Your Favorite Toast (and why...)

Non-artisan snuff only.

Mine is F&T HDT. It took me a good while to get the technique for this one, but my persistence more than paid off. It's distinctive nuttiness gives it the edge over WoS IHT no22 for me.

  • I'll second F&T HDT, not only my favourite toast, but my overall favourite snuff. I simply love the flavour, the smokiness, nutty leathery goodness. It's refined and sophisticated, yet about as simple as a snuff blend gets- no added flavours or chemicals (I hope). #22 is nice too, but not as nice.

    This morning as it happens I'm enjoying Toques Natural Toast which I got with my last order. I'm liking it a lot also, it has a lovely creaminess to it that the others lack, and a slight molasses/burnt sugar note which is quite nice too.

    Dholakia Madras Toast is nice too, but I put that in a different class because it's obviously flavoured. I've had a few others, such as GH's Irish D which I wouldn't buy again, and Toques Lime Toast which simply doesn't work for me. I'm a bit of a Plain Jane when it comes to my toasts!

    Yes @dan11! Toque's Natural Toast was my first true gateway toast, and remains my second favourite until this day. My 100g economy bag is running low..
  • Toque Whisky and Honey here. Easy to take and a lovely honey/smoke flavor. Followed closely by Toque Natural Toast.
  • F&T HDT for me, It was the first snuff I loved and it made me a snuffer.
  • I generally can't use toasts, however I have recently discovered the new Dr Rumneys Brown by WoS, which appears to be a toast combined with a natural untoasted tobacco. The result is very usable and very enjoyable. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys toasts and/or plain tobacco snuffs
  • Difficult question. I gotta call out Toque Lime Toast.  Probably too scented to be my desert island toast, but it's just so freakin' good.
    Plain - I'll give #22 the edge over HDT.
  • I like the scent of Wilsons #22 for the tobacco and then with the drip it also has a natural tobacco flavor. Very good.
  • Definitely F&T HDT.  It's usually the only snuff I carry away from the house.

    F&T HDT, though I just recently tried Toque Natural Toast for the first time and I gotta say... it's a contender.  I'd have to have the two side-by-side to know for sure which is my first choice. (Also tried the Toque Lime Toast, which is also great, but I prefer it without the lime.)

    Not a fan of IHT #22.  People say it's similar to F&T HDT but I don't get that, at all.  It smells kinda like dirt to me. 

    SG Irish D Lite is the misfit.  Instead of the plain or buttery scent it smells like pipe tobacco.  Really nice, but stuffs me up something fierce.  I can't use it.
  • F&T HDT...has that leathery/buttery thing that no other has.
  • F&T HDT,  Why you ask? It is simply the best snuff on the planet bar none! G'Day

    I agree with Zan up there ^^^^^  G'Day

    I thought IHT #22 and HDT would be the top 2 contenders! Am glad that Toque Natural Toast is getting some love, too, as it really is up there with the best of them.

    F&T does indeed have a buttery nuttiness that keeps it, by a hair, in my no1 position.
  • F&T HDT for the buttery campfire happiness.  Different noses, different batches, and/or different tin qualities it seems regarding WoS IHT No22.  My first tin of it was just awesome and I really couldn't tell it apart from HDT, but the next one I opened wasn't as rich, and was almost as plain as what @smm was talking about up there.  
    *Toque Lime Toast gets an honorable mention because I love lime, and it's the best of both worlds.  Lucky for me it doesn't remind me of any kind of cleaning product like it does for some others.  
  • HDT is great, but for some reason I prefer the Tranter #21 I bought. It isn't buttery or nutty or smokey--it's just this wonderfully balanced plain tobacco snuff. The moisture when it was fresh was just right. I used to take about six pinches in a row, sit back and get ready to be run over by the N Train. Wonderful stuff. I never tried the Wilson of Sharrow #21 to see if it was the exact same or not.

    A great description of HDT @SeanOCDPx. Toque's Lime Toast is my favourite citrusy toast, closely followed by Toque's Marmalade. Almond Toast is another wonderful example of how Toque have mastered hybrid toasts.

    Tranter #21 sounds right up my street Mike_B. Will have to try it.
  • @Nulliverse:  you're going to need a time machine to get it--I don't think they've made it for a few years now.
  • Shame @Mike_B!

    Regarding #22, I definetly think it has an earthy, leathery thing going on (something I like about it). Another thing that I'm really enjoying at the moment, though not really a toast, is Toque's Silver Dollar Scotch. It has the nuttiness of HDT and the leather of #22, but combined with a distinctive scent of cigar tobacco.
