Bernard Amostrinha. Medium coarse grind, moist and fluffy. It has a sweetish, dark cocoa tobacco smell. There is also a faint scent of menthol or camphor. I don't get a burning, cooling sensation from it, just a nice, warm, minty feeling that doesn't stay in my nose for long. The sweetish dark chocolate smell slowly becomes less pungent, and the fermented, hay like base tobacco scents come up.
Amostrinha has a medium nicotine level, but the grind and moisture contents make it easy to take huge bumps in a short time. Great stuff, even though I sometimes get a slightly irritating throat drip from it.
Starting with a roasted leathery smokey meaty flavor, with a slight mentholated hit that doesn't last, and intensifies the flavor. Delving in later to the flavors of cocoa, and sometimes I note an even later aroma of fermented flavor.
I can’t believe there isn’t a review of this yet. This is my first review and I felt it necessary to do so. This snuff is the end of the line, best blend I’ve ever tried. Most importantly, unlike other Bernard Schmalzlers, it has no throat drip whatsoever. Overall it’s rich Smokey tobacco. No synthetic or fruity scents. At first you’re hit with a rich earthy tobacco, barnyard and hay. Very light barnyard, not off putting at all. Then a mix, the richness and cocoa plus menthol. But not menthol in a strong way, just subtle, totally perfect. The menthol and cocoa are fleeting and leave you with long lasting rich tobacco, bacon and biscuits cooked on a wood stove. After a few pinches I ordered 100 grams and still feel the need to double that.
