Wilsons Jockey Club is a faithful reproduction of the scent needed to overcome a horse stall on the heath of Newmarket circa 1750. A gentleman's association whose members share the passions of equine sport racing as well as the popular habitude of snuff-taking. A gentleman would use a tobacco powder to mask any unpleasant odors one might encounter around the track and clubhouse. The solution was to envelope the tobacco with a heavy floral bouquet accompanied by musky juniper and soapy perfumed aromas. This astute remedy is light colored with a medium coarse grind and medium moisture. There is a mild burn when sniffed but quickly dissipates and is immediately replaced with a fragrance induced hit of nicotine that is notable. This snuff is often picked to win, place and show.

Tatiana Romanova

Jockey Club has nothing to do with horses or the men who race them. Named for a Day Lily this floral snuff is high in nicotine, relatively moist and of slightly coarse grind. Floral without tasting like perfume, it offers-up a short burn upon uptake that does not linger. Somewhat feminine, it tastes like a Cosmopolitan. Seductive, Jockey Club is perfectly matched to syrupy vodka shots, straight from the freezer, and caviar blinis. I fantasize of Tatiana Romanova, languishing on the bed of her Orient Express first-class compartment, with a tin deeply hidden in the pocket of her fur coat, neatly tucked next to her service revolver.

New Favorite

Awesome snuff! Perhaps my new favorite. I'm not generally a fan of your usual men's colognes but this snuff faintly reminded me of a cologne that I cant remember exactly which. But i was a big fan of F&T's Morlaix and there was a floral scent in that which reminded me of the floral hint in this Jockey Club. A little citrusy thing goin on. Maybe bergamot? Or something like it with a mildly spicy tang? I often do snuff when working on farms whilst shoveling, uh, crap (to put it as bluntly as a New Englander might) as I get a nic hit and cover up less seemly smells. Well, this one I instead liked to take with me for my town runs as it gave me a kinda noble social feeling. I like a lil burn in most my snuffs and this has a good amount. I like making personal blends but have yet to with this, though I think it'll mix well. Maybe, with some willie Pete's when I want an extra jolt.

Good stuff! Highly recommended.

I received this as part of an assortment. Not wishing to ruin the first snuff, I decided to not read any descriptions or reviews. Wow. First impression was someone had rammed a spray bottle of perfume up my nose and doused it thoroughly! I took several more pinches over the next few days to give it a fair chance. No luck there. After I checked the official Wilson's of Sharrow web site , I discovered that it is what I thought: a snuff scented with a perfume! Not for me! Still, I'm glad I had a chance to try it and I'd recommend it to anyone who likes heavy perfume.

Wilson's of Sharrow's Jockey Club is yet another excellent snuff from the Sharrow collection, and for me you could easily attribute it to a time and place. I imagine walking through an infield of a horce race track, or perhaps a stroll through a meadow or a garden, and taking a small pinch of this wonderful snuff. I stress the word "small" because the snuff is quite powerful - it definitely has a large soapy, cedary base to it which I find rather pleasant, albeit snuffing too much of this fine, dry, and sand/tan coloured snuff can lead to a throat burn for the unaccustomed. This snuff is definitely worth a shot if you are looking for something outside of menthol, fruit, or heavy flower oil-based products.

This is a delightful snuff. Jockey Club is an old style of snuff, and this particular example has a feel of tradition to it. It has the scent of an old-fashioned gentleman's cologne: sweet and complex but is not at all overpowering. In this respect it is far superior to the Samuel Gawith version, which is far less subtle with a rather artificial edge. It is moderately fine and moderately moist, which makes it easy to take, and probably a good introduction to the delights of snuff. Despite the growing number of snuffs in my collection, this remains the one that travels with me in my coat pocket.
