As everyone knows, I am still relatively new to snuff and the forums here. I started off with Toque products. Most of them are pretty easy to take. So as I browsed the forums early during the day, and late at night I discovered that it doesn't just stop at Toque. I was recommended trying toasts, and what better way to begin than with F&T HDT?
Let me just start off by saying WOW. The grind is VERY fine. Much finer than I am used to. I won't lie, I was nervous before taking my first pinch. But what struck me the most was the packaging. It's elegant. The tin/jar itself is a nice break from the normal WoS tin. I absolutely loathe them. So I open it up, and take a whiff. Very dry, leathery scent to it. Nervousness increased.
Too bad I was nervous, because this snuff is on point. It wasn't difficult to take at all. Maybe my technique is just refined well-enough to sample drier, finer snuffs. The leathery notes I was getting are still present. It's almost as if I walked into a hardware store like Lowe's. Not a bad thing. And the nicotine, wow. It's there. It crept up on me, and smacked me. With an aluminum bat. I love it. 5/5
Edit: Upon more pinches, I now detect a smoky scent. Reminds me of a burnt-out charcoal grill. Childhood memories.
