Creme de Figue is yet another superbly crafted snuff by Sir Walter Scott. If you've had Auld Alliance, the grind and moisture level is exactly the same, only with different aromas. While it doesn't have as much nicotine as Auld Alliance, it's still fairly strong; I'd rate the nicotine level at 6 out of 10. It's a demi-gros that's closer to coarse than fine, and the moisture level is fairly low (at least it was in my tin). These characteristics make for a snuff that's very easy to take.
As far as aromas are concerned, the vanilla stands front and center. However, in typical SWS fashion, the scent is not overdone in the least and is of the natural variety, not artificial. It smells just like a raw vanilla bean. Along with the vanilla, there are mild notes of wood and earth. The drip can sometimes be a bit unpleasant, but not nearly as noticeable as with Auld Alliance. Overall I'd say this snuff is simply wonderful!
