Question about snuff

Is the difference between blends light and dark where the tobacco comes from. For example i really like the natural toast from toque mostly because it is a lighter tobacco i think. Or is that because it has been toasted? I also have always liked the seville i have and it is lighter in colour. Just not as moist. The other toques i have seem to be really dark. Why is this.

    @Tobaccoman the type of leaf used is one factor in determining the color of the snuff produced. Virginias, rustica, and orientals have a lighter color. Sun curing brightens the color of any leaf. Toasting lightens the color somewhat and transforms the flavor profile. Burley and fire-cured leaf are darker. As moisture is added to any tobacco flour, it gets darker.
    As far as some Toques being darker, I would guess that may be because burley leaf is used. I definitely detect that leaf in Toque Natural (which is darker).
