Have been brought up on these kinds of snuffs. The first snuff tobacco I tried was Umbrella snuff. An easy to take dark Madras. Then I was introduced to TAS. It was ridiculously addictive! TAS has shut shop now. The only Madras type snuff I have access to is DS which is somewhat close to the TAS but lacks the slightly finer grind and the nicotine punch. The burn is good, like TAS.
