  • Wos Apple and Black Currant
  • Abraxas 'Premier batch fin' & it is my premier time with this one. I like very much the 'coarse' version, but the 'fin' is even better seems smoother some how.

    well done Abraxas another winner ....
  • Dholakia Swiss Chocolate for the first time and man it was blissful. Sorry Toque but your Chocolate is not one of my favourites, it actually put me off buying the Dholakia because I find it to be a bit like hot chocolate powder. Anyway, the Swiss Chocolate tastes very authentic to me and I love the consistency.

    If only it were a tin I opened and not a plastic pot, that's the only thing resembling a complaint.

    This evening I opened a lot of tins for the first time - Dholakia Chocolate Rose, Toque Camphor & Clove, Dean Swift Specific, Molens Mettaijer, Viking Blonde, GH Sea Breezes, SG Ma's Ruin and Gin & Tonic. I am in love with them all.
    In fact from my new order the only one I haven't tried yet is WoS Irish Toast 21, and that's just because I can't get the blasted thing open...

    Just popped the lid on my 1st ever snuff from the Stok range. Newly arrived in post yesterday were the 'Orange' & 'Camphor' (SnuffStore were out/lost the others) I'll source the rest in the near future. Especially now after trying the :

    Stok 'Orange'

    Well you can't have a snuff arrive in the post and not try it pretty soon afterwards. I like it a dark medium mill tobacco with a menthol orange scent and not too overpowering on the menthol, which is good.
  • Finally opened the Irish Toast #21 - had to cut the tin open and decant into another minor WoS tin. First trouble i've had with a Wilson's tin in 5 years... anyway, the snuff is very nice, somewhere between the #20 & #22 in that it is nutty and smoky but still has a tiny scent of SP to it, IMO.
  • Silver Dollar Spearmint.

    Haven't been able to afford to place online orders, but I'm stuck with what we sell at the shop I work at.
    Considering it's Silver Dollar and Toque USA, that's not necessarily a bad thing.
  • F&T 'Kendal brown'

    KB was my 1st & regular snuff, excusivly that for about 2yrs before I discovered others. That was GH 'Kendal brown'. This is my 1st ever F&T version and as you would expect it is that much more "posh" than the GH.

    Grand Cairo, in a 10g tin, about 2 YO and hasn't lost a step...
  • Packard's Club Snuff- the dispenser is a love hate thing.Love when it works hate when it don't. can't get past the menthol to enjoy the scent. I do like the effect!

    @basement_shaman I keep 2 refilled dispensers with me at ALL times. I mean ALL times! I just woke up a few minutes ago with both of them in my hand. HOPEFULLY I'll be falling asleep again in a few minutes, and guess where they'll be? :-D
  • Peeled off the green tape around the lids of 2 WoS tins 'Irish coffee' & 'Coffee cream'

    Part of todays "Coffee challenge" which will be fun.
  • toque quit. I am sure there is rustica in it. It smells like rustica which i used it as dipping for many years.
  • Viking Brown
  • SG Firedance. I couldn't find any reviews online but ordered it partly because I liked the name, and partly because some members here regard it highly. I can see why. A wonderful snuff, with blackberry and vanilla flavours with a hearty tobacco base.
  • Now for the GH Irish D. It's almost exactly like a US Scotch. It has that BBQ smokiness to it that other UK toasts don't.

    I did the exact same thing this morning before I even read your post. :-D

    GH Dry Orange. Very nice. Medium moist, very like Toque Toast & Marmalade without the toast.
  • GH Dry Orange. Very nice. Medium moist, very like Toque Toast & Marmalade without the toast.
    Sounds more like "medium moist orange" to me. :-D I had a tap box of that years ago and it was EXTREMELY dry. I think that was the first snuff that I tried that wasn't an American scotch or a Poschl menthol. Nearly choked to death on it lol.
  • Found a store in Richmond that sells General Swedish Snus. I bought a couple of cans and opened them yesterday. Pretty much a straight tobacco flavor. They also had pipe tobacco mixed by a local blender. Good quality tobacco and the price was decent (less than $3.00 an ounce). I got the Virginia Blend and Latakia Blend.
  • SG Toffee. Deep tobacco flavour and a nice but not overpowering toffee scent.

    @EricJ: I know what you mean. One of the first snuffs I bought when I started about 5 years ago was GH Strawberry in a tap box. I knew no better at the time. It was foul - bone dry and strangely perfumed; it was like sniffing Shake N Vac. Totally put me off all GH snuffs until very recently.
  • Stok 'Camphor'
    WoS 'Wallflower'
    WoS 'Gold label'
    WoS 'Royal George'

    The first two are new to me. The Stok 'Camphor' was a bit of a surprise darker than I expected for some reason, not sure about the menthol-camphor balance, but I'll try again a few times throughout the day & see how I feel. (slightly too much menthol IMO)

    The 'Wallflower' is pleasant (obviously by its name a floral type) very easy to snuff large pinches. And at the moment it is doing battle with the after effects of the Stok 'Camphor' so again better I retry it throughout the day to let it stand for itself.
  • Silver Dollar Blueberry and also Silver Dollar Apricot.
  • SG Gin & Tonic
  • SG Red Crest- Nice, finer then most SG I tried before ,the tin note was a slight apricot a bit on the sour side, in the nose it is moist, easy to use, I will have to spend some time with it before I give a review.

  • Rooster
  • London Brown and Musinotabak
  • One of those small tins of WoS Apple & Blackcurrant. worth the $.79 I paid for it. Quite moist ,fine, and the scent lasts for a short time. easy to use. The granny smith apple is up front not much blackcurrant. could use some Dholakia white or Wille Pete to bump the nicotine.

    Arnold Andre 'Tucky' menthol blast + some other niceness (Aniseed ?) comes in when the initial rush has past. I like!

    & a bit of a cheat here :

    Dholakia 'Black' & 'white'

    Whe I first received these ~1-2 mnths ago I thought "poo" and put them in a zip lock bag where I have about a dozen or so snuffs I don't like.

    But time after time people say on hear you need to give a snuff a chance in terms of amount you try & also time - like wine I guess some improve!

    So its a "which tin did you re-open today" And yes much much better & I really do rate these 2 a lot higher than before.

    (PS. My MrS order was dispatched yesterday & that contains the 6photo 25g bundle - so more snuffs of this verity to come - excellent !!!!!!)

    I'll have to re-visit some more in that zip-lock "don't like" bag - but those 'Black Rappee' types I really don't think so
  • 6Photo 'Kailash' - Wow, one of the most refreshing snuffs I've ever had! Why it has taken me so long to discover this one.

    Again at the risk of sounding a bit sycophantic I have to thank the members here (esp. @basement_shaman) for the recomemdations to explore the World of Indian snuffs inc 6Photo range. Good things come to those ....
