Poschl Alpina is a well rounded snuff that offers a buttery schmalzler texture that is dark, fluffy, moist and provides a fruity aroma of berry, fig with a fresh spicy mentholated ending. The nose feel is quite mild and provides a moderate nicotine kick that is long lasting. The recipe seems to balance the fermented tobacco taste with a refreshing blend of drupe and spice that is easy to take and very refreshing.
Available in a convenient 10 gram dispenser.
Also enjoy a discount for a box of 10.

Redbull and amostrinha both was my go to snuff for years but I decided to try this alpina and omg! Even tho they are all different this one has the best scent and taste I have yet to try. Wish they came in 30gram cans
I have been snuffing off and on for 20 years. I just tried this snuff for the first time, and I am blow away by how good it is. The aroma lingers for hours and hours after the snuff. Nice slight menthol burn initially. I get a little run after a few minutes and blow after 5-10 minutes. Enough lingers around that I get the aroma for hours afterwards. I love it. My new favorite.
Alpina is a snuff that I had seen hyped up so much that I dreaded trying it. Fortunately for me, this turned out to be a snuff that lives up to the hype. Upon cracking open the tapbox, aromas of menthol, dark fruits, and dark chocolate come pouring out. Once this snuff hits the nose, the snuffer is treated to a gorgeous, balanced blend of menthol, dark chocolate, pine, peppermint, straw, grass, bread, brown sugar, black cherry, date, fig, blackberry, and plum impressions. There is something of a slight lemony note too. I also pick up on indistinct floral, herbal, and spicy notes that I fail to place. Angelica, maybe? Perhaps a little cinnamon? I have no clue, but then again, it doesn't bother me in the slightest. The snuff is of a clumpy, fluffy medium grind with just a touch of coarseness. Moisture content is medium, perhaps just a hair or two higher. Nicotine content is more or less medium depending on the bump. I could take this one all day and never get tired of it.
First nasal snuff I bought and tried and was blown away by its flavor . On the first initial sniff you get slight menthol taste with a little floral notes thrown in , give it a minute or two and the menthol calms down and turns into a berry chocolate aftertaste . Mild nicotine buzz but very easy to take for first timers !
