Carottes glacées au miel et aux épices lyonnaise is a classic French plat d’accompagnement traditionally served with a variety of grilled or braised meats. The sweetness of the carrots balances the umami of the meat. Sweet and floral, French Carotte brings the same balance to tobacco. Being both of medium ground and medium moisture, it is quite easy to take. This khaki brown snuff is a wonderful side dish best enjoyed as a part of a whole. Its low nicotine content prevents it from stealing the show. Delicious in accompaniment to a slowly savoured meal, I particularly enjoy it with Sunday Roast.
Fine, medium snuff. I find that it keeps moving up my list of favourites. It is easy to take without fear of burn or hitting the throat. The first scent is a nice musky sandalwood followed by a floral bouquet. I don't find it to be perfumy at all, its not overpowering. Lasts a long time.
Nice, aromatic, pretty mellow, not too heady. This is a good one to try. My contention is that you should give this a whirl, if nothing else you will know if you like it or not, by doing so you just might have a better feel for the British snuffs. Some of these F&T's are way too heady for me- but this has the balance and reserve to make it really quite nice! Imo this is much better than the Wilson's of Sharrow French Carrote- which I just can't do. If you can't handle the Bordeaux or the Macouba (like me), you might still like this.
This is a great sweet snuff. I can taste the sandlewood, but the floral notes are had to pick out. Moisture is nice, Nic hit is great. I could use this most of the day because I enjoy it so much. Also like the F&T tins.
Heavily scented, fine ground with medium moisture content. Overall scent is musky and floral. Some have described F&T's French Carotte as overwhelmingly like grandmother's perfume. I can understand this comparison but have found that with a larger dose it reminds me less of grandma and more of a fine autumn evening. This blend has definately grown on me as I make my way through the tin.
