love to try some more like that. I don't get barnyard from any of the Kendal Browns.

    air out the ammonia it's easy you leave the lid of the tin for a little while and the ammonia smell is gone.
  • @cakeanddottle Gwayi tobacco from South Africa all have strong barnyard scent [Taxi,NTSU,and Babaton] These snuffs for some reason have a very course grind. I don't know if it is traditional or just region preference

  • Taxi Blue isn't in the same league as the great English coarse snuffs. It's a pass for me on reorder. Would I feel different about NTSU or Babaton?
  • @cakeanddottle Your right different animal, like comparing a schmalzler to indian snuff.
    If you don't like taxi then you won't get on with the other two.

  • See I don't get the manurey smell at all from the S Africans so far and I've had 8 or 9 of them. There's a scent I've found in a couple of Indian snuff and only from Indians, maybe we're talking about a different smell? The only thing I ever dislike from the S Africans disappears after a bit of airing out- and even that only bothers me some of the time. Beauty must be in the nose of the beholder.

    What about Neffa Ifrikia, it's not course or moist and has a serious barnyard scent to it IMO, I don't think it's an African snuff though.

    SG Crests, to my nose.

    Ntsu is suprisingily good when dried out almost completely. It takes on scents that you wouldn't expect. Like a slightily floral hint and a touch o honey too. Actualy like it when it's most of the way to bone dry.
  • @snuffsniffer Neffa Ifrikia is more of a North African style: think Berber or Algerian, Moroccan, etc. Geographically as far from South Africa as either is from India.

    Having said that, not all South African snuffs are the gwayi (Zulu) style. Bob mentioned Magnet in another thread, and there is also Wilsons Best Blend and probablya couple more.
  • bobbob Member
    wait are you saying that magnet is not was a enjoyable snuff???
  • No, I said Magnet was a non-gwayi South African snuff. I din't say it was bad, but I should have. :P
  • bobbob Member
    I just thought they stopped makeing it and was trying to get a confirmation that they had or had not stopped making it. I really liked that one it was one of a kind.

  • Thank's Stogie!

    bob- I found the magnet menthol interesting, still have some around here, but I'm not expecting it to have cellarred(sp?) well. Never had the peach, was there another?
  • Anything that smalls like cat crap on a shoe just doesn't sound appealing to me. I had one snuff that smelled like potting soil. It is no longer in my possession with an intentionally undisclosed method of disposal.
  • air out the ammonia it's easy you leave the lid of the tin for a little while and the ammonia smell is gone.
    nah... the good´ol ammonia

  • I enjoy the ammonia this insures me it is still fermenting, and part of the joy to experience

  • I just muddle through the ammonia smell of the Taxi and NTSU.
    After a day or 2 of regular use all the opening and closing of the container takes care of that smell.
  • I never notice an ammonia smell. I just classify it as a "fresh" smell, and it doesn't bother me in the least!
  • Fresh Ntsu reeks of ammonia, more so than any other snuff have tried. Some compare it to cat urine. I think its stronger than that. Some speculate that ammonia is added to the snuff beyond what occurs naturally. Some air the ammonia out for an hour before snuffing, but I like it ammonia and all. It seems to intensify the buzz.
  • I have just begun to snuff Dholakia African, in the snus type plastic tub. Here are my impressions... coarse, moist, can't pin down the exact scent, but its reminiscent of the Taxi or Babeton blue. Only the slightest hint of menthol. I do not detect ammonia at all. Very high nic level. My first take on it is that its very similar to the Zulu style S. African snuffs, just like someone above mentioned. It has the back of my head throbbing just now..my personal indicator of high nicotine. I like it.
