J & H Wilson Medicated 99 is definitely an ode to menthol and eucalyptus. This snuff has the amazing property of restoring the sinuses with the cool and bracing flavor of peppermint camphor. A medicinal snuff that truly works as advertised. Some floral undertones may surface along side the exquisite tobacco taste that is a hallmark of this brand. The grind is rather fine and presents a moderate discomfort in the nose while providing an ample hit of vitamin N. May help in refining your definition of mentholated snuff.
Available in a variety of convenient container sizes.
J.&H. Wilson's M.E.D. No. 99 is a classic medicated snuff and has stuck around as long as it has for a reason. Delivering delightful notes of menthol, black pepper, peppermint, camphor, bergamot, and lemon zest framed against a backdrop of lavender, eucalyptus, sea salt, earth, biscuit, and grapefruit, this snuff offers a ton of complexity, though it remains expertly balanced throughout. Absolutely nothing is out of place or out of focus. Moisture content is relatively low. The grind is fine and dusty, so care should be taken when tooting this snuff. Nicotine content is fairly high. Even though I tend to prefer more moisture and more of a medium-fine grind in my medicated snuffs, this one still managed to thoroughly impress me. Again, it's a classic. It is a snuff that anyone with any level of interest in medicated snuffs really should try.
Hands down my favourite. I will be honest, I haven't tried hundreds of different types, but of the dozen or so i have tried....Medicated 99 is my favourite. Wonderful blast, and nothing at all earthy or mellow about it. This is for the menthol lover.
I really like this snuff, the menthol and tobacco are wonderful, my only wish is the scent lasted longer
Medicated 99 is one of the most classic menthol snuffs, which has so much menthol, that it can make your nose numb for a couple of seconds if you take a very large pinch. Lots of eucalyptus, and lots of nicotine also. A contender for my favourite snuff, and one I enjoy any time of the day or night. It has some of the highest quality tobacco out there for its base flour, which comes into play a couple of minutes into a sniff. If you haven't tried a heavy menthol snuff before, this is a good place to start.
