A classic variety of dipping tobacco, Copenhagen Fine Cut Snuff is a very finely ground dipping tobacco. With 4.98-7mg of nicotine per gram of dip, Copenhagen Fine Cut packs quite a punch!
When I initially opened my can of Copenhagen Fine Cut, the first thing that I noticed was the aroma of sweet tobacco. The cut was extremely fine, and it reminded me of some varieties of loose snus. After taking a pinch of about one and a half grams, I placed the dip in my lower lip and waited for the flavor to become apparent. Fine cut is a classic tobacco flavored dip, and has quite a sweet tobacco taste. After about ten minutes I felt a strong nicotine buzz, and it was very pleasant. After about thirty minutes, the sweet tobacco taste became increasingly saltier, until I noticed a taste which consisted only of salt and tobacco. I left my dip in for fourty five minutes, and at that point it had become quite dry.
Unlike Skoal Straight, Copenhagen Fine Cut produced significantly less amounts of drip, and I found myself spitting a lot less. The downside though was that because of the fine cut, it can be difficult to keep the dip in without losing bits and pieces. Even as an experienced dipper, I still found some small pieces got stuck in between my teeth.
In summary, Copenhagen Fine Cut is a great dip for those who love the taste of tobacco. However it can be at times difficult to use because of how finely ground it is. I recommend Copenhagen Fine Cut to more experienced dippers who are looking for a great tobacco flavor as well as a good nicotine kick.
