I got off to a rocky start with this snuff. I was still a beginner when I first decided to try it, and hadn't even mastered using the easier snuffs, let alone high dry toasts. I took a sniff and it went straight to the back of my throat, a very uncomfortable sensation. But I was persistent, and I tried and tried again until I got it right. And thank goodness I did, because it has become one of my all-day, go-to snuffs.
The flavor is wonderful, and seems to become stronger as you use it more and more. I get buttery, nutty, almost bread-like flavors. There's a little bit of smoke, but it's very balanced against the other flavors. It's very rich. The nicotine level is very satisfactory.
I can't get enough of this stuff. I would highly recommend it to anybody, even beginners. Sure, it's a pretty difficult snuff for a beginner to use, but it really taught me how to control my sniffing. Once you master this snuff, everything else will seem easy by comparison. Conversely, if you're a more experienced snuffer and you somehow haven't tried this stuff yet, buy a can now. I sincerely doubt that it will disappoint you.
