Fribourgh & Treyer Dr J R Justice - Large Tin
The blend F&T created was 50% Bordeaux and 50% Morlaix. It contains an astounding number of tobaccos including; Zimbabwe Flue Cured Stem, Dark Fired, Sun Cured Leaf, and Flue Cured Stem. Its consistency is corse but moist and the initial scent is reminiscent of lilac and a hint of lye. The aroma comes from violets, geranium bourbon, lemon may blossom, Tonquin essence, and musk. Though there is one more ingredient it is a well kept secret.
The snuff is very dark and has a very pleasant aroma. While the snuff isn't ground so small, it still remains silky to touch and feels very moist. The snuff is easy to take, and tends to stick, which is good for taking, but also tends to clog ones nose.
