CUSTOMER REVIEW: Aecht is an antiquated German/Bavarian word for 'genuine' or 'real'. Its almost the equivalent of saying 'Ye Olde' in English. 'Altbayerischer' means 'Old Bavarian'. So you get the general idea, its the real old fashioned Bavarian schmalzler.
I find it to be sweeter and less smokey than the Brasil types from Bernard. It has deep rich notes of maple syrup, and I even taste the dried figs and dates that others have mentioned. Excellent with a hot cup of strong tea. Nice nicotine buzz.

Even if you are not a schmalzler fan, this is a bucket list snuff that everyone should try. It is dark, rich, and sweet; molasses and maple hints. As another reviewer noted, it goes great with black coffee or tea and has a fantastic nicotine hit - a really good nicotine hit. The grind is a tad sandy, but overall this doesn't detract from a very nice, unique snuff experience.
I was expecting a sweet schmalzer when I first tried this and was very surprised by the pleasing dark tobacco, molasses and faint vinegar scent. The scent reminds me of old wooden novelty shops; it is really good snuff.
I've just got around to trying this after receiving it six days ago; couldn't put down the Magic Moments xD. First thing I've noticed about this snuff is it's very smokey. Very noticeable nicotine kick, too. It's a pleasant, easy to take snuff.
I love the scent. It reminds me of a brand of pipe tobacco I used to smoke in my youth. Will buy continously. Has to be one of my favorites.
I'm new to snuff so i can only tell you from a newbie that this is a good choice. Very moist and clumpy, bordering on messy. It doesn't burn at all and is very smooth. It is like a nice dark milk stout only easier to put into my nose. I get figs and dark chocolate. I will definitely keep this in my normal rotation.
