Samuel Gawith Celtic Talisman Snuff

Just saw this offered on mrsnuff ... there wasn't a review up yet for it ... a quick 3 second search shows it being a new pipe tobacco from Sammy G:

"Celtic Talisman is blended from Bright Virginias, Burley and Black Cavendish.  Topped with a dash of sweet cherry and Vanilla."

Anyone had this snuff yet?  The dash of cherry vanilla sounds very good to me.

Thoughts? Reviews? Thanks!

    I've been wanting to try this.  There is also a Hazelnut and Plum snuff out there.  

  • Nice!  Plum sounds fantastic. I may have to place an order.
  • cstokes4cstokes4 Member, Moderator
    For some reason Mr. Snuff doesn't have it, there is also a "Mellomint" on there, wonder if that one is new.  
  • it has the hazlenut ... but yeah, can't find the plum yet
  • cstokes4cstokes4 Member, Moderator
    Snuff Store sells it.  
  • yeah ... just saw that as well ... my only hesitation is the tap box ... grrrr ... 25g tins would be my preference.  thanks!
  • cstokes4cstokes4 Member, Moderator
    Yep, tap boxes are horrid unless the snuff is oiled.

    On the snuffstore review it says it smells like car tyres and rubber. The only other SG snuff I have is the same kind of smell and it certainly doesn't make a nice snuff. My interest is low until more reviews come in.

    If you want it, mrsnuff has the tins in 25g if you don't want the tap box.
  • Thanks Theatre .... I also saw them describe menthol in it ... now I am removing from my cart.  Yikes.  Yeah, better to wait on this until the rubber tire scent is worked out ...  ;)  I would much prefer the SG pipe tobacco description of it ... Cherry/Vanilla .. 

    yeah, i am working on an order on mrsnuff, primarily due to the fact that i can get the 25g tins ... i have a PM into Dave checking to see if he will be getting Plum ... and/or a restock of SG Banana.

    Thanks again.

  • I've smoked SG's Celtic Talisman pipe tobacco a number of times but have never heard of the snuff.  The pipe baccy is a cherry aromatic with a natural flavor and aroma that lingers in a room for a good long time.  I suppose I could make my own snuff out of the tobacco I already have.
  • Rubber tires better than lunch lady's shoes 
     I will risk it and buy a tin and post my review on Mr.Snuff sight.
    Samuel Gawith is top shelf IMO.

  • How is this Hazelnut one ? Anyone got it so far ? Sounds way to good to me.
  • I have gotten the SG Hazelnut ... it is very light and fluffy and sweet ... it lingers, but is a nice snuff.
  • I've just tried Celtic talisman from a vacuum tin and it's got a fairly tart cherry scent with vanilla. I haven't smelled or smoked the pipe tobacco by the same name, but it reminds me of how an aromatic pipe tobacco smells before being burnt.
  • @TomStrasbourg ... that is good news.  that was the description of the pipe tobacco ... but then the snuffstore review made it sound terrible --- must've been in a tap box, methinks --- so now menthol in it correct? i will put that back in my cart for next time.  Thanks for the review.
  • @snuffbrant I don't get menthol from it, in fact it has a considerable burn and not the cold kind. The smell in the tin isn't exactly like the smell in the nose either, I'm glad I didn't let it put me off.
  • Love Celtic Talisman.  Have to agree that it is much like the pipe tobacco of the same name, but frankly a bit more enjoyable.  Mine was very fresh and slightly moist allowing for the flavor to linger a bit longer and having that smokey cherry vanilla flavor is nice!
  • I's on dominance cherry&vanilla,but there is a good work on complexity.It's a good idea to take as base a pipe tobacco to made snuff.If I take,a day,time to make my snuffs I've seen a marvelous Indian sailor of pipe tobacco...

    I've got Cherry also in a S.Gawith twist,but on twists perfumes are very light.

     I've seen a marvelous Indian sailor ????? Gandalf what is an indian sailor of pipe tobacco?
  • Seller bob,seller...

    oh that makes more sense a lot more sense.


  • I tried this just now, I found it to be exquisite.

    Celtic Talisman is a cherry snuff with a lot of body.i have been sniffing it all day long.
  • I get a bit of that chemical kind of smell in the tin, but not in the nose, and I love it - both the scent and grind.  I've got a backup tin of this one.
    Glad to see you got your orders in @Marielle32!
  • The Celtic Talisman pipe tabak has been out for awhile now. it does have that lakeland scent to it.. 
    puff it slow or will bite hard.. to me, firedance is way better..

  • Celtic Talisman and Firedance are two snuffs I have in bulk, but actually find overpowering for more than a pinch or two. Why buy bulk of a snuff I find overpowering? Well, toned down in with some plain coarse snuff such as Viking Brown, they become a lovely frequent use snuff. A bit of fruitiness, and a bit of spiciness, but without being overbearing over a few hours if you're out and about with just the one snuffbox
  • I will have to break out the Celtic Talisman. It been some time since partaken this magical sacrament

    Just tried it! Amazing. It is definitely exquisite! It does not burn at all! Sure, I only sniff it very gently.
  • great snuff i love this one for blending to bring in cherry
  • I too, love this snuff!  Sweet and long lasting.  Definitely one to keep on hand.
