Despite using several types of nasal snuff over the years from time to time, I noticed that I have yet to review any nasal snuff here on the Northerner Blog! Since I like to write reviews for all kinds of products available on our online store and not just snus, I decided that now would be a great time to write a nasal snuff review, starting with Jaxons Dukes Brown! For those of you new to nasal snuff, I’ve previously written a handy guide explaining what it is and how to use it.
Produced by Jaxon’s Snuff, Dukes Brown is a finely ground light brown SP style nasal snuff. Although it is no longer certain what SP originally stood for, the term has now come to define a category of nasal snuff which is flavored with hints of citrus (usually bergamot) and floral aromas. Every can of Jaxons Dukes Brown comes with 20g (0.70oz) of finely ground nasal snuff.
Soon after opening my can of Dukes Brown, the first thing I looked at was the grind and consistency of the snuff. Medium brown in color, Dukes Brown quite dry and is finely ground which makes it easy to take a pinch. Next, I spent a moment taking in the aroma. At the forefront, I noticed a slight, dried tobacco aroma, and it was complimented by a floral scent. In the background I noticed hints of citrus, but it was quite subtle.
Immediately after taking a medium sized pinch, I began to notice a floral tobacco aroma, and the citrus aroma was only slightly present. Unlike other forms of smokeless tobacco, nasal snuff tends to have a faster acting (but much shorter) nicotine buzz, and it is weaker in comparison. I felt a slight nicotine buzz almost immediately after taking my pinch, and it lasted for about three minutes before starting to fade. After blowing my nose, I was left with a pleasant aroma of
As a whole, I must say that I definitely enjoyed the experience of Jaxons Dukes Brown. Its been a while since I’ve had a nasal snuff, and Dukes Brown has a great aroma and nice nicotine kick. I recommend Dukes Brown to those who enjoy SP style snuffs, as well as those who are curious about trying nasal snuff and enjoy tobaccos with a floral element to them.
