    Red Crest

    All the offerings in the Crest line are good (Blue, Yellow, and Red) the Red is the darkest in color and smell. The grind and moisture are about like that of a Wilsons SP (so not a dry fine toast by any means). The profile is that of a natural tobacco (as are all the offerings in the Crest line).

    Of all the Crests my favorite is the Blue. It has a very distinct hay smell that is great. Yellow is sort of in between the Blue and Red but unless I have the Blue and the Yellow back to back I can’t really remember the difference between the two…..except that the Yellow has more of a traditional natural tobacco scent whereas the Blue has got that whole hey thing going on.

    But back to the Red: The Red is probably named “Red” because the tobacco is a brownish burgundy color. I’ve heard some say it is smoky……..but whoever said that has probably never had a toast or a Scotch snuff. I get no smoke here at all.

    Instead, the scent is that of a tack room: old leather saddles and reins hanging on the wall, warn wood floors, a bit of hay lingering in the background, and the humidity of a summer morning working its way through the whole mix. It is very very nice. If Blue is sun dried hay in a bright field, then Red is the damp and musty stable just down the lane.

    Excellent description, Snusdog. For some reason I can take monster-sized pinches of Red Crest, I really like it a lot. I am going to have to try the Blue Crest soon. I have Blue Crest Scented which has a floral scent to it. It's not too bad but I don't think I'll be re-ordering it any time soon.

      Crullers that is a good point that I forgot to mention...........Red, Blue, and Yellow Crest come in both a Plain (natural) or SP/Floral variety......... so know which one you are getting when you order to make sure you get what you are expecting.

      All of mine are from the Plain/Natural side of the family
