A strong, dry, finely milled snuff made by blending three types of Virginia leaf and a little Punjabi Rustica with unique and rare Perique tobacco. Named after the small area of land near New Orleans where it is exclusively grown, St.James Parish Blend is a pungent, fruity, high nicotine snuff.NB: As with any natural tobacco product, artisan nasal snuff can be susceptible to mould if it is not stored correctly. All of our snuffs are heat treated before packing to ensure an indefinite shelf-life whilst in the original, unopened containers. Our snuffs are traditionally made without chemical preservatives and we recommend that once opened the snuffs should be kept in the tightly closed brand container and stored in a refrigerator. Only decant using a clean, dry implement.
"The tin note is bitter chocolate with tobacco. When taken, the tobacco comes to the front, and the chocolate note recedes -- it's not like some of the other chocolates where it's like you snorted Nestle's Quik or something.
I'm not getting any specific tobacco type -- maybe some of you with deeper pipe palates will be able to pick out Virginia or Perique -- it's too subtle for me. I don't find it particularly fruity except for maybe a tiny hint of chili -- if you've ever made Alton Brown's hot chocolate recipe, this is very close, if he included tobacco...
Supposedly the Punjabi Rustica gives it a nicotine kick, but I'm not getting anything like that after doing it three times in the last 15 minutes while I write this."
"This stuff is amazing. Worth every penny. Yeah, it is expensive, but after one sniff, I am a huge fan. It is a little more coarse than I am used to (Wilsons and McChrystals). You can definitely smell the Perique. One of the best snuffs I own.
Needless to say, I will be buying more of the Sir Walter Scott's blends!"
"To my mind, this is an excellent snuff. Well balanced with an flavorful mix of fruit and a piquant note from the Big Easy. Exquisite snuff that packs a punch."
"outstanding snuff best quality tobacco and no annoying scents that destroy the tobacco flavour. For the first time since I use tobacco in my life that I experience really having the plant in my nose. Warm, earthy, awakening snuff. Keep on making it Sir Walter Scott!"
