Babaton Plain Blue 15g
Similar to the South African Taxi Snuff,with a very good nicotine content, very moist and coarsely ground. Let the can breathe before use by removing the lid for a few hours. The tobacco taste is very authentic and has a subtle coconut note, similar to FUBAR Grunt. It has an aroma that takes a bit of getting used to but the flavor is quite satisfying.
"Just to be clear, this is like a chewing tobacco and fully without any flavour or "notes" of anything. That said, the nicotine is very strong, the grind is thick and dark and earthy, and it can be mixed with other snuffs to achieve a palatable combination. Reminds me of being on safari in Africa, falling into a steaming pile of elephant dung nostrils first and being stung in the face by some psychoactive insect that produces delirium for a few minutes. Not that it is a bad thing. Also, the snuff dries out very quickly after opening the container. Mine must have been extra fresh, because in addition to the elephant dung, it seemed to contain elephant urine as well, although airing it a bit took care of that."
"Not all south african snuff are the same, This creation from VAN ERKOMS co. Is just a wonder- course and moist and has a creamy appeal to it,sits nice in the nose and gives off the pleasant scent of coconut once brewing in the nose. The nicotine is present but not over whelming, so do shovel it in ,buy the way you will need a shovel not so easy to pinch just need to put the hoover on the shag carpet setting. Nothing brutal here just good tobacco flavor similar to grunt. Easy to use for the novice and satisfy to the veteran snuffer alike, As with all heavy snuffs have some tissues or a handkerchief on stand by." (This review by Basement Shaman - RIP)
"This is by far one of my most beloved snuffs! Thick and rich to the pallet, very dense and very satisfactory. The Babaton Plain Blue was well worth the money spent, its Earthy tones blended in with its deep potent aroma caused immediate relaxation and its curiously flavourful aftertaste lingered lovingly in my pallet. I recommend this snuff to more serious users who are just looking to unwind and relax."
"This snuff is a less ornery version of Taxi or NTSU, and has a lovely coconut like scent with its plain tobacco flavor. It doesn't seem to contain as much nicotine as its aforementioned African cousins, but it still gets the job done.
Furthermore, it is a good bargain--the snuff is packed into the tiny container, and one box lasts a long time and holds-up under heavy use. Good Stuff."
