Samuel Gawith Kendal Brown Original is one of the crown jewels of English snuffs. This meticulously crafted mixture of fermented tobaccos offers an aromatic and full flavored taste. The traditional recipe includes a citrus aroma intertwined with a peaty, herbal and smokey bouquet providing an intoxicating pleasure. The color is dark; the texture is moist; the grind is coarse. These qualifiers assure a delightful sensation in the nose with no heat at all but provides a very nice nicotine kick. This item should be included in every serious snuffer's collection. Cheers and have a pinch.

I’m a novice, and I’ve recently gotten into snuff. This is one of my faves so far. When I try to describe this to people it sounds like it would be disgusting because I use words like “barnyard” “horse piss, but in a good way.” It’s really unique and delicious. I love it.
This is one that I really like. It is easy to use in the tap box. It is pretty dry, and comes out nice and easy. The flavor is heavenly tobacco. Like when your in a walk in humidor. My only issue with it is the aroma doesn't stick with you very long. That may be normal for an unflavored, non mentholated snuff though. Has a decent strength too.
Thanks for the fast delivery!
I was looking for a snuff without additives like menthol and such, however,
it couldn't find it here in The Netherlands.
So, based on the reviews here I bought this snuff, risky I know, but I know this brand produces very nice pipe tabacco so why would their snuff be anything less? How right I was! This is my second snuff, but I don't feel the need to try anything else for the long time being. As far as smell is concerned, it is everyone taste to it's own. This is the pure stuff snuff, the way I prefer it.
5 out of 5.
I started to take a liking to WoS Kendal Brown so I decided to give the Sam Gawith version a try. In comparison to these two, WoS has a slight perfumed scent to it, SG KB dosent, but the leathery-salty-peaty smell of a Kendal Brown is apparent in both. WoS is brown but not as dark as the SG version, and WoS KB is ground a little finer.
Now the SG KB Orig is a really dark brown moist snuff, that leathery-salty-peaty smell is very apparent and it is the overall scent. The grind is around a medium plus and fairly easy to take. This snuff, upon taking a pinch will burn really good and fill your nose with that leathery-salty-peaty aroma. This snuff burns pretty hard and is up there nicotine wise. I think the soaring burn has a lot to do with the grind as it is somewhat coarse, and will get your nose running pretty good. I really like this snuff, as many people do. I plan to throw in an order for the other SG KB variations as the Kendal Brown scent would give a nice base to different scents. 5 stars out of 5, highly recommended for lovers of dark robust snuffs.
It surprises me that no one has mentioned the wonderful citrus note which, to me, steps up to the front of the recipe. Despite being a strong tobacco snuff, the citrus (which I have been told is NOT bergamot) adds a refreshing kick.
The other element worth noting is the fluffiness of the flour. This is not a fine, flat snuff. It is nice and fluffy and has remained so in my tins for quite some time without losing fluff or moisture.
