Another very pleasant surprise! A little powdery but when the right amount is taken, it's a sweet anisette paradise. If you really, and I mean REALLY want to enjoy the aroma of a pure anisette snuff with not very much menthol, this is certainly the one.
I guess you know that I am partial as well to Anisette, but even if I wasn't I'd still be hard pressed to not love this unique concoction. I get a nice pleasant buzz, especially in the a.m. from this one. The scent seems to last for a good 10 minutes or more and the sugary sweet smell is one in a million! Black licorice filled nostrils! Simply put, I love it.
There is a scene in Goodfellas where the character played by Joe Pesci talks about his bosses sitting around all day drinking anisette & coffee. The anisette to which he is referring to is made by a company called Leroux and the bottle vaunts its natural flavour. Anisette is not at all like the French pastis as it is syrupy sweet and drunk without the benefit of water. Stargazer is a good shot of anisette that needs to be consumed with strong coffee in order balance the flavour. I am not the greatest fan of this snuff as I am not a devotee of Leroux Anisette, either. If that is you thing I am confident that you will be pleased with its interpretation of natural flavour.
I'm Loving Star Gazer.
A Strong and wonderful blast of black licorice! reminds me of a taste of Sambuca after some great Italian food. Great on the nicotine side, fine grind and a normal brown color. Classic McChrystal's Quality!

My first purchase included this Anisette and the English Menthol. About this. BLACK LICORICE! Tastes just like the gummy black goodness and leaves the taste in the mouth. Good nicotene kick and great overall snuff. I will definately be buying McCrystals again. If you like anisette, this is a great snuff for you.
