Lundy Foot is a finely milled, toasted, high nicotine blend, named in memory of the 18th century Dublin snuff chandler and Michael Larey, the "Irish blackguard", who inadvertently invented Scotch (scorched) snuff when he fell into a drunken stupor and allowed tobacco drying in a kiln to roast.
NB: As with any natural tobacco product, artisan nasal snuff can be susceptible to mould if it is not stored correctly. All of our snuffs are heat treated before packing to ensure an indefinite shelf-life whilst in the original, unopened containers. Our snuffs are traditionally made without chemical preservatives and we recommend that once opened the snuffs should be kept in the tightly closed brand container and stored in a refrigerator. Only decant using a clean, dry implement.
The title says exactly what I said after first smelling the contents of the tin. Dry like you would expect, but not difficult to take. Definitely a new favorite!

A complex, rich, bold snuff. It's a finely ground powder. Smells very strongly of leather, charred wood, some earthiness and a slight hint of vanilla. I'll have to grow into it a bit more, but this is delicious. 4 out of 5 stars.
My collection of SWS snuff is quite extensive, but this is the one I come back to again and again. Lundy Foot is strong, very finely ground, and easier to take than most snuff this fine and dry. This is a non-scented snuff with a whole lot of character.
While it is reminiscent of the 'Scotch' snuffs made here in America such as Garrett or Brutons, it's just not the same - it's far, far better! It has that characteristically smoky scent that a Scotch snuff should, but it doesn't overwhelm like the American snuff oft does. Additionally, there's just the finest hint of a sort of floral aroma.
Taking Lundy Foot reminds me of walking in the meadow next to my old neighbor's farm as a kid (quite specific I know). It's simply wonderful snuff, and my all-time favorite. My hat goes off to Mr. Scott for continuing to make such a magnificent product; a true masterpiece!
Aroma and snuffability put this one at the top of my toasts list. The blend of tobaccos used produces a scent of delicious depth. It is dry as are all toasts, but something about the grind seems to make this one a little easier to take. If you like toasts and have not tried a SWS snuff, Lundy Foot is a perfect starting point. 5 out of 5 from me- no doubt!
