    I've never actually tried snuff but after reading a bit of this thread, I'm curious.

    I might have to order some next time I'm running low on tobacco. Any recommendations on a good menthol?

    There is but one choice here. Hedges. Accept no imitations.

    Actually, opinion is sharply divided on the "Best Menthol Snuff" question. There are those who agree with me and there are those who are wrong.

    Robert is probably right. He usually is when it comes to snuff.

    I have not tried Hedges yet. McChrystals Original & Genuine is the other popular menthol. O&G is very good.

    @Spencer

    I dredged up an old post of mine (how large an ego have I...) of my personal recommendations for snuff...

    Quote Originally Posted by steinr1 View Post

    Something menthol:
    Hedges - THE menthol snuff IMHO. Some prefer McCrystals Original and Genuine (O&G), but they are simply wrong.
    Wilsons of Sharrow Honey Menthol or Cherry Menthol - simply lovely and a nice alternative to Hedges.
    Wilsons of Sharrow Crumbs of Comfort - Spearmint - a traditional favourite. Or the "Extra" variant for even more of a blast.

    Something Floral:
    Wilsons of Sharrow Rose or Carnation for a "pure" floral.
    Fribourg and Treyer Patchouli - this is more vegetal than floral.
    Fribourg and Treyer Bordeaux or Princes for a more complex floral. F&T Macouba is floral madness.

    Something Spicy:
    F&T French Carotte - sandalwood by the bucket load. Fantastic.
    GH Almond - not really spicy but not floral either. Powdered marzipan. A firm favorite of mine.

    Something to knock your socks off:
    F&T Santo Domingo - STRONG, dark (almost black) and rich.
    F&T High Dry Toast - Very fine, dry snuff; takes getting used to. Smokey aroma. Powerful Vitamin N content, as for above.

    Something Traditional:
    Wilsons of Sharrow Tom Buck - One of the best SP (Spanish Prize) snuffs about. Strongly flavoured so it is a good one to try to see if you like the SP style. You can always back off later.
    F&T Seville - A slightly different style often spoken of as an SP. Neroli oil scented - Bitter oranges.
    F&T Old Paris - hard to describe, but very nice indeed. Can't remember the base of the scent, but always gives me a Rum type tone.

    Something Outrageous:
    Samuel Gawith Chocolate Snuff - Fantastic dark chocolate aroma - quite maddening. It is BIG on nicotine.

    If I were to limit it to one of each of these types, I would go for:

    Hedges
    Wilsons of Sharrow Rose
    Fribourg and Treyer French Carotte
    Fribourg and Treyer Santo Domingo
    Wilsons of Sharrow Tom Buck
    Samuel Gawith Chocolate Snuff

    Those will give you a good cross section and give you the opportunity to tune things as you go along. If you ant wany more information (hard to imagine - I do tend to blather on...) don't hesitate to ask.

    Enjoy!

    Awesome! Thanks for the recommendation, Robert. I will give Hedges a try sometime soon here.

    I'll post what I think of it once I get some.

    I've been shoving large amounts of DW up my nose for the past few days.

    Ah - the glory of DW. It is on the menu for tomorrow, but today was for good old hippy Patchouli.
