Nice! Rich, dark and full. I have not had the Frederick Tranter version for comparison, but I have had most of Wilson's SPs. This is a top notch SP. I find it richer in bergamot than Tom Buck and the Virginia tobacco in this has a nice leathery fullness to it.
Most Wilsons have a Zimbabwe tobacco, so the different character is evident here. It has more of a robust nature, I would say. Extremely satisfying. Courtesy of Snuff reviews: Xander

If this is a “top notch SP”, then I just don’t like SP’s
I’ve come around to the fact that I just don’t like SP’s I guess. If the Wilson’s of Sharrow “Gold Label” SP is considered a “top notch” SP, then SP’s just ain’t for me... they might be for you though! But I found it too chunky, dark, and moist, and didn’t really do anything for me.
WoS Gold Label - In my top 5
This is simply beautiful snuff. Although it is quite complex, it is one of those snuffs that I can take without thinking about it. It is all there, SP style tobacco, bergamot, tiny notes of floral, also something refreshing and maybe sweet(ish) and fruit(ish) which I can not identify. All these aromas come and go. The nicotine is there too, which makes it very satisfying. It is great. My recommendation for both beginners and old timers.
My first SP
This is my first ”SP” I have tried and all I can say is what a beautiful aroma. A great all day snuff that gives me a break from the menthols.
Wilsons Gold Label 25g
Wilson's Gold Label (which is exactly the same as Frederick Tranter's Gold Label) has proven to be my favourite day to day snuff.
When first starting snuff I found it to be rather harsh, the very minimal flavouring doesn't disguise the rich tobacco aroma & it has a strong nicotine hit.
With experience it's those exact qualities that i have come to love.
Wilsons Gold Label 25g
Gold Label, What does it mean? I take it won an award.This is an SP It is light red tint brown in color. The moisture level is medium. The grind is fine. This has some serious burn that is short lived and then the wonderful scent. Not easy to snuff I find it travels fast, so it get some getting use to. A stronger version of the Sp 100 being it has more of the same character. Very light and fluffy. I enjoy the citrus scent it has staying power.
