It's hard to beat Navy Sweet for its combination of good flavor and power, but it's well known that it's impossible to take without it hitting the back of the throat and who knows if the finer particles don't reach the lungs. One way to avoid this is to mix the snuff with mineral oil (tasteless and odorless). I put my portion of snuff in a spoon and mix in the oil using a dropper. I mix with a wooden pick. The round end of 3.5 inch craft picks are good for this.
For my size portion, one or two drops will make a snuff dough, another drop or two will make a snuff goo. I find the goo easier to apply to the nostrils and use a q-tip to apply it.
I find the nicotine effect is initially somewhat muted but it is long lasting (not always desirable). The big difference though is in the flavor which is actually brought out by the oil
and can last for an hour or two. My only doubt is the effect of wiping snuff on the nostrils in
terms of health. Or it's possible the mineral oil diminishes potential problems.
