A delicious floral scent, almost identical to the version by Fribourg and Treyer, this snuff is distinct form any other. Medium brown tobacco, medium grind, and slightly moist, the scent develops in the nose, increasing in intensity.
When blown out, the scent lingers for a long while. A very wonderful snuff of the old school, this recipe is a few hundred years old, and still fresh and interesting.
NB: The 450g container is not in stock and is considered a special order. This will cause a short delay in delivery time. You should expect a delay between 48 hrs and 1 week.
While similar to the trip to Grandma’s house proposed Friboug & Treyer’s Bordeaux, this baby has the Big Bad Wolf waiting for you her bed and now he’s wearing a Fez. Packing quite the punch, Grand Cairo is more like the stiff Gin & Tonics served to the officers of the Imperial General Staff, than anything my Grandmother had to offer. I suspect that it is a strong anti-malarial and would be my first choice on any adventure requiring the use of either camels or pith helmets. Lawrence of Arabia, in a can.
Truly the “Best SP”
I am not very partial to the snuff by Wilson’s of Sharrow called, “Best SP”, and in fact, I am not a big fan of SP’s more generally. But as far as this one is concerned, there is a reason that the “...recipe is a few hundred years old.” I greatly enjoy this snuff. Other snuffs that I like so you can decide based on your own tastes if yours are similar to mine are: Plain, Irish no. 22, Rows of Sharrow, Diplomat, and Matador. I have tried almost all of the Wilson’s of Sharrow snuffs now, and have decided that these are some of my favorites and I don’t like many of the ones not listed above. Enjoy!
Floral but spicy!
I find this an excellent snuff! It’s grind is quite fine and dry so it has a good nicotine delivery. Good but not overwhelming burn on first take. All around very satisfying. Can take it all day.
Fantastic tobacco of medium/high moisture and a burn full of flavour. Strong doses of bergamot, orange and neroli. One of the best SPs out there.
I love SP and this my be my favorite its like an SP on crack!!!
This is like an on SP on steroids!!! it has a wonderful boquet of bergamot lemon and orange, and a hint of something else there, its amazing, possibly my all time favorite snuff.
