Snuv Black Range is a perfectly balanced blend of Rustica and Virginia tobaccos.
The colour of the snuff is almost black. A fairly coarse grind along the lines of classic Bayern Prise German snuff, with a dash of paraffin oil which gives these snuffs their distinctive fluffy feel and also helps prevent the moisture from drying out.
Snuv Black Rose is a complex mix of rose flavours. If you are a rose lover then Black Rose will not disappoint. If you are not, then it will likely smell like your maiden aunt's bathroom right after she has liberally applied her favourite talc.
If you have never tried a rose snuff before then Black Rose is a great place to start.
In the tin, Black Rose has a fairly subtle fragrance. Indeed, you will likely discern more of the sweetness of the tobacco rather than any overpowering rose scent.
Once pinched it is a different story. There is a nice nicotine sting. Like all snuffs in the Snuv Black Range, it is not overpowering , mellowed as it is by the Virginia tobacco and the oils, but it still gets your attention.
The attar of rose punches in fast and there is no doubt at all that you now have a Black Rose up your schnozzle. The Black Rose subsides after about 10 minutes and retreats into the background.
This allows the Rustica and Virginia tobaccos to take center stage for their performance. Supported by a troupe of background aromas, musk right behind the tobacco duo, and cast of herbs and spices all playing their little part to make it a night to remember.
Robust, confident, limber and sweet, and they dance in the nose like the true maestros that they are. You are undeniably in the presence of excellence.
If you could you'd toss a rose (a Black Rose, naturally) on stage at the end of their wonderful act.Please hit the Write a Review button below and let us know what you think. This really helps fellow enthusiasts choose.
