A strong, dry, finely milled snuff made by blending three types of Virginia leaf and a little Punjabi Rustica with unique and rare Perique tobacco. Named after the small area of land near New Orleans where it is exclusively grown, St-James Parish Blend is a pungent, fruity, high nicotine snuff.
Read about the origins of St-James ParishNB: As with any natural tobacco product, artisan nasal snuff can be susceptible to mold 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.

El nombre es por el Perique que contiene. También contiene Virginia y Punjabi Rustica.
El aroma del Perique está buen sutil al igual que el Virginia. Da la impresión de ser tostado, quizás por el Perique. Fácil de tomar.
¿Volvería a comprarlo? Puede ser
The scent is of tobacco complexity. Once snuffed it gives just bit of burn that quickly dissipates to a beautiful symphony of of tobacco flavor's, With a ever so slight sweet barnyard under tone. It's a five star master blend and least I mention a killer Nic hit that lingers on into the night.
The tin note is bitter chocolate with tobacco. When taken, the tobacco comes to the front, and the chocolate note recedes -- it's not like some of the other chocolates where it's like you snorted Nestle's Quik or something.
I'm not getting any specific tobacco type -- maybe some of you with deeper pipe palates will be able to pick out Virginia or Perique -- it's too subtle for me. I don't find it particularly fruity except for maybe a tiny hint of chili -- if you've ever made Alton Brown's hot chocolate recipe, this is very close, if he included tobacco...
Supposedly the Punjabi Rustica gives it a nicotine kick, but I'm not getting anything like that after doing it three times in the last 15 minutes while I write this.
I'm giving it four of five stars. If I ever work through all the other chocolates I have, this would be my choice to re-up.
REALLY good snuff, i'm new to snuff and this is my current favorite.
It is pricey but definitely worth it! It has a great nicotine rush and fine burn, the grind/moisture content is perfect. It's hard to describe the scents of this one and thats one part that keeps me coming back. I guess its a bit toasty and I can smell the barrel aged perqiue. Definitely an artisinal hand-made snuff.
This is my current favorite, I just wish I could get it in bulk. Try some and you will be spoiled, I still enjoy my irish22 but I wish I would have just grabbed another 50g of this. I pray that sir walter scott NEVER stops making this fine snuff.
Yes, I do store it in fridge as intructed by the canister.
This stuff is amazing. Worth every penny. Yeah, it is expensive, but after one sniff, I am a huge fan. It is a little more coarse than I am used to (Wilsons and McChrystals). You can definitely smell the Perique. One of the best snuffs I own.
Needless to say, I will be buying more of the Sir Walter Scott's blends!
