A dry, lightly toasted, finely milled blend of Turkish Prilep leaf tobacco and beautiful, fragrant Basma from the tobacco fields of the Xanthi district in north western Greece.
Named after the inlet of the Bosphorus River in Turkey, which forms the worlds largest natural harbour and during the Middle Ages, enabled the city of Constantinople, the modern Istanbul, to become the largest and wealthiest in Europe.NB: As with any natural tobacco product, artisan nasal snuff can be susceptible to mould if it is not stored correctly. All of our snuffs are heat treated before packing to ensure an indefinite shelf-life whilst in the original, unopened containers. Our snuffs are traditionally made without chemical preservatives and we recommend that once opened the snuffs should be kept in the tightly closed brand container and stored in a refrigerator. Only decant using a clean, dry implement.
Medium to fine grind, fairly dry sand colour snuff. Nose in the tin is of fine tobacco and cereal.
Turkish tobacco is my absolute favourite in a pipe and this packs it in lovely, fragrant almost toasty waves.
This is a silky smooth snuff to take with a steady nicotine release. A very good beginner snuff and will also appeal to the more seasoned snuffers as the quality is first class.
If you like orient tobacco this is the one for you. Nice and complex spicy taste of orient tobacco. Sws has created another masterpiece with this one.
