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?!
