I like this snuff. I have just tried it for the first time and it was the type I was seeking after really enjoying Schmalzlerfranzl Brasil Dopple Fermentiert (what a name!)
Honestly, I have so far not been able to detect a significant difference between the two, which is not a bad thing at all, and might be that I need to spend more time with them back to back to note subtle differences.
Postillion has a nicer painting on the label... on that note, I really do like the artwork on most of the Bernard's boxes.
I find this has a sweet but not cloying scent that lasts and has a very satisfying nicotine level. Seems to build and build which is a trait I appreciate in the Schmalzlers.
Wish I could find more to differentiate it from the Doppler but I really like them both so no complaints there.
Take a big bite of black homemade licorice. This snuff is moist and hearty. I like mixing this one with a little whisky honey Toque.
If Bernard Klostermischung is the court-jester, then Postillion is the king.
The two schmalzlers are similar in grind, humidity and colour but whereas Klostermischung is quite savory smelling, Postillion is sweeter and more complex. Ever since the formula for Klostermischung changed, Postillion has become my daily snuff. I cannot fault it, it's an outstanding snuff for all situations and if you lie down after taking it, prepare for a nicotine headrush!
Brings back memories of opening a can of unsweetened Fry's Cocoa mixed with leather and tobacco. A pleasant after dinner snuff enjoyed with a glass of Suntory Toki after a nice meal of black bass.
One of my favorites right along with (and similar to) Winterpris & many by Rosinski. This is sweeter than Winterpris, with undertones of chocolate, vanilla and a fruit I can't identify. Overtones of cinnamon & smokey schmalzler.
