New Snuvs: White and Rusty, Try them all!

WoS Kendal Brown - nic content!

Wow!
I had tried this when it arrived a few days ago, but I blew it out pretty soon as I was sampling other snuffs.

I just took some about an hour ago at work, and I had trouble placing the scent, so I took another couple of pinches.

After about 5-10 minutes, I began to feel a rather alarming nicotine rush!
I went to the bathroom and blew/rinsed my nose, but I still had a rather uncomfortable few minutes until it settled down to a pleasant buzz.

This will require further experimentation, but it is definitely a Good Thing.
I'm trying to reduce my cigarette smoking, and the level of nicotine in this snuff should quash cravings no problem.
I'll have to be careful not to take quite so much from now on though.
The buzz can be pleasant, but the last thing I want is to chase the buzz and end up more addicted!

I'm on my luch break now, and I threw half of my cigarette away because I didn't feel like smoking it.
Usually, I'm gasping for a smoke by the time 12:00 comes around, and I often smoke two in quick succession.

Couple of questions:

Why is the nic level so high in this snuff? I can usually keep my cravings at bay with most snuffs, but this one is a bit too much if I'm not careful.
Is it the type of tobacco or fermentation or what?

What is the scent in this snuff?
It's really familar but I can't quite place it.

    It uses the same base tobacco as just about every other WoS snuff so it has no more nicotine than any other WoS snuff, it was most likely the size and frequency of your pinches that gave you a rush. There is nothing special about WoS Kendal Brown especially in terms of nicotine
  • Sometimes a pinch of snuff will randomly hit you very hard for no apparent reason, just happened to me with some White Elephant (though that one's pretty damn strong to begin with). Sounds like my first experience with NTSU Black; uncomfortably strong to the point that I was so stimulated it was anxiogenic. Felt like I'd taken something stronger than tobacco.
  • The only unusual thing I did was take two sets of pinches in relatively quick succession.
    I've done this plenty of times before with WoS SP-100 and never had this happen.
    I have been snuffing this stuff all day, and each time I have gotten a very noticable nic hit. Pinches are the same size as my usual ones, in fact they might be a bit smaller because I'm being cautious.
    I tried some SP earlier as a 'control' and definitely didn't get anywhere near as much nicotine.

    Weird...
  • I have great difficulty calling WoS or F&T Kendal Brown, Kendal Brown. Only SG and GH get KB right esp SG.
  • I've read that but have yet to try the others.
    They're on the agenda soon though, and I'm looking forward to it.

    Can anyone tell me what the flavor of my WoS version is?
    It's so familiar it's driving me nuts!

    @n9inchnails - WoS uses several different bases, in the case of Kendal Brown it is Zimbabwe, Dark Fired, Burley and Flue. I think the Dark Fired makes it a little stronger compared to some others.

    @doctorbeat - Lemon, Violets, Geranium and May Blossom are listed by WoS for Kendal Brown, but the end result is more than the sum of its parts.
  • @hdsale thanks, I knew something was different. The color is a bit darker than my SP-100, but I put that down to moisture content. I'm not imagining this, I did careful experimentation all day at work between the two, and it has a noticably stronger nic hit.
    This is awesome. Apart from the slight unpleasantness of my little accident earlier, I can snuff just the right amount. I get enough nicotine that I really feel like I just smoked a cigarette.

    This has opened up new horizons for this hopeless smoker; working indoors, international travel, everything :D

    On a more serious note, this is the first snuff that is a genuine cigarette replacement for me, and that has good health implications.

    I am usually ok snuffing on a long flight or whatever, but I'm always glad to have a smoke at the end.
    I can see that changing now, so I must order a drum of this stuff!



  • Tried this snuff earlier today.  It has a bookshelf smell that I can't figure out but enjoy; besides a floral note that reminds me of sitting next to a flower garden rather than having flowers in my nose.  I can't say much else as this is my first floral snuff, but it's lovely and not what I expected
