In A Movable Feast, Ford Maddox Ford tells Ernest Hemingway that: “A gentleman will always cut a cad.” According to the makers of Fribourg &Treyer, the recipe for Princes dates all the way back to the Regency period. A likely concoction for Prinny himself, it is bracing like a slap across the face by a pair of bespoke gloves. Black like a used espresso puck, this high moisture snuff leaves the throat clear of any unpleasant residue and has no burn or fever to speak of. Its uniquely clean flavouring is a blend of cat urine and civet that is refreshingly pleasant. Martial, the high nicotine content drills your senses to full attention like a Regimental Sergeant Major.
As a first review I chose this particular product because of its unique characteristics.
The 2 reviews I read here touch on the earthiness, although neither makes mention of the ammonia sensation I get from it. Reading elsewhere, I believe this may dissipate if left open.
The grind and moisture do in fact make it an easy snuff to take, if one can value a beginner's opinion. Having shared with coworkers, some really take to this, others do not. Those that don't seem to agree that it is the ammonia sensation. Personally, I would buy this again.
I start every day with a generous pinch of this fine snuff. I can remember being struck with the uniqueness of the aroma when I first opened a can of this. It is highly floral, like a flower garden in springtime. The snuff is also course and dark. The nicotine content I would describe as medium. You will quickly develop a taste for this fine snuff and will smile every time you reach for a pinch. Princes has become my favorite snuff.
Moist, earthy, Staight tobacco flavor. Nothing to get in the way. Easy to tack and no chance of thoat hit. Nic level is good. This is the one I go too when I don't want to concintrate of trying to figure out what else is in there, greta snuff.
