Harmony of good tobaco with tincture made from Tonka beans and Vanilla pods, brings to mind something resembling cacao, or gently coffe? Not bad.
really is quite nice, the scent reminds me of captain black original pipe tobacco. It's hard to stay away from this one. The description is accurate regarding the scents of this great snuff
This snuff smells great and I love Sir Walter Scott's snuffs however for me this is FAR too coarse. It is so coarse I don't really like sniffing it. I have however been smoking it in a pipe by putting a pinch or two on top of the tobacco in my pipe. This snuff smells amazing but unless you like a very, very coarse and moist snuff then this is probably not for you. I even tried to grind it and it wouldn't really grind (I tried with both a mortar and pestle and a bladeded machine grinder.) This grinding did not help very much.
A very good offering from SWS, but not as pleasant as some of the others. Was expecting more "kick" and a rawer, stronger flavor profile from a cheroot-based snuff. Effect is somewhat more bland than would be desirable. However, has all the excellent characteristics in the nose as do other products in this line.
I'm just now trying this latest creation from Sir Johnny and am unable to stop myself from reaching for my snuff bottle filled with it. I get the flavor of cigar blended with a Sumatra tobacco with a wonderful top note of vanilla. The tonquin is very subtle but provides a nice finish. All in all another masterpiece from a gifted artisan. I'm glad that I picked up the 50g tin.
