Snuv Black Range is a perfectly balanced blend of Rustica and Virginia tobaccos. The color of the snuff is almost black. A fairly coarse grind along the lines of classic Bayern Prise German snuff, with a dash of paraffin oil which gives these snuffs their distinctive fluffy feel and also helps prevent the moisture from drying out.

Black Ice takes its cue from the world's most popular snuff, Gletscherprise by Poschl Tabak.

Hence, added to the tobacco base flour Black Ice is fairly highly mentholated with hints of several other oil essences, most notably aniseed.

For lovers of mentholated German style snuffs this is a must try. The taste notes of Black Ice are what you would expect from Gletscherprise, but a more pleasurable in the nose in our opinion. There is plenty nicotine delivered by the Rustica, mellowed by the Virginia tobacco and the oils which slow the absorption in the nose, but equally give it longevity. The menthol is plenty enough to clear the sinuses nicely and give you that lovely cooling effect without being over-done. There is no nasal drip to speak of when sniffed correctly.

In terms of flavor, being Snuv Black Ice, it is no surprise that the menthol kicks in first. Once that subsides you will start to notice subtle flavors emerge. The aniseed in this case is more of an enhancer to other flavors, much like many food preparations. The discerning among us will also be able to pick out the sweetness of the tobacco. That's the interaction between the Rustica and Virginia.

MUST enjoy aniseed to like this

I didn't realize that the anise in this is so strong. Other reviews say it just compliments the flavor but for me it's prominent. Anise isn't one of my favorite.. the snuff is great otherwise (fluffy moist, easy to take, great combo of tobaccos, great nic hit)

Best Mentol Snuff OTM

New to snuff, have tried around 35 different brands/ styles, and this is my go to everyday snuff. Course grind, medium moisture, heavy menthol, best nicotine hit so far.

A real Banger!

Another fantastic snuff from the Black line and one I could pinch all day!

Smooth Cooler!

I’m not new to snuff taking, and it takes a good snuff to get my attention enough to write a review. Snuv Black Ice is exactly that! Black, moist tobacco that pinches well, and stays in the nose. The menthols are there, but don’t hit hard. Rather, the small amount of anise mixes with the more potent menthol, and that’s what you notice first. After a few minutes, the scents relax a bit, and the tobacco becomes noticeable. The nicotine level is pleasantly high, and gives instant satisfaction. While I’ve only tried three Snuv products, and only in the Black range, I am impressed by the excellent base flour, which appears to be oiled. The menthols and other scents are tastefully done, and can stand toe to toe with any of the Bayern types from Poschl and Bernard. I recommend this to anyone who loves oiled German snuffs. It’s similar to Gletcherprise but not the same. In fact, it’s wee bit better, and I forgot to mention, the tins are also very good, seal well, and keep the snuff fresh!
