Eau de Cologne was invented in 17th Century by Johann Maria Faria in Köln, Duchy of Westphalia. The original recipe includes various citrus aromas, Bergamot being the most prominent. The heir to this product is a cologne called 4711, which still hails from Köln. Smoker’s Blend is a combination of this flavouring mixed with fermented tobacco. Bergamot is a hybrid of lemon and bitter orange – “bergamotto” in Italian from the Turkish “bey armudu” or “the Lord’s pear”. Refreshing, this slightly moist snuff is easy to take with no burn and medium levels of nicotine. It tastes like a nice cup of Earl Grey tea and warms the soul in a similar manner.
If you enjoy a fine Earl Grey tea the you will love this snuff. Wonderful bergamot aroma and flavour. Slightly dry in grind and texture so be careful when snorting.
wouldn't say that this is a coarse snuff. I find it to be a bit stronger SP style snuff. yes there is bergamot but not that much that it would dominate the snuffing experience. reminds me about Toques SP extra but I don't have that one now at hand to compare.
I'd say that despite all SP flavours tobacco still dominates nicely this S'nuff so maybe that's the reason why it's called smokers blend? I'm no smoker but for SP snuff there is no reason for me to not give it full points for satisfaction.
strong McCrystal style snuff. no too easy to take but satisfaction is quaranteed _3
Just the label itself caught my eye. The label is obviously different than other McChrystal’s offerings as the background is black and the letters S’nuff pop out in bold red. The label reminds me of the Grindhouse film posters of the 70’s. This was the first tin I tried out of my recent order and my favorite so far. The initial smell I got when I first cracked the tin was bergamot, straight heavy dose of bergamot with a rich tobacco aroma in the background. The tobacco is a rich brown and the grind is about a little less than medium. When you take a pinch its just that. You just sit back and enjoy the bergamot with peppery undertones. The bergamot aroma lasts quite a while and as it fades your just left with a rich tobacco flavor. Easy to take, nicotine kick is up there, being as this offering is a quit smoking snuff, not as fierce as Toque Quit though. I really like this snuff a lot and I will definitely get another tin on my next order. I keep returning to this tin, my wife even told me, “Just use a spoon to dump it in your nose, why don’t you.” Its really good!
Mildly flavored Bergamot. Somewhat coarse but soft. Very easy to take. Not oily or sticky at all so keeping clean is easy. Good for sharing with a beginner for an introduction to snuff. Not as strong as expected but I feel that may be a good thing as I can keep on using more. If you like this one you will like Tom Buck and other S.P. snuffs. The name is off putting as it relates to quitting smoking. Overall a good snuff to try.
