The earthy flavour with the aniseed-like hint is both tasty and refreshing.
This was one of the first Toques that I tried, about five years ago. I liked the name because I live on a horse farm. Little did I know that coltsfoot is a herb with a long history in folk medicine. When I opened the tin, I got a whiff of something reminiscent of licorice. The tobacco was brown, and flecked with lighter colored bits. It was slightly coarse in grind, of medium moisture.
Upon taking a small pinch, a wonderful scent began to reveal itself. Licorice like, but not licorice at all. More woody, almost root-like, the scent is unlike any other snuff I have tried. Not an all day snuff for me, I reserve it for times when I am relaxing with a good book. In my opinion, this is a snuff everyone should try if they enjoy Toque's other varieties.
