I recently purchased a 1.15 ounce tube of W.E. Garrett Scotch Snuff off of Ebay. The seller stated that it was from a tobacco shop that closed in the late 70's and was from a case of 24. The condition was fantastic as the metal top and bottom showed no signs of rust and the label was perfect. Aside from the 70's style print it could have been brand new. Curiosity forced me to open it up and give it a try. I've never tried W.E. Garrett before so I had nothing to compare it to. It's basically like snuffing petrified cardboard with a a nicotine kick but again, I have nothing to compare it to. I know pipe tobaccos and cigars age well and I have plenty of both in my cellar but I'm not sure about snuff. Especially after reading that the reason one of the online snuff suppliers quit carrying SG Red Crest was because they throw away tins after 2 months and they realized they were throwing away more than they were selling! So I guess my question is, are vintage snuffs meant to be more of a collector's item or can they be consumed and enjoyed? Any thoughts would be appreciated.
