Bernard Steifeprise, 'stiff pinch', is a blonde tobacco with menthol and peppermint flavor. The menthol accentuates the peppermint flavoring with subtlety and finesse.
CUSTOMER REVIEW: The peppermint and menthol, together, are delightful in their own right. But the quality of the base tobacco is also utterly superb, warmly smokey and comforting. For me, after the peppermint and menthol settle, the base tobacco smells uncannily similar to a long-gone uncle's pipe tobacco jar. Five stars. Also the tap box is an excellent size for pockets and the sailing ship is outrageously cool. It lends a very "Master & Commander" vibe to the product.
Trading with this company is painless. Good communications with first class service. The product was as expected at a reasonable price.
The strong eucalyptus refreshes and keeps you awake in the evening. I have to dose carefully, because even slightly too much will definitely lead to sneezing. A finer grind than most of the Pöschls, but not to fine.
I always keep one of those, but it lasts longer. 4/5 stars.
