A new offering from Samuel Gawith with a clean pine and menthol scent.
Got my snuff package today and this tin of Gawith Pine Ice snuff. Not bad at all think they should add some pine wood, pine sap flavor and maybe cedar wood flavor too it! Dont know what grows between a pine tree and a cedar tree maybe take a walk and find out add a couple more flavors! Pine ice is a good deal for 4 bucks! Has some menthol flavor to it!
I had once tried nasal snuff in the 1990s as a teen and was not a fan, can't recall what brand, bought at tobacconist in the US. Part of the problem may have been snorting it like a different powder...
I love S.G. pipe tobacco, and lately realized that they make snuff as well. Ordered this, Dr. Verey Plus and Kendall brown on a lark. When the tin came in I thought "this is a lot, it will last for years." Now I realize I should have ordered 10! The flavour (smell?) is incredible. The pine/menthol sounded odd but it is perfect. A hint of cedar or sandalwood in the back? I think I read that, but it is complex and stimulating as well as refreshing. I feel a bit worried that my coworkers think I have begun using drugs, but I can't put it away for long. Dr. Vereys is good too and seems similar but this one is just more... balanced.
Upon opening the tin there's a very strong smell of pine, specifically holiday pine incense. It's wonderful. Then come notes of slight earthiness that play with the piney notes. There's also olfactory notes of high quality leather. That subdued, pleasant smell of Thomasville leather couches. Some spices, maybe nutmeg in the background. This is refreshing, due to a mentholated quality that isn't extremely powerful, but helps to open your nose to the piney forest profile. Nice cold winter air, breathe it deep and smell that rich evergreen forest. 5 stars.
The only thing I was a little sad about was the tin didn’t have the picture. But that doesn’t matter to the quality of this snuff. It is amazing with a natural pine smell!
Just received a tin of this snuff with my recent order and this one is one of the best. Would put it right up there with F&T Patchouli as far as originality goes. Has a fresh Pine scent with a very light IMO Menthol background. Very refreshing and just a wonderful snuff, This is one I will do my best to never be without it is that good.
