    Jim, do you mean English Rose? If so, I can vouch for it. Not really anything like Ennerdale, not even close, but very good, nonetheless. It's my second favorite after the T-Buck. I cannot personally confirm the following, but hope it's true:

    A floral-scented snuff called "English Rose" is provided for members of the British House of Commons at public expense due to smoking in the House being banned since 1693. A famous silver communal snuff box kept at the entrance of the House was destroyed in an air raid during World War II with a replacement being subsequently presented to the House by Winston Churchill.
    1792 Flake was first produced in 1830, exactly 139 years before man walked on the moon. Coincidence?

    Gack. I meant English Rose, I did, I was just experiencing vapor lock! I don't even LIKE "My Wild Irish Rose"! But yeah, the official snuff of Parliament...cool.

    Try mixing some O&G with Tom Buck. It's wonderful!

    I've been enjoying Dragun snuff by Abraxus quite a bit lately. It is like a toast with a good bit of cinnamon added. It warms your nose from the inside.

    Glad to see some info on this. I'd eyed it up as an interest to try. Love original Abraxas blend, so this will have to be added to the ever expanding list.

    Just tried it - I do admit it is a great improvement over plain O&G (I'm not really a fan of the menthol, probably from my Skoal days in Texas). The O&G pretty much overpowered the TB, but a little sniff of Dholakia White on top of the other two really mellowed it all out for me.

    English Rose is next in the queue.

    Toque Menthol, which might be becoming my favorite Toque variety.

    I've had a steady rotation of Hedges, O&G, Crumbs, and Toque Original going for a few weeks now. Think the Macuba & Musino Tabak are due for a revisit...

    De Kralingse Limburgertabak: While I find their snuffs very pleasant, I find the grind a little tricky to work with. I feel they too dry for how coarse they are ground. Maybe if they were a little moister, or more finely ground... At any rate, this is very good. Kinda sweet. Reminds me of brown sugar.

    Wilsons of Sharrow Honey Menthol.

    I always carry a menthol (or minty) snuff of some sort. Hedges, Crumbs of Comfort Extra or Honey Menthol. This week it's the turn of the Honey Menthol. And Tom Buck.

    I for one will be leaving this to the professionals. With snuff here at about GBP2.50 for a large tin (25g), I simply couldn't justify making the effort for my tin a week habit. I'm also dubious about the quality of what you'd get homemade. Not so much in terms of the grid and sift, but the blend of tobaccos and flavourings. 200+ years of experience make a big difference. Although it does sound fun...

    Today, I have been mostly sticking Samuel Gawith Chocolate Snuff up my nose.

    Not one of my regular snuffs; got it as a try-out in a batch that arrived yesterday. Spent half the day today being driven mad trying to see where that lovely choccy smell was coming from.
