Almost black, coarse and very moist, this snuff is the most enjoyable snuff of it's kind that I know of. Perhaps my nose is jaded at the moment, but I don't pick up much sandalwood, cedar, violet or geranium. There is a faint woody, floral hint somewhere in there, but it is masked by a magnificent leathery, peaty, moist and rich tobacco flavour that makes this one stand out from the crowd.
Some nose burn, but the moistness makes it very easy to take in large quantities (without the unpleasant throat drip of many schmalzers). Nicotine is delivered slowly and evenly over a long period of time. Ideal with an Islay whisky late at night.
Santo Domingo is absolutely a fantastic product. It has a higher nicotine content than any other nasal snuff I’ve tried. It has no menthol whatsoever: instead it has a smokier flavor, and contains less perfume than the other Fribourg & Treyer products; certainly a more pronounced rich tobacco flavor.
Lovely smell, very pure tobacco with cedar and woody taste. I don't sense violet that much (which makes it more perfect to me).
After a little while, a burnt (in a good way) woody taste comes alive and it's just really cosy thereafter. Good moisture level.
Very easy to take. Tiny burn. I haven't tried with whisky, but I can really see this goes a long with a nice whisky like the description says :)
A wonderful shop with lovely snuff from all the way around the world
