Snuff is made by curing and drying tobacco leaves, then grind them into a powder. Snuff is inhaled or "snuffed" into the nasal cavity (into each nostril), delivering a swift 'hit' of nicotine and a lasting flavored scent (especially if flavoring has been blended with the tobacco).
Aldo Raine is seen snuffing grounded tobacco from a a German box, most likely looted from the dead soldiers, throughout the film.
- Tobacco snuffing was popular during the 17th century and the practice declined during the following centuries as cigarettes became more popular.
- The snuff box is displayed at Yourprops.
