This extra-strong madras snuff is best known for lacking in exotic spices, but most importantly a refreshing sense of tobacco manifested as a buttery and nutty flavoured snuff. Included with 6 Photo M.G Madrasd is an exotic type mentholated flavour that sets a strong sensation with a milder exotic and nicotine hit. This blend, in particular, is niche as it is a more than a distinctive blend of effective South Indian Burley and Latakia tobaccos.
No added flavours or menthol, just a more natural roasted tobacco aroma all within an 8g or 100g container. This is a very satisfying snuff product to use if you're aspiring to quit smoking. Expect a good sense of nicotine while you scratch the surface of an age-old tradition of the Madras snuff industry.
CUSTOMER REVIEW: No exotic spices in this snuff. Just good tobacco fried in ghee for a buttery, smokey snuff. One sniff and you'll think you just took a drag from a cigarette, and for that reason it's a very satisfying snuff if you use snuff to quit smoking. Some might even suggest this has a mild cigar like quality.
Always enjoyed tobacco and since switching to snuff there's been something missing. There are fantastic aromatic tobacco blends out there from dry leathery and spicy to damp barnyard but all miss one crucial thing... the smoke.
This snuff delivers on that tenfold, it's almost the smokers idea of what snuff must be like: smoking a high quality unfiltered cigarette through your nose in under a second.
Manageable burn to the nostril then hits you with a lasting smokey aroma to enjoy while the nicotine absorbs.
Best enjoyed via the boxcar method (an easy way to take fine snuffs consistently without them hitting your throat) and in large amounts less frequently, wish I discovered this one when I was trying to quit smoking
It is an excellent Indian snuff powder, if you are lucky with the batch. On some occasions the quality of the powder can be very poor.
Being a lover of plain tobacco snuffs almost exclusively, Six Photo MG madras and LA are both in my top of 10 all time, if not top 5, along with English toasts, American Scotch, TAXI, and a few German ones a can't spell off the top of my head. MG is a bit more smokey and stronger than its LA madras brother. Both have that buttery madras style loveliness , but MG has that latakia type smokiness that is reminiscent of smelling a fine cigar when in the nose. As well as a stronger nic hit. Like Uncle Squinty said, "if you are thinking about quitting smoking, this would be a good one" I agree, it helped me do just that. Which is also why i have such an affinity for it. An old fave. Writing this review after receiving 100gr tin. 5 stars all the way for me.
This one is my first Madras I tried. You can smell Latakia in it and a nice chocolate note. Awesome tobacco flavor with some butter in the background. Really good burn and satisfying in nicotine.
