A Snuff Odyssey

Sir Walter Scott’s snuffs are different. Like the famous Scottish novelist, this fine border snuff is attempting to create a new genre. Expensive, it is a combination of Burley, Rustica and Bright Leaf Virginia tobaccos. It is dry, coarse and high in nicotine. While it combines such flavours as bitter orange, bergamot and wild celery, I would not qualify it as a SP. It has a unique flavour profile that stands on it own and tastes nothing like Earl Grey tea. Granular and light brown in colour, it looks like sawdust when opening the tin and smells like warm oatmeal mixed with cinnamon and sultanas…with a hint of triple sec thrown in for good measure. Upon uptake, its dryness coats the nostrils by bonding the snuff to the humidity of the mucus membrane. A sustained and lightly numbing burn announces…well…nothing. This is a little disconcerting, until, like the sun rising in the east, the snuff’s flavours progressively reveal themselves in a Nietzschean mix of tobacco, dates and Angostura orange bitters. Increasingly commanding attention, Moro Moro reminds me of Richard Strauss’ Also Spracht Zarathustra in that it progressively builds towards crescendo that is both intense and highly entertaining. To truly enjoy this snuff taking experience one requires patience, forethought and a little concentration. It is not a flash-in-the-pan or a passing fancy.

On the back of the tin, under the health warning, in a print too fine for my unassisted eyes to see, the following manufacturer’s instructions are written: “REFRIDERATE AND KEEP TIGHTLY CLOSED AFTER OPENING”. Sir Walter Scott fabricates artisanal snuff in which the ribs and stalks of the tobacco leaves have been removed. No preservatives are added and not all ingredients are torrefied. As such, tins must be refrigerated after opening. Not heeding the order may alter the flavour and negatively affect the snuff taking experience.

Wild Alaska
Not Seville at all

Most of the reviews for this are way off in my opinion. Way off. The added flavors, are not discernible as such. At all. The tobacco is the absolute star of this show. Front and center. The tobacco isn’t dark IMO either. Medium at best. Pontefract Priory is dark. Moro Moro smells and looks like light and medium mixed. I don’t know a lot about it, just seems like that’s how it would be classified as Moro Moro is very light next to Pont Priory.

The aroma out of the tin is strong hay. Not orange. Not florals or citrus. Tobacco. Hay. Upon taking a large pinch up each, the immediate aroma is strong hay. Tobacco. Typical of lighter tobaccos (as far as I know).

Don’t get me wrong. Here’s the rest of it. The snuff is absolutely masterfully done. I think what’s going on here is that Johnny is such a master at what he does, the result is such a powerful, aromatic snuff, it stands completely on a level all alone at the top as far as I can tell. Not the next level either. It’s several levels above anything else IMO. It is not a perfumed snuff. It is not aromatic in a way that you will smell what’s in the description. You will smell the tobacco. Because that was the intention it appears, and it is masterfully done. Strong aroma that doesn’t fade. Strong nicotine. Will cure a craving for a smoke I guarantee it. Will buy again.

Johnny’s snuffs are several cuts above. This one is no exception. Just don’t expect Seville. This ain’t that. Seville is a cheap hooker next to Moro Moro.

Not bad, like most of Sir Walter Scott's snuffs, but not outstanding.

Very moist and very smooth snuff. The citrus notes stand out the most, but it's not over powering. Despite the coarse and moist grind, it stays well in the nose.
This and the thrice brewed are my favorite SWS snuff's.
