CUSTOMER REVIEW: This is a revitalized traditional Bernard snuff. The predominant flavor of spruce needles is very intense. Combined with a moderate amount of menthol, this snuff's quite refreshing. It's a nice occasional snuff.

It’s very strong. It doesn’t pretend to be anything other than what it is. For me, this is more of a specific/niche snuff. Hunting season. If you’re out and about and need to wake all the way up, this is what you want in your pocket. Not an everyday, but it will always have a place.
In Canada, the indigenous population traditionally brewed spruce beer during the winter months to help prevent scurvy. Spruce beer or "bière d'épinette" is a traditional soft drink of the québécois dating back to the times of Jacques Cartier's first visit. This snuff brings back childhood memories of my grandmother making bière d'épinette in the kitchen of her Plateau Mont-Royal walk-up on a sweltering summer's day.
This is my favorite snuff at the moment. A lovely evergreen scent is backed by a not overpowering mentholated boost. The aroma is lasting. A very easy to take snuff and one I will always keep on hand.
An easy snuff to take, this snuff has a very prominent menthol front. I'm not a big fan of heavily mentholated snuffs, and this particular one borders on an unpleasant amount of menthol to me, though doesn't quite cross this line. The Tannenbaum or white fir flavors are evident, though not overpowering. It is coarsely ground with a mild to moderate nicotine content that takes a bit to come on, though is very pleasant. The tobacco flavors seem to be muted a bit by the menthol, though it does seem to plug me up a bit, so it might just be a "me thing." This is not my all day snuff, though is flavorful, pleasant, and gives a nice balance.
