I agree with the comment on Olde Mill quality. But it's more than that. Daniel takes his blends to a totally different place than other blenders. His approach is both from a tobacco and from a culinary perspective. He marries the two into something far above what anyone else is doing. There's Sir Walter Scott's line of course, but Daniel seems above that with his attention to unique and singular tobacco blends. I'm very, very proud he is an American blender.

Layers and layers and layers. That's what I love about his snuff. Each pinch has layers that build, wax, wane, develop. And if you stick with the same OM snuff throughout the day, the way those layers work their various magics change, too. ALCHEMY, I TELLS YA!

Still Toque Whiskey and Honey.

I'll probably fridge it after today - it's a good snuff, but I can't take it for more than a few days before it becomes a bit old hat.

Let's get this whole thing taken care of at once! This morning, up to Noon, I'll be dipping into one or more of the following:

Viking Dark
F&T Santo Domingo and/or Princes
NTSU Black
Gawith Kendal Brown

There. That aught to do it.

Oh! And BTW...I found a new vendor of snuff gear on Amazon...so...low cost shipping to CONUS. I'm not recommending the vendor yet, but they did get my order for a sweet looking titanium snuff tool (spoon-like) assigned a tracking number in just a few hours. So there's that much.

See the storefront here:

Its a real class act as far as I'm concerned! Even when I screw up its fairly well behaved.

Getting the technique down is helping me a lot. Getting it to stay mid nose helps the burn, and prevents the sinus drain bit of discomfort.

I have heavier sniffs, but they are all small, which I expect to last me a long time. I want to try some brighter ones - lemoncello, lambic, etc. If the tins are kept in an airtight box together, will they go "bad" (dry, cross contaminate, etc.)?

Some snuffs will give you a burn regardless. I seem to get a burn from McC O&G every time. It's delightful.
