My initial use was a shock. It had a strong burn and abraded my gums somewhat.
However, after passing that stage I find that I love it. I use it by itself as the taste is great but often mix it together with Makla Rouge.
My only complaint it the tins; they leak sometimes when it is very fresh, and they can be very hard to open.
This was one of the biggest mistakes in my snuffing life (the other being Taj).
Don't believe that "pea size" BS over there, it's gonna dissolve your mouth tissue no matter how little you take. And not only when THIS is inside your mouth, but a few hours after you take it out. Yes, the nic hit is strong and all, but you can as well use Fire & Ice or Cheeta or Majestic Elephant orally if you need the said nic hit, and with no affect on your gums.
So as long as you're not into dissolving-your-body-alive kind of pleasures, don't bother trying this.
I was bit put off by some of the previous reviews but decided to try this spit tobacco. I wrap mine in tissue paper to keep it together. Unlike say the Fire & Ice, this is an oily collection of plant material. The initial burn was intense for me but after subsequent use that initial burn has died down. I find the taste pleasant, but it is exotic so I could imagine others not enjoying it as much. I have a high nicotine tolerance but the nicotine hit from this made me forget about wanting a smoke. All in all, a fine product to which I shall return
Do not get this. Burnt a hole in my gums after 10 minutes in the lower lip. Burnt off the top layer of skin on the inside of my lip as well. It was like instant leukoplakia. If you dont know what that is look it up. This stuff scared the crap out of me, not to mention the little tin had a picture of a guy with mouth cancer on it. I will never use any oral tobacco ever again. And I've been a grizzly wintergreen dipper for 12+ years. Now I will only use nasal snuff. That's how bad this stuff scared me.
After using this once, for maybe 10 minutes in the lower lip, I will never use oral tobacco ever again! And I've been a grizzly wintergreen dipper for 12+ years. This literally burnt a whole in my gums. And burnt off the top layer of skin too. This stuff is very very destructive. It scared the crap out of me. It was like instant leukoplakia. If you dont know what that is look it up. I would strongly advise no one get this.
