Samuel Gawith Elmo's Reserve is the creation requested by an influential customer to commemorate his faithful canine, Elmo. The recipe calls for a special ingredient- tonquin beans. This unusual element imparts a very particular flavor to the tobacco that can be described as spicy and floral. There are hints of vanilla, dried desert fruit and almonds that create a memorable bouquet. The moisture is medium, the color is dark brown and the grind is medium coarse. There is little nose burn but ample nicotine and a long lasting aroma. This is a one of a kind snuff, do not hesitate to try some but beware it can be quite moreish.
Available in several convenient container sizes.

The description is right, this is a one of a kind snuff. Nothing else I ever tried is anything like it. In my opinion the vanilla and fruit and almond is there but its mixed together, almost as if it were in something like a chai tea mix. But I do have a bad sense of smell so take what I say with a grain of salt.
But I did smell something else. It was a field, a wet field, covered in fog and dew, early in the morning. The soil, which is mostly peat, is damp, and you can smell it mixing with the wet grass in the field. I see a man and his dog walking through this field in the early hours of the morning as the sun has just crested the horizon. He reaches into his pockets and pulls out a biscuit for his dog, and some snuff for himself. The snuff mixes with the flavors of his morning tea he drinks as he walks with his canine friend. They sit and watch the sun rise. Life is good.
It's a pleasant aroma, the kind you take for granted and don't realize how nice it is until one day you don't smell it anymore. It's an aroma that brings back memories in the kind of way that smelling your mothers cooking for the 1st time after spending time away at school does.
In my head, this is the aroma of this influential customers morning ritual with his beloved dog Elmo. Whatever the truth, I am happy they wanted to share it, because its a phenomenal and truly unique, dare I say profound, experience that I suggest you try for yourself. I will buy this again!
This is by far my favorite scented snuff.
It has notes of leather, vanilla, tobacco & a hint of boot polish.
It's very dark & moist, almost black, the moistness is great for blending with other snuffs that are extremely dry but it is not too moist to take on its own.
This snuff has a lasting scent, unlike some others that are nice for a minute then fade into obscurity. It will pair well with chocolate, fruits, coffee or even some dark spirits it really is quite versatile.
The nicotine content, while adequate could be higher & I often blend it with a dry snuff with higher nicotine content. Which gives the best of both worlds, great scent & higher strength, while the dry & moist combination makes for a lighter fluffier not moist but not dry snuff.
This is by far my favorite snuff. It is making my mouth water just thinking about it. Just the right amount of vanilla and sweetness. I just shovel it in.
This is by far my favorite go to snuff! It has a sweet Tonquin Bean aroma which smells a lot like vanilla. It is a dark snuff with a medium grind. Furthermore, it carries a pretty decent nicotine hit. I carry a 25 gram tin on me at all times! Bravo SG!
Very nice snuff. In my opinion a bit sweet to be an all day snuff but a perfect after dinner relaxer. The scent reminds me exactly like amaretto di sorrano liqueur. Tis very nice in deed.
