    If you would like to try a few things, I'd be more than happy to share some of mine. I don't have a huge selection, but I could at least give you a push.

    Oh I will not post this address publicly on the site; I need to hide it from Sandy Claws and his psychotic henchman (as well as other vital information).

    However, I am intrigued. hmm...perilous quest indeed.

    You will LOVE the Chocolate Snuff. It's rapidly becoming one of my favourites. It is big on Vitamin N, however. I must say that I haven't really gotten on that well with the pure fruit snuffs. Seems a bit "wrong" to me somehow. But then again the chocolate one should also fall into that trap. It don't.

    F&T blends are some of my touchstones. They are rich and complex traditional snuffs all. I wouldn't be without Bordeaux. The burn is exquisite. I think their Macouba is one of the finest snuffs made. It is floral madness, but the complexity... Have you tried either? (yet)

    Today, I have been mostly snuffing... Crumbs of Comfort.

    Refreshing and not too much nicotine. Good for shoveling in your beak all day long at work. And I have.

It is a dry, fine grind plain snuff, but it does have a good deal of smokiness. It was recommended to me by a fellow English (well, Scottish) snuffer who derided my taste for scented snuffs. As the O&G is an obvious hit, try Hedges if you have not yet. It is THE menthol snuff IMHO. Wilson's of Sharrow Honey Menthol is a nice alternative menthol snuff with a bit of a lift from the subtle honey scent. I've yet to find a snuff taker who didn't like it.
    I'll definitely be trying Hedges & Honey Menthol & will probably try Kendal Brown eventually. Not sure about Toasts yet, I'll have to see if "smoky" grows on me. It's not the same kind of Smoky as in a American Scotch, is it?

    Snuffing O&G to get me through the work day, planning to have some Tom Buck on the way home to get me through traffic.

    I only have F&T Seville right now. The orange oil is just delicious and really goes well with everything throughout my day. My breakfast this morning consisted of coffee and Seville until I went for brunch later, and the aroma of coffee and oranges was awesome

    I'll do a review (of sorts) on F&T High Dry Toast while sampling some from a round Comoys of London pewter snuffbox (Do we now need to say from which box we are taking our snuff? Like which pipe we are using to smoke a particular blend? It could become rather dull. "I'm using a small metal snuff tin...").

    A very light coloured, pale grayish tan, fine grind, dry snuff. Needs care and a bit of practice to take it correctly; otherwise the tendency is to inhale too deeply. Be gentle... Take it in small, repeated doses to sustain the pleasure. Mild burn which quickly fades leaving a clean smokey aroma - an outdoors smell like a good hardwood fire - with a strong, pure tobacco backbone. No added aroma ingredients at all. The warm glow of the nicotine creeps up on you; it is strong. Downside is it tends to make my nose run a bit. The middle to long-lasting aromas fade gracefully and gradually, keeping in character with the initial impression (unlike some florals which can fade in a rather artificial, chemical manner). This is pure, unadulterated, traditional snuff.

    It took me a while and several returns to get into it properly. It was recommended by a friend who takes little else. I couldn't see why, but now I get it. Not my personal favourite, but definitely on the "keeper" list.

    The Illusione Epernay was very good, the Emilio AF1 (how did I not know this was an AJ blend?) was even better, and the Illusione 88 was FANTASTIC.

    I look forward to the Rodrigo, and dread the day the Tat gets burned up and is gone.

    Thanks again, Andrew.

    Hey Jessica...Does David's have the Seville? I know they carry a few snuffs, if they have this one you talked me into going and getting some!

    That sounds delightful. I have been contemplating adding some WOS Chocolate Orange on to my next order. Everybody seems to love F&T though, I may just have to add something of theirs as well.

    Thanks for the review! Now I HAVE to at least give it a try, your review makes it sound wonderful.

    I'm a pretty experienced snuff user, but I think these would defeat even me.

    As an alternative to these rather coarse milled snuffs:

    Today, I have been mostly snuffing... F&T Old Paris. Every F&T order should have some of this on it.
