CUSTOMER REVIEW: Has a slight tendency to stick together (though not as much as most other finely ground Indian snuffs), so I'd call it medium moist. That moisture makes it far better consumable, than a drier state would. Shouldn't be too challenging for newcomers. The flavour is complex, though the totally outstanding main actor is Rose. But there's something slightly dark and deep about it, which come from Musk, Sandalwood or both or something different, I just can't really detect it clearly. But the effect and taste is great, long lasting and exotic (that's if you're not from India). But although it's all that, it's by far not overwhelming. The dosage is perfect imo. The tobacco taste is completely masked, though. But then there are plain snuffs for that.
I really do love the scent of this stuff, but every time I try to sniff it.... it burns like nothing I have ever tried before. I don't know if it is the nicotene content, which is quite decent, or some other ingredient, but this snuff makes me cry.. literally.
3 stars for a wonderful smell and nic hit, but no more because I honestly can't use it.
Dholakia Ganga 25g
I tried this as part of the Jewels of India bundle, so I got it as part of a set. I'm glad I ordered it finally because I was dying to try some more Indian snuff. That said, I would have been disappointed had I ordered this one by itself because I'm less than pleased by this scent. Normally, I'd be alright with a rose scent, but this rose smells more like an old lady's perfume than a floral arrangement. Ganga does have a pretty good nicotine content and I will use it. Dholakia has better snuffs than this.
