Classic Tin-Same Great Taste

Old Paris - Hated now loved

I've been buying a bunch of small tap tins in order to get an idea of what snuffs I like and what snuffs I don't; I'm not a newbie to tobacco in general, but a total newbie to snuff so this seems like the most economic way of trying as much as possible. 

I'd heard absolutely rave reviews of F&T's Old Paris so I was excited to give it a go, could not believe it - it wasn't exactly moist, more completely drenched, and came out in what could best be described as something between clumps and a sludge. The aroma was sort of vaguely soapy and smelled very familiar but it was something I couldn't put my finger on. 

My wife then told me that - moron that I am - I had forgotten it was in my pocket when putting my work clothes through the wash!!!! The 'vaguely familiar aroma' was in fact, our washing powder! 

Despite my idiocy, I do like to think of myself as a fair chap, so I've since bought another tin, and can honestly say that it's my favourite snuff thus far (although I'm yet to try anything from Toque, I put an order in every payday so will explore them next month!).

Has anybody else been as monumentally stupid as me, or am I in a category of my own?!

  • Hahah, that's a pretty good one.  I've certainly had snuff go through the wash, but never mistaken it for fresh!  :))
  • Hmm perhaps you hit on a new method to re-hydrate stale Snuffs...
  • Available at artisan snuff.com

  • Old Paris is one of my favorites by far!
  • @Roderick Thanks, it also seems to be available from Toque.com should be getting my order through the letterbox any day now (very excited to try your "quit" and "almond toast" too! )

    Perhaps consistency is the issue. the last batch of F&T's Old Paris three years ago had a larger grain and was more moist (which was my preference) than what I purchased 30 years ago
