Does anybody have some snuffs they prefer when they're a bit 'stale' ?
I've been trying a lot of snuffs cheaply via tap tins , but often find that - economic though they are - the snuffs can dry out a little.
To that end, I was loving the Santo Domingo and thought I'd buy a big tin of the stuff. It was completely different out of this tin, the smell of violets, lacking before, was right at the forefront as well as the fabled 'barnyard aroma' , all to the good.
The texture though, was so moist it was like demerara sugar! Too wet for me to keep comfortably in my nose. I've let it dry out for a few days and whilst still moist, I've got the perfect balance between moisture and aroma, lovely stuff. Does anybody else have snuff that they enjoy when they're not quite fresh?
(Speaking of tins, my newsagent happens to stock toque snuff, @roderick
your tins are the best bar none that I've had thus far! There's somehow no spillage out of them even when full!)
