Samuel Gawith Keswick is the tobacco expression of the prunus armeniaca otherwise known as the apricot. This endemic English fruit has been a favorite in many culinary concoctions since the 16th century. In harmony with the meticulously chosen tobacco cultivars, this popular fruit imparts a plummy and savory note to this quality snuff. The color is light brown, the grind is fine and silky and the moisture is medium dry. The burn in the nose is mild as well as the nicotine hit but the feel last a long while. Upon trial, this one could easily be recruited to your collection.

This is one of my favorite fruit snuffs and honestly my pick for best and most consistent apricot snuff on the market. Keswick offers a very smooth, clean toot that packs an immediate wallop of candied apricot backed by impressions of vanilla, chocolate, biscuit, brown sugar, cream, toffee, and earth. Occasionally, I could also pick up on very subtle grassy, woody, leathery impressions and the odd lemony note too. Some people find a barely perceptible menthol presence in this snuff, but I never noticed it. To the best of my knowledge, this is a straight fruit snuff with no added menthol. The grind is medium-fine. The flour offers a medium-low moisture content and a nicotine content that falls somewhere between low and medium. It is very easy to take. One could easily do it all day. Just an absolutely lovely fruit snuff overall. Fans of apricot snuffs really should give it a try.
I am missing Otterhound which was the snuff that I enjoyed from SG , so I was looking to try something different. I ordered this and have to say that it’s very enjoyable! A mild and dry snuff for those who are new to nasal tobacco. Flavor will last awhile and the fruity apricot is perfect for an after dinner snort . This has become my go to for a mild nicotine hit. Excellent!!
This is one of the best fruit snuffs I know. It has a fine grind, a natural smelling apricot, very low, almost undetectable menthol, medium-low nicotine, and a very long lasting scent. The grind is on the fine side and the moisture is low, but it has no nose burn, rather soft, and opens the sinuses very well. This is a well made and easily repeatable snuff of high quality. If you like gawith original (apricot) you will really like this one also. I plan to always have some of this one on hand.
This snuff is great, very easy to take. Awesome Apricot scent. This could very easily be an all day snuff. Scent lasts a good while. Can't complain, would definitely recommend.
I've never tried this snuff before now, and it's very nice. Fluffy, golden tobacco, easy on the nose, the scent is spot on. Sweet, but not in a sugary way. The tobacco scent is the same as in other S.G. fruity snuffs. No menthol at all, this is a pure fruit snuff, but is quite different than Mc Chrystal's or Toque. I can see myself enjoying this one quite a bit. Perhaps not high in nicotine, but who cares? With repeated pinches it satisfies the desire for a pleasant snuffing experience. This is a fruit snuff I plan to keep coming back to.
