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.

Quintessential Sweet Scotch

As the name implies, confectioner's sugar (probably saccharine or other artificial sweetener, though) with a wee bit of honey. When you take a hit a sweet, light touch of brown sugar or molasses. It's truly a delicious American Scotch and it is also very easy on the nicotine as far as scotches go, I'd say less than the comparable Square, Navy Sweet, and Superior from Swisher I have. But don't let this comparison fool you, it is still a deadly strong snuff. As far as the leaf sourcing, it says 88% domestic and 12% foreign grown tobacco. The base tobacco reminds me of a lot of Swisher's chewing tobacco products, actually. You can tell they use the same leaf (Although I am sure all of their scotches are leftover tobacco from their cigar making, which is Swisher's bread and butter). Originally this was made by Lorillard and was called "Carolina Honey Bee" A killer dip as well as sniff.

Sweet. A little too sweet for my taste. The nic hit is good and the initial flavor isn't terrible, but the back drip tastes like powdered sugar in the back of my throat. I mixed some of this with Silver Dollar scotch and it was a lot more tolerable.

"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.

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.
