A blend of oriental tobacco, Virginia, and Barley. All have undergone a process of fermentation at the end of the original additive mixture of Polish Virginia cultivation of Dark Gotard's Wine. Added flavors include blackberry and mint.
Medium coarse grind, easy to take. Great blackberry flavor with a slight hint of menthol that doesn't overtake the berry. When the menthol wears off, the nice scent of blackberries remain. Its aroma is that of a box of fresh blackberries, with a noticeable tobacco undertone. Makes for a refreshing nightcap before going to bed.
I bought this without any great expectations, due to the various bad and indifferent reviews I'd seen on other websites. What a nice surprise! When I eventually coaxed some out of the tapbox, I found it to be medium to fine grind, moist, and the blackberry scent was there immediately. In the nose there is menthol rush, not overpowering, followed by berries and lastly a nice earthy tobacco scent. Maybe I was lucky and got a very fresh box. Good, balanced, fruity snuff, and great value at £1.57.
The grind is medium, the moisture level is low to medium. the tab box works for this one. Beginner friendly. The black berry scent is immediate but quickly drowned by the mint over tones that open the sinus as a coolness feel, then the black berry returns in all its glory. Personally I not a big fan of medicated snuff,But i can see this to be of value on those dry days when I get stuff up. This has a great clearing effect and lingers for quite awhile. I recently had some fresh black berry and this scent is right on the money.
This is a excellent blackberry flavor with musty overtones and may be mentholated but I'm not sure it's got something but different than other menthols I have tried, very good none the less.
