I picked this up for the good reviews. The nicotine is a medium and is fine by me. When I take it in it's easy and I can't really smell the vanilla. But when I opened the tin it was like a fig newton aroma. If you like different and new things try this it is awesome!
When compared to most Toque and WoS snuffs Elmos Reserve is quite coarse in grind. The vanilla scent is strong in it but not overpowering by any stretch. This takes a little more effort to get into the nose than just a normal breath but not much more. This is by far my favorite non-mentholated snuff. An amazing product you will not regret trying.
One of my first scented snuffs, this is a treat for the nose. Just enough moisture content to keep it in the nose without being too "clumpy". Smells delicious in the can and is even better in the nose! It's like snorting a piece of cake instead of eating it. Great vanilla hint that lingers. It'll make you want more.
I swear this is 1792 flake made into snuff.I haven't had the cob yet but I am sure it may be close.I love 1792 flake so when I tried this Elmo's reserve I was hooked.
The grind is fine and moist and has a slight burn but very minimal and short lived. Tonquin bean is the head liner here followed in the back ground by vanilla wafers. Surely a delight for the scenes.
As expected another fine product of SG co. The 25 gram tin is vacuumed sealed and is a great value.The scent lingers for an extended amount of time I don't need to shovel it in. So the nicotine level must be up there if it is the cob plug base tobacco. Now don't be hording all of the Elmo's the rest of the world should have a chance.
I was curious to try this snuff as it had been described as having a vanilla aroma. Opening the tin I got much more than that - a warm rich tobacco aroma which reminded me of an aromatic pipe tobacco. The snuff itself is dark and medium coarse in grind, the flavour just as hearty as it's aroma, with yes, a touch of vanilla in there somewhere, quite long-lasting in the nose and with a medium dose of nicotine. A very more-ish and satisfying snuff, perfect for winter evenings.
