Impressions, observations, questions, etc..

Berwick Brown. When I opened the tin and that pungent aroma hit me I thought "Ugh, I'm not gonna like this". Wrong! Although it smells too heavy, too perfumed, what I get is longevity. Santo Domingo smells better but it's fleeting. Berwick Brown stays with me, and the aroma when snuffed isn't like the tin aroma, it's actually wonderful. I get a flashback to when we had a boarding stables and I'd unsaddle a horse in a clean stall. The aroma is big on saddle leather and horse sweat with a bit of sweet cob mix and hay. There is a floral element that can be distracting at times - it comes and goes - but it's an essential element to the whole so it's acceptable.

Santo Domingo is the best tobacco smelling snuff of the lot, but the wonderful dark, rich tobacco aroma is gone too quickly. I've read a few reviews where the writer mentioned how after a bit suddenly it became superb and complex, so I'm going to stick with it.

SG Brown Regular is OK but has an odd, almost chemical smell. I've only tried it a couple of times so it's too soon to tell. The others I've only tried once, will come back to them.

The first couple of days took patience and persistence as each snuff produced an extremely runny nose and an urge to blow. After a couple days I was able to snuff a bit and keep it there a while.

Which brings me to a question. I keep hearing things like "It really makes my nose run, great stuff". For me, I get more out of it when my nose runs the least and the snuff sits on the membrane creating wonderful aromas. When the run starts it kills the aromas and forces excessive wiping which ends up removing grains of snuff from the nose. Am I missing something here?

When I started, I found all snuffs made me sneeze.    After more practice (and smaller doses) that reflex went away and I'm able to enjoy the flavors and the different levels of buzz.   Mentholated and mint snuff will get my nose running pretty well, but that is expected.   Most others do not cause excessive mucus formation.

My favorites so far are single fruit flavors; apricot, peach, raspberry and of course all the highly complex OM snuffs I've tried (except for Black Velvet).

Totally agree, I enjoy it most when my nose isn't running. I've found that some of the blends that get me really drippy when sniffed don't do that when I spackle them instead. You might give it a try. Just scoop on a spoon shaped anything that will fit into your nostril, and smack the snuff into whatever part of the nose you want to put it. I personally go for the very front as I have a rather large nose and there's a fair sized pocket of space there on me. I find that if you do this though you will need to go in and clean the area out with wet Qtips when you change flavors. I also clean after every other spackle as well otherwise you just have too much built up there to get much out of it. I'm still working on my snorting techniques so I frequently fall back to spackling. Hope this is some help. Oh by the way what I use as a "spoon" is a metal cuticle pusher from a nail manicure kit from WalMart. If you want I can try and load a pic.
