Snuff Of The Day (SOTD)

I don’t know where to post this so I’ll post it here. This is from a package of these things I found in a drawer. It is a thing to clean earwax from your ear and on one end is a little spoon that is a perfect snuff spoon. I got them at Walgreens a few years ago. They are cheap so you can misplace or loose them freely. Just thought I would pass this along.

In truth, several but I did try McCrystal’s Wee Dram and Fine Keg. The Wee Dram which I assume is Scotch Whisky flavored was kind of “meh” but Fine Keg was an interesting hops flavor that came across nicely. Both are minor and I doubt I would go for the Medium size tins. Now off to something very special - Sicilian Burst! 🤩

I bought the McChrystal's minor sampler as well...some nice options in there. I like the Aztec. It's pure chocolate.
 
Have you tried SG Celtic Talisman yet?Definite keeper.
I haven't, I believe it was out of stock on my last order...as was most of the popular SG blends which is why they didn't get ordered unfortunately.

I have to say that so far I don't understand the tap box hate...I'm loving mine. I guess the one's I have are Bernard and probably oil moistened which prevents them from drying out quickly but I don't know. They are super convenient and I'm loving them.

You just answered your own question 🤣 Tap boxes reduce English snuffs to grit and dust, and they need breaking open and the whole contents rehydrating. Oiled snuffs won't lose moisture through evaporation

I simply prefer doing a pinch. Just can’t get the snuff box method down. I loose more product than getting it into my nose. I’m in possession of my last two tap boxes now. I have small snap lid containers to carry a day or twos worth of snuff.

Yup! With a tap box, I tap onto the back of my hand, then pinch from there.
 
I much prefer the boxcar method personally. Not really sure why but it just seems to work much better for me. Even with the snuff boxes I ordered from MyTobaccoShop I have been using them as a tap box and not pinching.

Today my snuff has been WoS Irish No. 22 a wonderful toast if you enjoy them. HDT is good as well...not ready to say which one I prefer. I'm still feeling them both out.
