This is most definitely the best of the three American Scottish Sweet snuffs that I've tried. Real honey flavor, superior tobacco character, and a gentle hit of wood smoke in the distance, no off notes at all. A moderate Scottish burn, offset by the delicious sweetness, makes one want to take pinch after pinch, but be careful, it packs a respectable nicotine punch. This is my American Sweet Scottish snuff of choice. Fantastic, given the limitations of the genre.

Frozen Duck Blind

I am ashamed to admit that over the past year I have become a bit of a snuff snob and had a bias against this American snuff, probably because Swisher, the manufacturer, also makes vulgar sweet cigars. The George Washington Helme Tobacco company, originally from Helmetta, New Jersey is now part of Fat Lip Brands of the Swisher Empire, located in Wheeling, West Virginia. Quite frankly, this snuff is great. When you open the tin, it smells like pulverized pipe tobacco. Powder dry, this light khaki snuff consists of 88% American tobacco and 12% foreign; it has a low burn and a high nicotine kick. Without artifice, Honey Bee Sweet is honest and tastes, simply, like tobacco and honey. Very pleasant on the uptake, I imagine it well suited to focusing the mind and sharpening the senses at 5AM, whilst sitting in frozen duck blind with a 12 ga semi-automatic and a thermos full of Folgers’ coffee. I found it paired particularly well with Bulleit Kentucky Straight Bourbon and Hemingway’s “Across the River and into the Trees”. Americans do many things particularly well and this snuff is definitely one of them.
