Transported from somewhere outside Jalalabad in Afghanistan to the border of Pakistan near Torkham by truck. It is then transported by another battered vehicle across Pakistan via Peshawar and Abbottabad crossing to Kashmir then, of all things, stuck on the back of donkeys to get it over the Pir Panjal range.
After traversing the mountains the beasts of burden follow a road where it is picked up by guys driving homemade trucks with converted generator engines. It is then dropped off at various village stores from the Jammu Kashmir district down to the Punjab.
From there a trader from Amritzar finds his way to the local market where our Indian contact picks it up and sells us a few tins. We managed to procure a few dozen tins of the stuff, but we are not sure if we will be able to get any more and if we do, it will be in erratic small quantities.
Dusty like Peachy Carnehan returning from Kafiristan in Rudyard Kipling’s The Man who would be King, this snuff is a testament to all the roads traveled in its journey to my door. Sold in a can that arrived so dented and rusty that I sliced my hand while prying the lid. I was happy that my tetanus booster was recent and hopefully still offered protection. It is so dry that using it makes a bit of a mess. Smelling of goat, Afghan White is a pure nicotine hit unencumbered by any artifices flavouring. Producing symptoms of fever, it draws mucus into your sinuses at such a rate that it is hard to hold and avoid blowing your nose. Rogue & renegade, it is an unmitigated pleasure to consume and has rapidly become one of my favourites. A tin Afghan White is nothing less that a voyage of discovery akin to the first time I heard the Dissidenten on a ‘80s mix tape.
So let me just start this off by saying the snuff by all means is a five star snuff, it has the possibly the best nicotine punch ive ever tried maybe besides six photo mg madras, BUT i deducted one star because the lid of the tin i recieved was rusty, and i almost cut my finger on the rusty tin lid!!
I’m more into snuss and makla myself but decided to try nasal snuff . Im a big fan of afghan black so I decided the nasal stuff . At first it was hard to take, I would end up getting it on my lungs but i got the hang of it. I love this stuff , the nic hit is good and theres no menthol ( i hate menthol) . I tried a few other snuff and this one is my favourite so far with makla neffa in second . If you’re a fan of strong nicotine this is the stuff you want .
Now when I first received it I was sad as I probably lost a lot of the snuff from the can in shipping... this was one of my first order, so only later did I find out I could have contacted MrSnuff and probably gotten some help. What I did have left is fantastic. I put it in a baby food jar and came back to it and noticed a very strange and strong ammonia scent which was easily taken care of by leaving the lid off the jar for a day. This is one of the strongest snuffs that I tried that I could really feel the nicotine. I think it’s stronger than cheeta, white elephant, and white horse. I really do enjoy this one. It has a really nice burn that some people may find unpleasant but I think it is lovely. If you like white snuffs and or have a high nic tolerant your looking for something that will really sort you out I recommend getting a can of this Afghan white snuff!
