Very faint bergamot, nice plain tobacco flavor. Dry, fine grind. Dryness probably because of the bullet. Low nicotine for my tastes. Trying to be SP but not, need to try a fresh can. There are better ones out there in the SP category. Something is just missing, J&H SP or WoS Best SP are much better. Plan was to test them out with the bullets but that was a bad idea. Bullets dry up and you won't get the full experience. Get a can, if you like it then get a bullet.
This was the first snuff I ever tried, so it took a while for me to get used to what was going on in my nose. Once I got the hang of things, I realized that this snuff has taken me back to my childhood. More specifically, my childhood breakfast. This snuff reminded me so much of opening up a box of Fruity Pebbles or Fruit Loops. Its like they ground up my favorite childhood cereal, and added it to a snuff mix. I know that probably sounds weird, but I love it! Great Snuff!
This is the snuff that forced me to learn how to sniff fine grind tobacco. Before I found Original, I had always avoided toasts, scotches and any other fine grinds. I preferred moist, medium grinds.
But the flavor of Toque original forced me to learn the proper method - I just couldn't resist that SP flavor any longer!
As this sits in my nose, I often ponder its ingredients. As I'm writing this, I'm taking the last pinch of my 25g tin and am truly sad to see it go. This has been my all-day snuff all week and I've been going through this tin like a madman. I have nothing but good things to say about this snuff. Fine grind and relatively dry, this is a bit difficult to take without hitting the throat for a newcomer to snuff, but I would still recommend it for a new user. Toque has once again proven itself worthy of the most picky snuff-takers with this incredible SP.
I don't think I'll ever get sick of this stuff!
I'd give it a 10 out of 5 if there were the option.
Wow, this is an amazing SP. With all the other interesting flavors Toque has come up with, I wrote off Original as something I couldn't be bothered with. As I grew to love SP's more and more, it was only natural to try Toque's. This a 5-star snuff. I could use it all day and be comfortable with it. Combine with the fact that Toque is on the cheaper side, and it's a no-brainer. This is kind of snuff I would buy in bulk. The flavor has the bergamot/citrus thing that one would expect this style to have. You're not supposed to judge a book by it's cover and I wish I would have realized that 'Toque Original' is definitely more interesting than the title sounds.
