Fribourg & Treyer Morlaix is another blend of fermented tobaccos, botanical and spice garden aromas, dispensed in different apportionment. There is a tropical floral scent of vanilla commingled with a nutty, almost buttery, flavor then followed by a slightly citrus ending. The recipe is unique and well worth exploring as a snuff that will help define what is, a complex blend. The color is almost sienna, with medium moisture and a medium coarse grain. The nicotine level is present without overwhelming and this mixture offers a mild burn to the nose. Enjoy a pinch today.
Available in a variety of convenient container sizes.
Morlaix is low in nicotine and of medium moisture. It seems to be a savvy combination of F&T’s Bordeaux and French Carotte. It tastes like a Dragée or Jordan Almond. Morlaix is a small city in Finistère that used to be the biggest port in Brittany, during the time of the French West India Company. La Compagnie des Indes Occidentales would transform tobacco from les Antilles at La manufacture de tabac Morlaix, to finance the colonisation of Nouvelle France; serving in a similar function as the Real Fábrica de Tabacos in Seville. At its apex the massive complex employed 2000 people, with ships docking directly at the factory quay. Morlaix is an agreeable post-dinner snuff, which nicely counterbalances the tannins of a fine claret in a rather civilized way.
