  • Maybe it wasn't a schmalzler, but it was pretty close to be named as one: https://imgbbb.com/image/76TTH
  • A bergamot snuff from Dholakia would be awsome! But I'd like it to be a bit moist, like "Temptation Purple Passion" or "Plum Cake".
  • As far as I know, they are no longer produced. But I'm still trying to get a hold of it and I'll try to contact one supplier that probably has it in stock.

  • Czyli jestes Litwinem czy Litwinem polskiego pochodzenia? Jak mi jeszcze powiesz, ze w Rydze, to juz w ogole kolejny pretekst do spelnienia w koncu swojego marzenia.
  • I tutaj lezy pies pogrzebany! Indeed I started with a Polish sentance. There wasn't any problem with that a few years back, so I wasn't really sure what's the problem. @volunge, where are you from?
  • I wanted to write something, but the post is being cut all the time..
  • I didn't know you were our fan :)
  • Happy National Snuff Fortnight to all the Brits here!
  • There is only one thing you have to do to celebrate, Roderick.
  • It isn't the first time Bernard's Charivari hits the market. Although I doubt it was orginaly cherry flavored.
  • Well if I were from Wilsons, I would certainly rebrand my snuffs. It would be rather strange for them to make another menthol snuff (Aramis - S.M.?) or a floral one (Atos - Jockey Club?), while they already have a few of those. Portos is rather a tr…
  • Panie @volunge, if you'll find that recipe, you can post it here. I didn't now that Estonians are also into kvass so it will be a nice addition to the topic.

  • The Three Musketeers and Butterfly snuffs are made by Wilsons of Sharrow. As I remember talking way back with CiT when those snuffs were introduced into the market, they ordered WoS to make new snuffs for them - not rebrand the ones they already had…
  • Now that is a picture that is making me thinking again on making my own kvass again (or at least to try to do so). About 4 years ago I wrote a small booklet for myself about this drink contains such "chapters" as: the history of kvass in XX-century …

  • Right, I remember now. There used to be one or two newsagents franchises that had snuff in stock. But I haven't seen snuff there lately, at least in my hometown and the city a live in. They probably just stuck with the snuff renaissance phenomenon a…

  • I do hope he's feeling good now. He was my favorite schmalzler maker. 
  • That's quite simple to answer and the answer is "tobacco monopoly". At least in case why there isn't any local produced snuff in those regions. Long story short. After Poland and Czechoslovakia gained independance in 1918 and for Russia after revolu…

  • I wasn't in the mood for any snuff related topic for the past years, so I haven't done much in the terms of writing. But I did not gave up the idea of writing a book, since I already have around 100 pages of text and with a bit of systematic work, I…
  • Does anyone know this particular ilustration. I would like to know who is the original author.
  • That's kind of sad that they don't have any snuff manufacturers nowadays, considering the fact they had a really strong market before the communist era.

  • @volunge, our administrator hasn't been active in the snufftaking world for quite some time, so he's not focused anymore on running this website. Maybe it will come back someday, but I'm not sure it will ever happen.
  • That's not the first time when snuff was mixed with paint. Joshua Reynolds (1723-1792) took his snuff so causally that it often landed in his paint.
  • Isn't it just branded as snuff for it to be easier distributed in European countries? I don't know how it is in other EU countries, but in the Polish law it's way much easier to import tobacco products which are already well known (ciggarets, cigars…
  • How about the time when tobacco was introduced into Germany? Or when the first tobacco factory was founded? Any info on that?
  • I came across 22 jokes about snuff, while I was searching in old Polish magazines. This one comes from 23th of November 1938. "Do you know this joke about a Scot who liked to take snuff, and because recently snuff has risen by a penny per kilo, so h…
  • How funny, I bought this snuff a couple days ago from a guy from Ukraine. The snuff's name is actually... "Snuff" itself and was made in Morshansk.
  • @Roderick, does the new law not concern you in any way? I'm curious how it looks in UK. You are technically still in the EU. I hope that you'll dispell my doubts.
  • May I ask where can I find any information on the upoming ban of flavoring all tobacco products? I though it was only going to be cigarettes and the deadline for all UE countries on changing the law was this year. Poland has changed the law last mo…
  • @snuffmiller, I'll certainly send him my insights on that matter. That of course won't do much, but letting go forgotten such an important historical institution without a word, it is outrageous.
