Gawith Hoggarth CM is a well balanced composition of fine tobaccos that layer earthy and spicy aromas in a harmonious blend. The camphor and menthol is not overpowering and leave plenty of room for the herbal and botanical aromas. The color is light brown with a medium fine grind that offers a nice endorphin hit and the nose feel is present but not painful. A classic and refined snuff with a unique interpretation of medicated. Well worth a try, happy snuffing!
Available in a variety of convenient container sizes.
My package just came in and just out of curiosity, I decided to try this one first and I was not disappointed. I'm new to the English snuffs, so I didn't know what to expect. My first pinch was awesome! I love the cool sensation, and it gets better when you blow it out! Will be buying more of this for sure!
Being a huge fan of Gawith Hoggarth & Company as far as pipe tobacco goes.. I figured Id give their snuff a try. CM being included in my very first purchase from Mr. Snuff, I was very excited when I first cracked the tin.. there is a good balance between the base flower and topping which makes the experience that much better.. the Nic Hit is a 7/10 for me. Definitely worth a try!
CM is a lovely medicated snuff, still manufactured in the market town of Kendal in the South Lakeland District of Cumbria. In a little factory on the banks of the river Kent, this company founded in 1792, continues still to manufacture tobacco products, to this day. This light brown is without burn and delivers a gentle dose of nicotine, to perk up one’s senses, early in the day. It is a mixture of menthol, camphor and cherry. Without powder or artifice to swell the nasal passages, CM is a lovely midday stuff that accompanies well a Ploughman’s lunch and a Newcastle Brown Ale.
I just received my order from MRSNUFF yesterday and this was the first one i tried being my first GH Snuff. The color is light tan and moisture is fairly dry yet not super fine. The scent was not quite what i expected, it is earthy and unique for a medicated. There are some herbal notes that blend well with the earthy dirt like presence. The menthol/camphor is present but not a face blaster, but rather it adds to the scent rather than just focusing on the cooling effect. I did pick up a tap box since i wanted to sample this one before comiting to a big tin. So far i really like this one and have no regrets whatsoever with this purchase, well worth the couple bucks in my opinion.
I am not a huge menthol fan, but I love this snuff!
The combination of camphor and menthol make this a treat to snuff.
