Here is my best explanation:

'have no recollection of counterfeit tobacco's origin' is the definition.

I can't tell whether this defines the answer.

'counterfeit tobacco's origin' is the subsidiary indication.

'counterfeit' becomes 'forge' ('forge' can be a synonym of 'counterfeit').

'origin' says to take the initial letters.

The initial letter of 'tobaccos' is 't'.

'forge'+'t'='forget'
