On Mount Fitzwilliam, overlooking Nassau Harbour, stands Government House, the official residence of the Governor General of the Bahamas. From 1940-1945, here lived the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, during his tenure as Royal Governor. If you walk from its gates on Duke Street down George Street to Bay Street, you will come across the Nassau Straw Market. With its mixture of mint, patchouli, talcum and moth balls, Patch smells exactly like that part of the city. Very high in nicotine and of medium moisture this burn-less snuff offers quite an adrenaline rush. To quote Dr. Hunter S. Thompson: “buy the ticket, take the ride”.
I would disagree with the other reviewer on this. I totally smell the patchouli scent. But perhaps they are used to an artificial patchouli cause there are lots of those. This smells like something you would buy from an entrepreneurial "head" at your local jam band festival. Very earthy. There is some other stuff going on. Doesn't smell exactly like patchouli oil. But it is very strong. Maybe even stronger patchouli scent than I've smelled before. I love it. I'm not the biggest fan of patchouli myself and hardly wear it but this is a really good take on it. Pleasant. Lasts a while too. But not too long. Feeds my nic craving slightly, but suffieciently I'm not exactly a good judge of that cause i think I've a high tolerance. Seems to be good quality tobacco and wasnt too dry in the small tap tin as one of the ones i got from F&T was. Highly recommended to those that like to try something different
This Patchouli Snuff is very good and something a bit unexpected, it is not a "Hippie" type of Patchouli IMO but is earthy and a bit "dirty" which may be attributed to the tobacco base. Typical WoS grind so is a bit dry, fluffy and powdery. Wish more Snuffs were available in these type of scents and would LOVE something like this in a Schmaltzer.
Not the Patchouli that I remember from the 70s, but still a wonderful flavor. Minty, leathery, some peat, slight soapiness. Great all day snuff. med moisture, med nic hit. Another great one from F&T.
WOW! I am glad that I picked this one up! What a wonderful snuff this is. The Patchouli is complimented with a tiny touch of menthol. There is a slight burn on first pinch, but after that the aroma is amazing. This is something I could use all day.
