very good value in these tubs-- not the clear tubes shown in the picture, but a more stout, short, white tub with good threads. kept the snuff quite acceptably fresh. This is good, plain, tobacco snuff. smells earthy, leathery, slightly smokey, and generally fantastic, if a bit short lived. Quite moist, and fairly coarse, but very easy to take. no horrible throat drip for me here. Nicotine is strong, but to me, nothing outrageous. Seems a little bit less smokey than the tinned dark I tried, but for the price really nothing compares.
