The golden tobacco base is quite mild and of medium grind, a bit on the dry side. It is quite easy to sniff with a bit of care. I believe the tobacoco here to be Virginia-, as there is a grassy undertonee to this. And yes, the top note is of wild meadow honey, a bit floral, mildly sweet and completely delicious. Is it worth the price? Absolutely. You'll want to decant this into a smallish glass jar to prevent it from drying; it gets sandy when allowed to dry more than a few weeks after tearing open the 10 gram refill pouch. I love this! Your Wicked Uncle Squinty can't recommend this one highly enough.
Stargarder has a scent similar to Dreisener's, but milder and with less nicotine. It has a very similar grass-clipping scent, but not as strong and with a hint of something else -- something citrusy perhaps -- or maybe the background scent is just a product of the fermentation process, I don't know. I don't have expert nose for these subtleties. Stargarder is easier than Dreisener for me to take straight; I don't have to cut it with another snuff. It's still not an all-day snuff for me, but the summery, grassy scent is perfect for an occasional treat.
