    Re: Snuff - What's in your nose?

    For an American snuff I like Navy Plain or Railroad Mills Plain. American snuff is quite fine and harder to snuff than English or German snuffs. A good natural snuff is Sam Gawith London Brown. It is course and moist and comes in a vacuum sealed 25g tin. If you can't find the London Brown, SG Scotch Black is good (also in the 25g tin) You might want to try a SP snuff also. All brands make them. The most popular is probably Wilson Of Sharrow Best SP. I like WOS Gold Label as it is made with Virginia tobacco. A lot of people like WOS Tom Buck. It has more bergamot scent to it than most. The Bernards Aecht Altberischer Schmalzler or the Bernards Dopplefermenteit Schmalzler are good German snuffs. For a medicated I use G&H CM (camphor menthol) or WOS SM Blue. The SM stands for Sharrow Medicated. Excellent menthols include WOS Honey Menthol and McCrystal's O&G (Original and Genuine) Wow, I could write a book an recommended snuffs.

    I'm trying a mixture of Tom Buck and McC O&G. It's not bad, but I'm slowly figuring out what I like in a snuff.

    Re: Snuff - What's in your nose?

    Thanks to each of you for your recommendations. That gives me a great place to start.

    I was curious about some of the drug store brands...from the past...if they were worth trying or not? My mom (back in her hay days of bull riding and barrel racing) used snuff as her grandmother...my late great-grandmother always had that stuff in her nose. I used to spill it out all over the floor when I was growing up...and would go over for a visit! That's my memory of nasal snuff...and that so many others in my family used it, but most are all gone!

    I am going to keep digging, doing some research and see if I can find what some of their favorite brands were...I think I will text my mom now to see fi she remembers!

    Thanks again fellers!

    I'm having some Wilson's of Sharrow Strawberry at the moment. It has a nice natural tobacco base with an articfical Strawberry scent that is surprisingly very pleasant.

    @quo155: most Americans used that snuff in their mouths, especially women. If they recommend a sweet snuff approach it with caution. Some American sweet snuffs smell good, but the sugar in them bothers my sinuses. If you want to try a sweet snuff, Honey Bee smell great.

    Tommy,

    I tried to send you a PM, but it says your mailbox is full. If you'll PM me your address, I'll put together a small snuff sampler for you. I only have one american snuff (Garret Sweet Scotch), but I can send you a wide variety of european snuffs, including a few that Nachman mentioned.

    Cheers,
    DanR

    Got a text back from my Mom...and they used to always use "W.E. Garrett & Sons sweet and mild snuff" and/or Scotch Snuff from their line...now, off to see if it is still around...

    Re: Snuff - What's in your nose?

    Thank you for the info! I just ran across some of your information on snuffhouse.org...you had some useful tips there as well!

    Yes, that's what the ladies would do down here...that's not what I am looking for...as much as a brand they'd use and was popular here in Texas. I am leaning more towards trying their Scotch Snuff...or something along those lines.I'm not stuck on this brand, it's just something I do...I like to carry on a few things that others in my past used...if you know what I mean?

    In fact, I really don't think I would like "sweet" in general, I may...but I am looking more for something smoky...woodsy, or natural...as I like tobacco as it is.

    Thank you Nick!

    Sorry Dan, I just cleaned out some PM's so my inbox should be good for now...if you want to try again. I don't expect anything from you brother, just some direction...as this is new to me!

    Holy Hannah, Dan! That's a bit more than I take. Here's a pretty standard sized portion of snuff for what goes in my nose per bump.

    I'd say I take a hit about the size of an aspirin at most.

    Re: Snuff - What's in your nose?

    I'd say the size of an aspirin or a pea would be typical for me. Sometimes if I take a smaller pinch I'll chain several in row.

    Re: Snuff - What's in your nose?

    About 2 weeks ago I bought a tin of WOS Anise Extra off of Kyle to see if I would like snuff and have decided that I do an I want to put an order in soon, the problem is I dont know what to buy. If anybody had suggestions I would love to hear them so I can start going down this slope the proper direction.

    Hey Dan...would you...or anyone else, entertain doing a small trade for some pipe baccy or a few cigars...for a sampler of Snuff? I want to try some to see if it is even something I would like.

    Let me know!
