Fribourg & Treyer Morlaix is another blend of fermented tobaccos, botanical and spice garden aromas, dispensed in different apportionment. There is a tropical floral scent of vanilla commingled with a nutty, almost buttery, flavor then followed by a slightly citrus ending. The recipe is unique and well worth exploring as a snuff that will help define what is, a complex blend. The color is almost sienna, with medium moisture and a medium coarse grain. The nicotine level is present without overwhelming and this mixture has a mild burn in the nose. Enjoy a pinch today.
Available in a variety of convenient container sizes.

I'm getting used to this perfume snuff ! It's not like the German nose candy .
Old leather shop , out in the woods and some exotic herbal on a light note and baby powder .
Morlaix is low in nicotine and of medium moisture. It seems to be a savvy combination of F&T’s Bordeaux and French Carotte. It tastes like a Dragée or Jordan Almond. Morlaix is a small city in Finistère that used to be the biggest port in Brittany, during the time of the French West India Company. La Compagnie des Indes Occidentales would transform tobacco from les Antilles at La manufacture de tabac Morlaix, to finance the colonisation of Nouvelle France; serving in a similar function as the Real Fábrica de Tabacos in Seville. At its apex the massive complex employed 2000 people, with ships docking directly at the factory quay. Morlaix is an agreeable post-dinner snuff, which nicely counterbalances the tannins of a fine claret in a rather civilized way.
I am a beginner and agree with the 40 year vet review. It is very nice without the big bite us beginners go "is this what I expected?" I find myself using this in the evening with a cup of coffee or wine. Am recommending it.
This F&T classic is tremendous. With a slighty citrus top note, this mysterious blend mellows out to a fully immersive experience that I can only describe as the smell of a tropical Victorian greenhouse. It is like walking into a copper trimmed glass house, hints of flowers, slightly dank, warm and wonderful. As is typical of F&T, the grind is silky and fine and does not like to be rapidly snuffed. Take this on your hand, and simply inhale. This is meant to be sipped gently, gradually. Four out of five, only because I simply cannot put my finger on the scent components. Anyone care to shed some light on the secret?
