I was very glad to notice GH Irish D back on stock at Snuffstore
(it's still listed there and at MrSnuff's shop), though suspected some
kind of a system error (as we all know, this snuff has been discontinued).
Had a small chat with Snuffstore's assistant, who confirmed my doubts,
telling me GH Irish D being out of stock. I went ahead, though, and
included it in my order.
Guess what, I didn't
get GH Irish D. I found SG Irish D in the parcel instead. I was sure it's the same old
good SG Irish D Light renamed, but I was wrong. They differ like day and
Irish D (mostly-lamina base, high-density, uniform fine grind, medium to low HDT-like moisture, all in all akin to F&T HDT) :
Irish D Light (stem base, lightweight, dry, uneven coarse and dusty grind):
Both snuffs are available at snuff.me.uk. It seems it's the last and only online store which still has some tins of (apparently discontinued) coarser SG Irish D Light.
P. S. The tin of Irish D wasn't vacuum sealed, only carelessly taped with a thin red tape.
P. P. S. There used to be the third one, Irish D Original, made by Samuel Gawith and described as "dry, fine, pale yellow, plain, toasted, single tobacco base", which I haven't tried, but the properties described pretty much correspond to the present Irish D. Could it be the same snuff, Irish D and the long gone Irish D Original?
