I do like this snuff, plain old tobacco smell and a good nic hit. My favorite Madras is NB, but haven't been able to find it lately. I also buy NC Madras from Hookah1. I do find TAS to cause me to stuff up if I take too much. What I usually do is mix TAS, NC, and 5 Photos Himalaya, then add a few drops of Eucalyptus oil--a nice medicated snuff with a good nic hit, sort of approximates Hedges L260 (one of my favorites). So I do recommend this, have bought several kilos, will buy more.
