Funny, I had no idea that Poschl was calling their Apricot "Gawith Apricot" due to SG's popularity. I just figured somewhere along the line someone at Poschl was having some sort of fling with some one at the house of Gawith & got rights to the name via nepotism. Razz

Kaiser, I like the menthol but I am not really looking to ramp it up any. At this point I am just anticipating the arrival of my first Mr. Snuff order. I ordered Morlaix, French Carotte, Crumbs of Comfort, and Poschl "Gawith" Apricot.

Nonetheless, I now know exactly who to go to for any further recommendations. Very Happy

That's a darn fine order brother. And heck yes, we will recommend our butts off. It is just brotherly to encourage spending on tobacco products. Twisted Evil

What little I've snuffed I haven't needed a hanky.

My ancient of days Wilson's of Sharrow stuff just armor plates my nasal cavity.

All of them Laughing

One way to try some different ones is the get the MR. Snuff Toast Bundle

My favorite Toast is Toque Whiskey & Honey.

All of The Toque toast are good. Whiskey & Honey, Lime Toast, Almond and Natural Toast.

Wilson's # 20 is a toasted SP

Their other toast are good as well. Lemon Toast, #21 is not as dry as 22. 22 is a High Dry Toast.

And then there is F&T - to some they have the flagship of Toast.

Gawith & Hoggarth toast has a little vinegar scent to it to me. I prefer SG's over GH but prefer any of the above over both of them.

If you are new to snuff you may find toast to be a little more challenging. Nothing that a little time and experience can't overcome though.

I would get Whiskey & Honey, Wilson's Lemon Toast because it is pretty easy to take and a couple of the natural toast either Toque or Wilson's and the F&T.

Berwick Brown in excellent for beginners. Berwick Brown has a very long lasting scent. Much longer than any other Toque snuff. Close to as long as some of the F&T snuffs.

Viking Dark or Brown would be two others that are very easy to take IMO.

I am going to have to go back and look at what a toast is technically. I snuffed a good bit of G&H Kendal Brown. Toque Whiskey & Honey (which marginally disappointed me), and quite a few others that were unflavored. I was just assuming the toasts were actually the ones labeled "toast" in the name because there are quite a few of those out there.

About the only ones from Toque that haven't disappointed me were Spanish Gem, X-Mas pudding, and Chocolate. It has to just be me because there are guys who love toque, but when I compare the quality to WoS, F&T (which is basically WoS being made there and all, but off the old F&T recipes), and SamG, I am just left disappointed by Toque. YMMV of course, just my take on things. Nothing against Roderick over at Toque of course because he is a darn nice guy from correspondence, but I really wish he was able to get trade secrets from WoS lol. Oooohhh....the guy who blends Abraxas used to be a cop, if I remember right, and he spent years on Dragun before he ever released it. Which reminds me of something I have to have done here shortly.

I can't wait for my initial order to get here so I can start trying some. Always better for me to have at least a base line so I can adjust fire.

I appreciate all the feedback, and I'm looking forward to having additional questions.

Pete

Pardon the late response. I didn't realize there was actually stuff going on in The Snuffbox these days. cheers
My toast of choice is whatever Wulf, my neighbor and snuff mentor, gives me in baby food jars. I've no idea what it is; probably his own blend. For all I know, he may toast it himself. He's like that.
While I may speak like an authority on the topic, everything I know about snuff comes from Wulf. Two things you should know about him:
1. He used to be a Mod at Snuffhouse.org.
2. He's a crazy person.
Coming from me, that last one should make you guys take notice. It's guys like Wulf that allow guys like me to pass through normal society unnoticed. Razz So whatever I say about the reason behind the name of Poschl's Gawith Apricot or anything else snuff-related should be taken with a grain of salt, or maybe a MAO inhibitor.
(I still think there's a hint of menthol in SG Apricot, though.)
