It's quite a different experience to the usual snuff. The heavy fruitiness makes it a very good beginner's choice. It's highly delightful, but not at all candy-like. Very, very rich and a bit heavy. Veeeeeery long lasting scent, and it delivers the typical Schmalzler-'satisfaction'.
You feel very comfortable with this in your nose. Due to the moisture a bit difficult to shift up, but absolutely no danger of it getting too high. You'll switch to other Schmalzler from here possibly, but you'll keep one around anytime and for sure, you won't regret it.

Beautiful fruity scent of figs, plums, cherries. Delightfully moist schmalzler. This is like having a holiday fruit cake up your nose in a perfectly good way. It isn't overly strong and there's no bitterness. 5 stars, it's great.
Being new to snuff, I've been gleefully trying new ones and sharing my favorites with my son. I'm a fan of the fruit and liqueur snuffs from Toque, so based on this one's description and being fairly ignorant about the different styles of snuff available, I was excited to try this one. It's definitely not for me. Wet + sticky + dried-fruit scented = an effect I imagine equates to cramming a Fig Newton up my nose. Maybe I'll come back to the Schmalzlers later, but I don't think I'll be acquiring a taste for this any time soon.
Moist, Easy to take...........Like all Schmalzler's when snufed properly(read lots...lol) it gives me from and rear drip inevitably. It doesn't have an Liquor overtones unlike the Bernard Schmalzler which I adore!
It can most literally and simply be described as FRUITCAKE! Might sound offensive to some but this deserves to mentioned among the finest of all time. Everyone should try it once. The bags these come in are attractive but they fall apart VERY easily. Obviously this is intended to be added to a container! Back in the day those containers where Porcelain or Ceramic.........now they're plastic.......ouch.
The nicotine seems to be lower for me(not super low but not strong) but nicotine levels in snuff are subjective and can be difficult for even experts to discern(Unless your talking Indian Whites...lol).
Try this early in the morning on the patio with a nice breeze or for desert with a good book.
An absolutely awesome Schmalzler derivative. Obviously based on the already delicious Schmalzler D with added fruity notes. Not a specific fruit but more like a fruit punch/mix which is not overpowering the original flavors but present from beginning to end.
I am new to schmalzlers as a concept. I didn't know what to expect. It's really the texture of instant cake mix when you add a bit of oil and haven't the liquids - which after a bit of reading, is not an inapt description. The scent is very strong, and smells of what we in America call "German Chocolate Cake," chocolate and nut and powerful fruit. The weight of the added oil must make it more difficult to sniff, so you've got to give it a bit of a snort, but it doesn't enter the sinuses despite what you'd expect at that level of sniffitiude. Delightful.
