And now, for something completely different! Today, I’m going to be reviewing Smokey Mountain Tobacco Free Classic! This is a tobacco free, nicotine free long cut product! “Wait a minute, what’s the point of this?” you may be asking. Well, there are a few people that want to quit snus (or dip), and miss the feeling of a pinch in their lip. Products like this are a great alternative for those who choose to go that route.
“Okay, so what’s in this stuff?” you may also be asking. According to the Northerner.com description, “Smokey Mountain Snuff is made with hand-selected corn silk and kudzu root. The manufacturer believes that these expensive herbs provide the best base for tobacco-free snuff. Smokey Mountain Snuff also contains a proprietary blend of ingredients and flavorings in order to produce a rich, smooth taste. It’s spitless!” The flavor of this product is described as a “classic or natural flavored tobacco-free snuff. Smokey Mountain Classic has a very floral and traditional flavor, though sweeter than the normal. This is a loose cut product that consists of small strands of herbs.” The total can weight is 28.35 grams.
The aroma of this stuff is really interesting – it kinda smells like smoky tobacco, but it isn’t actually tobacco. There seems to almost be a hint of wood to it, as well. The material itself (because I don’t know what else to call it since it isn’t tobacco) is a lot like long cut snus or long cut dip. You can’t bake it, you basically just have to take a pinch and throw it in your lip. I’m not too experienced with this, so it’s a mess at first. The material is interesting; I find it to be moist, and it quickly releases flavor, but it doesn’t feel like anything I’ve ever had before. The flavor is a lot like the aroma. It tastes like tobacco! But….it isn’t tobacco. It has a smoky quality to it, along with a faint hint of wood in the background. It also has this dark quality to it which is hard to describe. It has a light touch of sweetness, but definitely not too much, and it certainly isn’t overwhelming by any means. The flavor is bold, robust, smoky, and well rounded! The taste lasts a good amount of time – on average up to about 45-55 minutes.
If you like the taste of tobacco but want to quit tobacco, you may like Smokey Mountain Tobacco Free Classic. I found the flavor to be quite enjoyable! Easily my favorite of all the Smokey Mountain products I’ve tried so far.
