For some stupid reason in the early part of 2011 Imperial Tobacco discontinued the Top Mill No.1 in the large Vacum sealed tins. It is still available in the small tubs for the forseable future (until a big wig in a posh chair decides it's a good idea to remove another classic product from the market that is) We know many of you passionate snuff fans out there will be gutted to hear this but it is unlikley anyone up there will listen to your groans. As always the Black Swan Shoppe Specialist Tobacconist will be leaving the description here for our customers interest and reference.
Vacuum Sealed 70mm tin!
Top Mill No.1 Snuff is a popular finely ground snuff from J & H Wilson. You will be hard pressed to find anyone that hasn't heard of Top Mill snuff.
The top Mill is similar to the J&H Wilson S.P.No1 but has a hint of Citrus. The Top Mill is generally preferred by the more experienced snuff takers as finely ground snuffs are harsher and provide the effects they no longer achieve from coarser, damper snuffs.
The description above is open to interpretation. Every snuff taker will grade a snuff differently. The colour of the tin, the appearance or even simply brand preference can affect a snuff takers opinion before they have even taken a pinch. We have gathered as much information as possible on every snuff we stock and highlighted the most common traits reported. If you disagree with our description or feel the description may be unhelpful to other snuff takers we encourage you to let us know so we can re-evaluate the description.
