Poschl Lowen Prise is definitely a royal snuff. This kingly tobacco taste opens with a licorice flavor with hints of tangy cocoa followed by a medicated spicy taste and ending with the sweet scent of fermented tobacco. This powdered pleasure has a mid-moist, medium coarse and fluffy texture. The nose feel is on the level of tingle rather than burn but the nicotine hit is above average. There are reasons why this snuff is popular. Try some and see why.
Available in a convenient 10 gram container.

Normally, I'm not a fan of black licorice, but it works quite nice with this snuff. Sometimes. Many times I wish Poschle had non menthol options. I don't why they insist on making every damn snuff with menthol. Here, I think the menthol takes away from the licorice flavor. I don't taste any of the cocoa in the product description, but a nice soft velvety tobacco comes through after the initial licorice dies down. I've had many snuffs and while it's a far cry from bad, it's not a very memorable snuff. I think Poschle has much better offerings in their repertoire.

This snuff has really grown on me. I found myself continually reaching for it and as off two nights ago, tapped out the last kernals I could find. I really enjoyed using this, followed by Taxi Red or a strong plain dry snuff. The balance between licorise, spices and menthol is perfect. Delicate in the nose, with an intoxicating flavor. Not a fan originally, it somehow wore its way into my heart. This will always be in my rotation. I surprisingly found this an everyday snuff and was continually reaching for this tapbox throughout the day. Def worth a try...even if you're not a fan of licorice, like me. You might just be surprised and end up converted. I doubt I would try another licorice offering, but I'll certainly stick with this one. Hey...if it ain't broke, don't fix it.
I was impressed, nice menthol licorice. Working man's every day, got a kick to it .
My friend didn't smoke a cigarette for an hour after trying, he was blown away first time trying snuff.
From what I gather, Lowen-Prise is one of Poschl's more popular snuffs, and it is easy to understand why this may be true. Like the other Poschl snuffs I have tried, Lowen-Prise is gentle and approachable, yet it simultaneously offers a great deal of complexity and depth. The menthol is front and center in the nose without being overpowering or harsh. One can find delightful impressions of anise, camphor, peppermint, cola, juniper, fir, and wintergreen lurking just beneath the surface once the menthol settles. The tobacco base contributes additional impressions of earth, dark chocolate, grass, moss, wood, and straw to provide balance. The snuff is of a medium-coarse grind and moderate moisture. It sits in the nose very well, and the aromas it offers linger a respectable amount of time. The nicotine content is higher than one might expect, so this snuff also packs a bit of a punch. It can easily sneak up on you if you do a lot of it in one go. If you are careful with it and take your time in getting to know it, Lowen-Prise can provide a tremendously rewarding snuffing experience. It is a snuff that anyone seeking to gain a familiarity with the Poschl range really should try.
Licorice and sugary menthol medium nicotine not a regular daily use for me but I don’t like licorice slight cooling on the nose but very light menthol
A true grind with a top notch vitamin N punch. Medicated afterthoughts accompanied with nasal bliss= must have
