Janta White Horse Gul is a plain and dry snuff that lets the tobacco flavor shine through. There is a bitter and smoky taste that is quite pleasant. The powder is very fine and light in color with a silky texture that contains a very substantial burn accompanied by a proportionally equivalent hit of nicotine. A wonderfully powerful snuff with a definite Indian flavor.
Available in a variety of convenient container sizes.
I grew up right next to a gravel road. During hot summers, if we went without rain for more than a week there was a cloudy, dusty plume that lingered in the air behind every passing vehicle.
This little tub of WHG was that dry, and that dusty. I couldn't get near it without it slamming into the back of my throat. Pinch, spoon, back of the thumb: didn't matter. I could feel the stuff entering my lungs; I declared it unsnuffable.
Not wanting to waste what was obviously a high-nic snuff, I dumped it into my handy mortar with a dose of coconut oil. The grind is way too fine to call the resulting concoction a schmalzler, but effectively that's what it is. And it's quite enjoyable, now that I can actually get it to stop in my nose. There's a smoky nuttiness that isn't quite a toast, but not as woodsy as a scotch. And nicotine a-plenty.
For me it's at its best after a few bumps of something bright and floral, where the powerful smoky counterpoint provides a depth to the lingering scent, making it last longer to the senses.
Got this in the variety pack. The first hit really hurt. So I set it aside for a while. Worked on some of their other flavors. I was drawn back to it and the white horse. My first sensation was something to get used to. After that I suspected a note of jalapeno, imagined I suppose. I soon found disappointment at the bottom craving more. Strong hit, strong nicotine. Not for the faint of heart. I will buy again.
