Singleton's SC is a confection of tobaccos of the highest quality that are used to create a flavorful powder that is complete but not overwhelming. The natural tobacco aromas of moist hay, barn wood and a fragrant smoky forge jump out of the tin. Upon first pinch, there is a clean pop of menthol that is refreshing and then leaves room for the aromatics of fermented, fire-cured and expertly milled broad leaf cultivars. This snuff is a sienna colored, medium-fine ground and moist powder that has little nose burn and offers a pleasant long lasting stream of endorphins. This savant concoction can be an addition to any well rounded collection.

I have worked my way through two very different tins of Singleton's Super M to this point, and I tend to feel that it is a very good snuff, but it is likely not for everyone. Compared to many of the other Sharrow mentholated snuffs, Singleton's has a more restrained menthol presence and instead tends to highlight the base tobacco. The snuff is coarsely ground, dark, and of medium-low moisture. It delivers a noticeable yet not overwhelming menthol presence that underscores impressions of earth, hay, peat, smoke, wood, and leather. Something of a metallic tang can be picked up on the back end. The nicotine presence is powerful. Singleton's is a high nicotine snuff, and it is more than capable of knocking you flat if you go at it hard and fast. Overall, I feel that this is a snuff that is well worth a try, though it is more than a bit old-fashioned and requires some patience to fully appreciate.
I’ve been lingering over this tin of Singleton’s Super M for the better part of two weeks now; never really moving-on despite my backlog of snuffs to taste. Elusive when addressed directly, it haunts the senses when you ignore it. Vintage like an antiquarian bookshop, it tastes of menthol, manure and saw dust. First manufactured in 1870 by Singleton & Cole of Birmingham, it is now produced by Wilson’s of Sharrow by agreement with their successors and assigns. Moist and mild, it is a clean menthol snuff without camphor or burn. Simple, deep and melancholic, it is like sipping a mint julep while quarantined in a dark and lonely room with Dolores O’Riorden of “The Cranberries” singing Bertolt Brecht’s “3 Penny Opera” in the background.
This is a darker blend of tobacco along the lines of santo domingo, but instead of oils or florals it has a sharp menthol. I get a slight sour note (air cured virginia?) and lots of tobacco. This is a particularly good snuff with an earthy note. Nicotine is about medium and the menthol level is just right. This snuff just says "old fashioned" to my nose and I really enjoy it!
I notice only one review for this and after experimenting with 40-50 different brands and flavors i felt compelled to write my first review and give this 5 stars. It's got an nice menthol kick but some real tobacco, leathery flavor under it that really says quality to me. It's my favorite of all so far for an all around, every day snuff!
There is at least one other 'singleton's', from Africa, which was very different, flavorless and dry, don't confuse the two.
Just tried this snuff. I really like it. The menthol hit is smooth and the texture is fine and moist. Lasts a long time too. I am beginning to trend towards snuff that has more meat on it and this snuff fits the bill nicely.
