Hello Everybody
I am interested in trying American dry snuffs and was curious as to your opinions on Tube Rose?
Thanks for your comments.

    Snuff Reviews: Tube Rose

    I think its not bad, not over the top sweet as many of the sweet scotches are. Not as strong as I prefer though.
  • Not one of my favorites, but certainly worth trying. If I had to recommend a sweet scotch I would suggest Lorillard's sweet, followed closely by Navy, Railroad Mills or Three Thistles.

  • Thanks a lot. How is Dental Sweet?

    Thank you this is a great site and the first good one i've found that's a compilation of reviews and not just a selling website with scant reviews. Thanks!

    I enjoy Tube Rose Sweet. It has a caramel after taste to it that I haven't encountered yet in the other few sweet scothces I've tried. Its incredibly dry though and tends to chap my nose if I use it too often. This is one of the few scotches I will also put in my lip on occasion too.

    Tube Rose is, I think, the best American sweet. Like all of the Conwood sweets, it is not overdone. Tube Rose is very balanced in its flavorings. Compare it to Swisher's Tops Sweet, which is a similar concept, but Tops crosses the line with its sugar/caramel overkill. Overall I feel that Conwood makes the best and most subtle sweets (Tube Rose, Garrett Sweet and Mild, Peach and Dental Sweet). I'm increasingly fond of the Conwood Peach as well.

    I do wish that Conwood would switch to the plastic tins that Swisher and U.S Smokeless use. The cardboard toilet paper tube housing does indeed make this already dry snuff even drier.

    Tube Rose is definitely not a rose snuff. It smells like Earl Grey to me. Pretty good for a sweet scotch but I don't like sweet scotches generally.

    This is one of the few dry snuffs I prefer in the mouth. It's actually pretty yummy.

    I'm in the UK, and my friend brought me back some Tube Rose when she came back from a holiday over in America. Definitely not rose scented in any way, it reminds me of WoS Irish High Toast No.22; dry and fine (possibly finer than IHT No.22), but it also has (as said above) a caramel sweetness in the background. Once you get the hang of not sniffing it straight down your throat it's really nice, even the drip is pleasant.

    Tube Rose is my favourite sweet Scotch, its not sickly sweet like most sweet scotches. Oh and its tuberose flavoured not rose flavoured.

    I'm fairly indifferent to Conwood in general, but Tube Rose is a standout from the others I've tried. Dental Sweet is pretty standard fare, possibly a bit sweeter than Garett sweet but otherwise not different from it.

    I had to look up "Tuberose" scent, since I too thought the snuff name must refer to rose scent in a tube, and here is the description of "Tuberose" on a perfumery site (fragrantica.com):
    No note in perfumery is more surprisingly carnal, creamier or contradicting than that of tuberose. The multi-petalled flower is a mix of flower shop freshness and velvety opulence. Which is why it is the perennial polarizing flower note having as many ardent fans as passionate detractors. The Victorians must have been among the latter: they forbade young girls of inhaling the scent of tuberose in the fear they might have a spontaneous orgasm! Roja Dove is right when he says that tuberose is really loose, the "harlot of perfumery".
    Assuming that the Victorians were right, I now need to douse myself in tuberose essential oil and stand very close to women - - hello, ladies!

    @Geraldo you now know why they named that snuff after me.

    @as_noseum you might not feel that way when you realize it only works on Victorian woman, and I don't get to Austrila ever.
  • Tube Rose is very good . It's not scented like overseas snuff is , with a name like that . I enjoy it because , imo , it's sweet and it has a touch of smoky . The burn is very mild compared to a good number of American snuffs and the nicotine is high but not way out there . Basically a milder American , but not as mild as Society , which has a wonderful sweet long linger to it . Dental Sweet is a bit stronger and a bit smokier but not in large leaps , in small steps . If you have them locally , get both
