Friar Ramon Pane is a gros ( coarse ) milled Indian cheroot tobacco, fermented with a concentrate of leaves boiled with Maldon sea salt and lightly cased with a tincture made from Tonka beans and Vanilla pods.

Named after the poor anchorite of the Order of St. Jerome, who accompanied Christopher Columbus on his second voyage to the New World in 1493 and on his return in 1498, is credited with introducing to Europe the habit of snuffing ground tobacco, which he had observed among the Taino and Carib people of the Lesser Antilles.

NB: As with any natural tobacco product, artisan nasal snuff can be susceptible to mould if it is not stored correctly. All of our snuffs are heat treated before packing to ensure an indefinite shelf-life whilst in the original, unopened containers. Our snuffs are traditionally made without chemical preservatives and we recommend that once opened the snuffs should be kept in the tightly closed brand container and stored in a refrigerator. Only decant using a clean, dry implement.

Very Good!

This snuff is dark and a medium coarse grind. While I can’t identify the listed scents, tonka bean and vanilla iirc, the cheroot tobacco is sweet, and it’s salty, and has an overall nice scent. It brings out to mind, at least for me, the feeling of the Caribbean, and I can imagine Friar Ramone enjoying something similar, back in the days of the Spanish Conquest of the New World.
