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.

Highly Recommended

"Sweet as Honey" it says on the label, and it's true. This American Scotch is sweet, with a delicious tobacco flavor that makes you want to take repeated pinches. I don't dip tobacco, but clearly this snuff is made for dipping as well as sniffing. It has no other scents other than honey, just plain tobacco. Almost a toast snuff, Honeybee is light and yummy, and has a serious nicotine kick too! Highly recommended.

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.

Tates Like Honey

This snuff is awesome, while trying to get used to the readily availible scotches here in the southern united states i picked up ALOT of american made here in the U.S. and have found some that are o.k and some that are not so. This one is one that i realy enjoy. It has a smokey sweet flavor, reiminds me of cornwood sweet dry snuff, it is sweeter but i don't think it has quit the nicotine hit but the flavor is very good. tastes like honey!!

Honeycomb

There are not many American snuffs in production anymore, and of those that remain, few stand out as being unique in terms of flavor. Most American scotches have a strong smokey flavor. This one is something different altogether. The only way it really compares to the other American snuffs (except maybe Maccaboy, which is also a unique American snuff) is that its finely ground, pale in color, and very dry. Although Honeybee is all of these things, its still relatively easy to take, easy on the nose, and shouldn't present much of a problem to a newbie as long as they are careful. Given its ease of snuffing, you can take large amounts of the stuff. If you get any drip from this snuff, its sweet tasting and not distracting or unpleasant. The scent is that of honeycomb, the flavor is not too strong but that is a good thing. It comes in a small plastic container that looks vintage. I'd recommend this to any fan of American snuffs that wants to try something different from the many, many smokey scented snuffs available from the U.S.A., and any snuffers who enjoy a sweet snuff.

Best American

I am fairly new to snuff but I enjoy swisher honeybee and believe it to be far and away the best american sweet. The package doesnt lie it is in fact "Sweet as Honey". It is a staple of my homemade mixes it will take the bite off of a hard hitting scotch such as Brutons. I mix one part honeybee one part bruton and one part menthol to get a deliciously sweet mentholated hard hitting snuff to tame the nic craving without worrying about crying.
