Samuel Gawith Celtic Talisman is a robust mixture of quality cultivars that are blended to offer rich tobacco taste imbued with a mellow fruity flavor with certain floral notes. The fruit is a macerated cherry infused with vanilla that surrounds the scent of a meadow after a rain intermingled with a sweetness that perfectly rounds out the mix. The color is medium to light brown, the grind is medium fine, the moisture is at mid point. The nasal assault is present, short lived and tolerable but the aromas linger while the nicotine provides a more than expected jolt of endorphins. Pipe smokers may want to transfer their well loved smells directly to the nose. Happy snuffing.

This is another of Samuel Gawith's more unique offerings, an old-fashioned ambrosia-type snuff brimming with sweetness and heavy fruit notes. The medium-fine grind and moderate moisture content make the snuff incredibly easy to take, allowing it to deliver a wallop of black cherry, blackberry, blackcurrant, almond, brandy, and vanilla notes springing from the tobacco base. Subtler impressions of smoke, earth, toffee, chocolate, biscuit, leather, and wood round out the mix. Nicotine content is respectable enough but is far from overpowering. My only real gripes with this snuff are that the sweetness can often be overpowering and that the combination of additives sometimes caused an odd stinging sensation in my nose and throat. This would definitely not be a snuff I could take on a regular basis; however, it would be an enjoyable indulgence every now and then. I could see fans of sweet, fruity snuffs losing their minds over this one.
Relatively new to nasal snuff. That being said I thoroughly enjoy this blend. A nice grind and a decent wallop up front... then great notes of cherry and vanilla!
It smalls like a wine dipped cigar not in a bad way but not really something I enjoy. Smell lasts a long time. Would recomend if you enjoy the smell of wine dipped cigars
Medium brown medium grind and medium moisture. In the tin it smells of a dark cherry soda. Burns as soon as you take a sniff. The very first scent is like brand new leather(not the cowhide type)..then comes sweet goodness I can only describe as cotton candy! Lasts a long time, just below annoying. A great once in a while dessert snuff.
This is a hit with me. Light brown in color, a medium to fine grind.The moisture content is medium and gives a nice burn. The scent is of the pipe offering of the same name. A little black cherry vanilla with a nutty hint in the back ground. The Dr.pepper or Mr.pibbs of the SG line.
This is one I may order in bulk. As this tin dwindles down quickly.Good for any time of the day you like some desert. I believe it has a nice nicotine level too.
