Dark, smokey, course, a delicious intermezzo from the SP snuffs. A bit rich for all day use. Recommended.

Great tobacco! See the 1860 review. The addition of orange sounds fantastic but was found to be elusive. It may be that I had some old stock. The snuff still had some very interesting nuances. I will be revisiting.

Very perfumed! Something like Musk with a nice warm Rose base. Extra fine. Somewhat fluffy. Very exotic with a feeling of the far east.

Very fine and fluffy. Strong tobacco flavor. Cigar like aroma. A must try for any American style snuff lover.

Date liqueur, Cuban style tobacco with a medium grind. This stuff is world class. A little rough on the nose and very subtle in flavor make it a challenging snuff in that you will tend to snuff it till it hurts. A highly recommended experience of subliminal addiction.

A beautiful simple fragrance. Fine and fluffy. Neroli, orange flower oil, is something special. A familiar scent for most makes a nice perfumed snuff for dreamland adventuring.

Nice and soft texture. Great Menthol/Eucalyptus combo. Sweet but not fruity. This is my standard for mentholated. I plan to never be out of stock with this snuff! Highly recommended.

Mildly flavored Bergamot. Somewhat coarse but soft. Very easy to take. Not oily or sticky at all so keeping clean is easy. A good snuff to share for an introduction. Not as strong as expected but I feel that may be a good thing. Not a highly coveted snuff for me.

Fantastic flavor. A must try. Very tasty. One of the most edible snuffs that I have tried. Makes a good aperitif. I'm exited to discover blend combinations that would harmonize this most distinctive note.

Very light and delicious. Fine, dry, toasty stuff. Smells of old leather. Very earthy in a light way. This snuff is a classic.

Strong menthol hit. Wonderful apricot undertones. Sweet but not too sweet. Soft and moist. Great containers. Widely available so there is no excuse not to try. I love the fruity menthol's for use out doors.

A very good snuff. Licorice not Anise. The menthol overpowers the subtle licorice though. I wish it had a more eucalyptus menthol like Ozona President, but I may not know better. If you like the other semi-sweet Mentholatum's from Poschl then do try.

Love the eucalyptus! The bottom note is also delicious though I cannot put my finger on it. Great containers. I love snuffing off the back of my hand with Poschl. This snuff awakened me to the differences between the eucalyptus, camphor, and menthol crystal flavors. If you don't like mentholated snuffs it may just be a specific type that you disagree with. So do your homework people. You may find treasure!

Another strong menthol for me. I detect a baritone cherry flavor in it but there doesn't seem to be a base note. With it's one of a kind dispenser system this is a fun product. Good for use outdoors. I snuff directly from the container...a little much. I do like it but don't as much as love it. So there!
Review for Swedish Match Magnet Peach
08-10-2008 06:22PMGrind: CoarseMoisture: DryNicotine: Medium
Good peach flavor and nice menthol background but the texture was strange with some type of crystals of a larger dimension that were larger than the grind. Someone said flavor crystals, I thought menthal crystals. Whatever they were I took a mortar to them to smooth the snuff out. I'm still not sure it was the right thing to do.
Review for Swedish Match Taxi Blue
08-10-2008 06:22PMGrind: CoarseMoisture: MoistNicotine: High
I love Taxi Blue! It's not just a flavor but an aroma that it sports. Being course, it's easy to snuff, but the tobacco is so soft. When my nose begins to run it runs dark. My wife once asked me if I had a nosebleed. The blow is nice and clean and the aroma remains and is also enjoyed in the lungs. As far as nicotine goes I have decided that there is no need to turn to taxi Red for more. The higher nic of Taxi Red seem to interfere with the flavor factors so it's Taxi Blue for me. This is my morning regular and because I leave it at home I will go strait to it when I get back. I can't wait to try the Taxi Rock too. If it's base is similar to Taxi Blue then it's sure to be a winner!

FANTASTIC! Moist and juicy. very course. you can use your lungs to pull in the aromatic ammonia. I don't feel it's so necessary though because the Blue Taxi is strong enough and in my opinion more enjoyable. The higher nicotine content in Taxi Red seems to me just a distraction.

Well balanced. Very stimulating. Outstanding blending combination of flavors. I'll be using this for my cool weather snuff for the warming characteristics of the clove. I can't imagine a poorly made snuff ever coming out from the windmills at DeKraslingse.

Very strong sweet aniseed flavor. Not enough eucalyptus for my taste but this flavor combo is a good idea. Soft and fluffy it's easy to take and there is no need to avoid hitting the back of your throat because the flavor is great.

Strong camphor, not my favorite type of menthol. Medium grind, medium moist. Not sweet at all. Will use for medicinal purposes but MC's O&G is my go to choice.

Complex flavors of Rose, Lavender, and citrus. A little cloying in the nose but that's SP for me. Not called SP Best for nothing though. A very enjoyable snuff.

Nice and warm full bodied fragrance. Sandalwood base with fruity citrus notes. A little sticky in the nose though making it longer lasting. It looks like the recipe may have changed. The new description includes hints of menthol and cedar tones. Very creative snuff over here. Don't miss out!

Red Rapee! Dark red color, Nice and smooth grind. Exotic cardamom flavor. I don't know if there really is cardamom in it but the flavor is reminiscent. It may just be bergamot. This snuff goes well with a strong cup of coffee. I'll have to see how this stuff smokes in my hookah for the full Arabic experience. Highly recommended snuff!

Nice but the scent is too popular with soaps, perfumes, lotions, etc. I keep my floral snuffs in Oriental style bottles. A good addition to my collection but I don't think I will ever run out of the tiny stock I have.
