Macouba is a village on the northern tip of Martinique where a mythical tobacco called Maccaboy is reputed to grow. William Makepeace Thackeray lauded it in his novels. Low in nicotine and of average moisture, this medium ground khaki-red snuff has a slight burn, right after intake. The natural aroma of rose in the tobacco made Maccaboy world famous. F&T’s version mixes-in the essences of rose, sandalwood and, to my nose, key lime. It is sweet and its combination of flavours make it taste like a Turkish Delight.
