After removing the wrapper and taking it right away it will be kind of harsh on the menthol. So give it time to breath. I would recommend to leave it for two weeks taking a pinch every other day to season the nose. Then it is just a joy to take. Still strong on the menthol, but not as powerful. The tobacco is dark brown with good moisture and easy to take. The raspberry aroma is there from the beginning. Not too sweet or artificial. Very nice. I also like the tobacco note with this one.
Another I got in an assortment. I love fruit snuffs and this one delivers! Sweet, lovely raspberry with the perfect menthol kick. This has become my daily snuff and I've hooked a few coworkers on it as well. I find the nicotine hit to be perfect. Thank you Wilson's of Sharrow for making this snuff and thank you Mr. Snuff for carrying the assortment it came in!
Surprised by the menthol kick on this one. Off the bat, menthol and raspberry seem to be an odd pairing, but WoS pulls it off. The flavor seems to come in two waves: wave one is menthol, while the secondary raspberry wave comes on a few minutes later. Good occasional snuff, but would get fatiguing after a few hours.
This is not for everybody, but some folks will really like it. I've kind of lived on this for some stretches of time. What you need to know, and what is the odd part is that, yes this is raspberry and menthol, however this also has eucalyptus. Which I think would turn more than a few away. That being said, if you like it, you'll probably like it quite a bit, and for quite a while, but it's also a fragrance that one can get tired of. Also it should be mentioned that this has a pretty strong menthol kick. If it sounds good I'd suggest trying a small tin at first.
There is only one reason why I'm giving this snuff a bad review: false advertising. There is no indication in the name or on the tin that this snuff has menthol in it--something I just can't handle.
I have no problems with mentholated snuff; lots of people like them. I don't happen to be one of them, and hence think whether or not a given snuff contains menthol should be marked clearly in the name or label.
For me, buying mentholated snuff in a container not marked as such is a waste of my money, as I can't use it. It's a shame, as the other products by Wilson's I've tried are very good.
