  • Hip hip huray!
  • Well what about migration onto phpBB forums sw? I would say time proven and robust. Jack
  • I would say Brandy de Jerez (spanish cognac) made and aged same way as Sherry Wine by maturing in Soleras in used sherry casks. If I am not mistaken TQ Ambrosia differs from TQ Spanish Gem by coarser grind, higher level of moisture and small aditio…
  • @roderick have you been in touch with this firm http://www.janousek.com/. As I believe those one few firms making coffee aroma on the market. Jack
  • Toque Violet it is, so next call: F&T Dr. J. R. Justice.
  • Only available during X-mass festive season (december?) trough their sole distributor in Switzerland in as I guess in seriously limited quantities. Jack
  • Highly doubtufull, read less and enjoy life whilst you can. Are you willing live to 100 years? My body is not temple, but amusement park. Simple as that. Jack
  • As it looks for many months: Nothing, just bah humbug. Carry on! JackP.S. Its a real shame. J
  • Usually tobacco (leaf and stalks) are treated with mixture made fom quick lime, amonia water + some other alkalines (washing soda or baking soda). Some manufactures also add minor portion of salmiak (amonium chloride) in mixture. Also some amonia is…
  • @ladin Myself personally i would recomend for starters Fribourg & Treyer snuff by Wilsons. All of them are pretty complex snuffs with rich history, and also not too strong to repulse begginers. Next I would recomend some plain snuff, some SP and…
  • I have heard about that Bob Gregory (Samuel Gawith master-blender) reguraly sprinkled SG Irish D over his breakfast (poached eggs). Heard this from firsthand witness, when Bob Gregory was special guest at Slow Smoking Championship organized by my pi…
  • @Roderick Not only EC is to blame, blame also your past govements for those insane regitstration fees. AFAIK every country have free will how expensive such charges could be. Also blame your colleagues from small tobacco intustry for being inactive …
  • I am from Czech republic and my working and travelling times are as follows:My working week consist is 37.5 hours/week and travelling time up to 2 hours a day (back and forth), by public transport (bus line) combined with some walking distance. But …
  • how that Kvass tastes? As I understood its like unhopped beer with faily low alcohol content. For me as for Czech its absolutely unknown drink and always thought its something clody and somehow unpleasant. Jack

  • Out of pure curiosity, what so appealing on those Vietnamese Nicotiana rustica? I have tryed few times such tobacco and I have found it subpar quality. Harsh, horrid stench (it smells like dead rat), poor burning quality just F grade tobacco. it was…
  • I would add my pointers: Kendal Browns (by Samuel Gawith) are class of snuff of its own. Some of them are lightly scented and also they have scent of its own by mixture of base tobaccos. AFAIK GH Kendal Brown is axed by TPD2 fiasco. Jack
  • Well quite few compounds commonly used in snuff making is quite toxic in large doses. For example: Tonca bean (Coumarine) is considered toxic by FDA and its not approved as food aditive in the EU. About Camphor here in Czech Republic pure camphor i…
  • Of course there is UK based Snuff miller who is open to bespoke orders and it is @Roderick from Toque Snuff. If i am not mistaken minimal bespoke order is 400 (500) grams and if you pay little extra fee it could be sold and send towards you in 10 or…
  • Well, well whole idea looks quite nice indeed, but there is one bloody big obstacle to pass trough and its called EC TPD2. AFAIK if you need to made bespoke tobacco from SG you need first to find distributor whom took all care and paperwork. In year…
  • About animals and tobacco, some15 years ago I was riding a horse named Orbit (named after chewing gums) and he was great tobacco lover. he was capable to steal box of cigarettes from my jacketpocket. After him I was riding a mare named Lucy (Belgian…
  • IMHO vast majority of UK produced snuff have about same nicotine levels, but nicotine hit is depedendant how quickly is nicotine released to system. For example toasted snuff could have lesser nicotine amount in total mass, but nicotine hit is quick…
  • G'Day as it looks (and by my rusty german knowledge) that Bernard is willing to sell within Germany only. Jack
  • AFAIK No for Samuel Gawith operations, by my sources they operate as separate entities under one roof. Only purchasing of raw leaf is condesed (greater quatities = better prices). Also late batches of GH snuff were packaged in SG tins. It does have …
  • @yisraeldov AFAIK Samue Gawith & Co. never dealt with private customers in last few years. Only trough their retailers or distributors. On the other hand both of Gawith firms were quite horrid with their web presentations. Also as my latest kno…
  • Toque Ambrosia (first tinned batch): Grind: Demigross Colour: Rich earthy brown with few lighter coloured specks Smell: Freshly opened tin (few hours after delivery): very faint smell of old socks mixed with traces of ammonia with light alcoholic ti…

  • My 2 pennies on topic: Mouldy tobacco of any kind is unsuitable for any form of human consumption. Do not forget mouldy blobs are visible part of actual mould infection, the mycelium is fully grouvn trough tobacco mass by now. I am sorry to say its …
  • Hello CaptainLezo Only manufacturers whom offers direct sale to endcustomers (within EU) are Toque and McChrystal. Dealing with Gawiths is close to impossible and Wilsons of Sharrow suppling UK customers only. Jack
  • @yisraeldov very interesting video, but only thing bugging me a wee bit and its your recipe for after fast: one cookie and 100 grams of ice cold vodka. Even if I consider myself as iron stomach fellow, I am strongly believe that amount of vodka on e…
