View Full Version : Snuff

I was just curious about what nasal snuffs tended have the highest nicotine content. I've only tried the mentholated pickard snuffs, and I got little nicotine "buzz," and for some reason the menthol tended to clog my nose a little after it opened my nose up.
I've heard the english snuffs are probably what I'm looking for. Any suggestions?

Samuel Gawith's Kendal Brown is my favourite. Not much flavour other than tobacco and quite strong on vitamin N! Also it's a course, moist snuff so doesn't blow your head off!

This thread made me throw up a little in my mouth. I don't understand snuff, when cigars are so easily available...

My only two experiences with snuff were both had at the hands of Germans...in one instance, literally.
The first time I was offered a pinch was during my Senior year in high school when my German class was hosting a group of exchange students. We were out on a day trip to St. Paul to show them our state captitol and one of my German friends pulled out a little red plastic tin of nasal snuff. He offered me some and tapped it out on my hand between my thumb and pointer finger. I followed his lead and up the chute it went. I actually did enjoy both the aroma and the nicotine rush sensation, but due to lack of availabilty here and those nagging people we like to call parents, I never gave it a second thought.
Fast forward six years and I'm living in Munich. I was out at the Hofbräuhaus with a group of friends and sitting across the table from us was an elderly German fellow decked out the traditional garb. I'm talking the whole nine yards: lederhosen, knee high socks, the green felt hat with feathers... Real nice guy offering us cigarettes and excited to practice his English. Well, before long, he pulled out a real nice hand carved, wooden snuff container and tapped a bit out on his hand. SNNNNIFFFFFFFFFF! Then he let out a real honk into his handkerchief, wiped his nose, tapped out another snuff, and outstreched his hand towards me as if to say, "Here. Have a snuff. Go on...make you strong like ox!"
I can't think of snuff without thinking of Pierre Francois de la Briosky.
