    My first post in a week or more (long story), but this I could not pass up. HA! I'm almost out - which means just wait, it'll grow on you.

    Been doing a lot of WOS Gold Label lately. It has a better nose burn than other SPs and has some lemon and perhaps lavender added to the bergamot scent. The tobacco is also different as it is a Virginia flour.

    Ahh, DW already had me at the first "HEEELLOOO"...

    Macouba yesterday (yummy, love it) and SG Red Crest today which is very pleasant. I just love the Chocolate!

    So, how many tins can one have open at a time, and for how long?

    One is too many for sensible individuals. I currently have 4 or 5 open, so hopefully for a long time.

    I have had four tins intermittently open for almost one year, with no indication of essence diminishment. Stored in a cool, dark place when not in use (as opposed to the warm, dark place where it all eventually ends up).

    I have about ten open, but use the same two or three most of the time. Some don't loose anything no matter how much time passes, some loose scent rapidly.

    I took a bit of this again just now. Powdered marzipan it is. Sometimes I don't get it on the first dose. Simply keep shoveling it into your beak...

    (I buy this in 25g tubs - maybe a different format won't be as fresh? This tub has been about for a good few months.)

    It depends what you mean by "open". The F&T tubes have an excellent seal and can be briefly opened for transfer to a little tin or box for daily use almost indefinitely in my experience. I use these when empty for other less well packed snuffs. In less well sealed tins shelf life can be quite short, but still in the order of a few months.

    Indefinitely is a relative term, however. I probably get through 25g or so of snuff a week. I've got probably 15 tubes of snuff on the go at any time. I rotate through them as I please; the least favoured ones will probably be used four ot five times less often than my favourites, so they must last up to a year. I've not noticed much deterioration in any dry snuff in this time. Moist or semi-moist ones do suffer from drying and consequent loss of aroma. The worst one in my experience was Samuel Gawith Chocolate snuff. Dries and loses much of its aroma. However, as this is such a fine snuff the trick is obviously to take it much more often. I've got a little bit left and may try to hydrate it to see if that helps. Still pretty good dry, though. Maddenly chocolatey and powerful.

    Today, I have mostly been snuffing... G,H&Co Almond Snuff. And a bit of SG Chocolate.

    I've been snuffing WOS Irish Toast No.22 lately, delightful.

    I've also been trying to like Dholakia Black, but I hate it.

    Since I've been enjoying exclusively Dholakia White for about a week now (will this tin ever empty?) I wonder how the Black differs. "Hate" is a pretty strong word in the snuff context, since I couldn't say I hate even those I really don't think that great. What up?

    D White is very fine and dry and has a slight fishy scent. D Black is moister and smells like a barnyard.

    Enjoying Morlaix (when am I not?) today.

    Have to say that "barnyard" is actually appealing, at least in concept.

    But I like kimchee, so there you have it.
