Got a couple of new snuffs today, part of the case-lot sale from Tobacco Supermarket cleaning out their inventory before end of the month.

Both Wilsons. Prime Minister is a spearmint with menthol, kind of a Crumbs of Comfort on steroids. Not quite as powerful as my favorite Aniseed extra but a good blast of menthol with the refreshing spearmint coming through afterwards. Very nice and will quickly enter into the rotation.

Second was Lemon Grove. Very much like a SP style snuff, with the lemon not nearly as intense a citrus note as is the bergamot in an SP like Tom Buck. After the initial snuff, the tobacco comes through and stays with you, again very reminiscent of an SP snuff.

Both of these are medium grind, not sneezy or burning. For just over $1 per 25gm tin, I am very happy with my purchase.

Thanks for the heads up. I went ahead and picked up some Prime Minister. Crumbs of Comfort on steroids you say? Would that make it close to say Extra Crumbs of Comfort? I am hoping so because that is my go to snuff and if this stuff is just as good, I will be set for a long time. Either way, it sounds like it will be enjoyable. Thanks again!

I am very happy for you. You did good to get in on the Super Market sale out. I had to replace a heat pump or I would have invested in that deal also. Maybe I will survive using these U.S. scotches and enjoy the samples a BoB so kindly sent me. Until I can order me some of the good stuff. And if PACT don't get us.

I have never tried Extra CofC. Let me know how it compares. I mostly like a real strong blast of menthol, especially in the mornings to clear the head. Along with about 6 tins of Aniseed Extra, I think this will keep me going for a while.

I should have also mentioned that Tobacco Supermarket is run by a very nice lady. I accidentally messed up the date on my CC and after holding my order for a couple of days to be sure, she emailed me and I got it corrected in time to beat the end of June deadline. Talked to her on the phone and she is a genuine tobacco enthusiast, concerned about all the nonsense going on and hopes we find ways to continue our hobby.

It is a cool and wet night, so no evening pipe. I am on my second scotch after a long hard day, and my tin of Toque Whisky & Honey is close at hand. Plus very likely a pinch or two of Wilson of Sharrow Aniseed Extra to clear the head before bed.

Ed, you sure seem to be liking the Toque lately!

Started the day with couple of pinches of WoS Aniseed Extra (my regular clear the head snuff). Now on to WoS High Irish Toast, my favorite toast!

My favorite Toque is either Blueberry or Chocolate (i mix this with my attempts at making snuff with RYO cig. tobacco) it turns out sniff able, but it ain't WOS or F&T by a long shot.

I ordered several Tins of Toque in anticipation of PACT. It is a good source of something to use when you can't afford the better stuff Like WOS or F&T or German Schmalzwers. Gandalfpc sent me some samples of the good stuff and i can't thank him enough, that is the only source I have had for saying what is good.

Toque is kinda like PA or CH or SB is to pipe tobacco.
I like Domestic scotches or something like Maccoboy they seem to be my caliber.

I enjoy the Toque Raspberry Menthol, Whiskey and Honey, and the Toast and Marmalade. I find them to be a bit sneezy compared with my favorite WoS snuffs.

I like the Toque SP Extra and the Whiskey & Honey. I didn't think I liked Rasberry Menthol but I went through it quickly, so...? For my body and nose, they're milder snuffs, and not as long-lasting. Sometimes that's just what I want, though.
