Taxi Red is a robust South African snuff that has a reputation for its strength. This well fermented blend of local virginia and rustica cultivars compromise the backbone of this powerhouse. The tobacco, when freshly tinned, gives of a very pungent aroma due to residual ammonia from fermentation, it is suggested to let the contents "air out" by leaving the cover off and letting the spirits evaporate. The stink, being a sign of freshness, may be the price to pay to enjoy this wild African tiger but does abate after a few hours. The initial flavor is of pure tobacco that is imparted by its terroir and reveals a singular flavor.
Unlike his brother blue, this blend of shredded leaves has been fermented with special attention to tabacum rustica for its potent nicotine benefits. Due to the coarseness of the grind, it is easy to take with little to no irritation. The color is dark, almost black and is very moist which delivers an extreme rush of pleasure that outperforms his brother blue. and cousin green, and delivers a memorable wallop of nicotine as well as flavor in every pinch. Be warned fellow snuffers, this one is real.
Available in several convenient container sizes.

NTSU was my favorite SA until my first toot of TAXI, which is now not only my favorite SA but one of my top snuffs overall.
Some like to air it out, but I like it best at it's freshest, when there's still a ton of moisture and aroma. I wouldn't classify it as barnyard at all, it's more of a rich sweetness, like freshground coffee (as is the grind).
Dark, coarse, and strong like bull.
I was hoping for a tin of horse dung, but not getting much barnyard sent. Mildly fruity aroma, very moist, decent nicotine hit. I much prefer NTSU Black
Very good snuff if you want to quit smoking. wicked. smells like straight snatch.
Purchased a plethora of snuff recently, for some reason I was most excited about this snuff. It is likely because I grew up on a farm in Wisconsin, all the reviews saying it has barnyard scent and ammonia which I already know I am fond of. I am very pleased with my experience it delivered what I expected. I could actually use a little more manure smell to be honest.
Much like ordering a taxi in real life this snuff was unimpressive. After reading reviews I was expecting a strong, pungent, ammonia/barnyard scented snuff. Unfortunately I don't seem to get any of that. This is a very coarse, and moist snuff which reminds me of Copenhagen dipping tobacco. I really wanted to like this but it's just too boring. If you are looking for a great plain snuff with substantial vitamin N then do yourself a favor and purchase a tin of Thor's Hammer instead.
