Coarse, dark brown, medium moist, easy to take. Tin note, or should I say box note, is something dark and sweet. In the nose, I get a bitter cocoa scent along with sweetish liquor notes. After the liquor smell fades away, the cocoa scent starts smelling like coffee. This new scent lasts in the nose for a decent amount of time. Great snuff, but it clumps together in the box, so you have to manually crush it before snuffing it. The throat drip is rather unpleasant as well, so try blowing your nose when it starts to feel the snuff will start dripping. Medium nicotine content.
