General Loose Extra Strong Swedish Snus
Our General Ekstra Sterk, Loose Review
Introduced in 2009 and made by Swedish Match in Göteborg, Sweden, General Ekstra Sterk loose is classified as a loose (lös in Swedish) type snus with a medium grind which means that the tobacco is not as coarse as long cut tobacco but not ground into a powder like texture like you would find in a fine grind. It’s right in the middle and easy to mold either with a tool or by hand. The prilla made by a tool outlasts the one made by hand but both last for as long as 2 hours with little prilla degradation. Each can of General Ekstra Sterk loose contains 45 grams of snus with a Nicotine content of 13 mg per gram. General Ekstra Sterk’s can is unique in the fact that Swedish match is one of the few snus manufacturers that still prefers the paperboard bottom cans with a gold colored plastic lid. The lid makes a pretty tight seal with the bottom and doesn’t accidently pop off in your pocket. The can also keeps the snus pretty fresh due to the thin layer of paraffin wax that lines the bottom of the can but, you’re here for the flavor, not the can so, let’s take a look! The same trademark flavors of tobacco, salt and lemon, that are found in General loose, are also in General Ekstra Sterk but a little more pronounced. The main flavors here are of the hand selected tobaccos from around the world and a smoky element that’s unique to General Ekstra Sterk loose. This smoky flavor gives the snus a subtle sweetness that mixes well with the tobacco and lemon. The black pepper flavor is only a background taste here as well as the salt. There is a slight burn in the back of the throat but it’s from the high amount of Nicotine and is found in all snus with Nicotine levels over 14 mg. when compared to its portion sibling, General Ekstra Sterk loose has the same flavors but a bit more mellow. This is due to a lower salt content in the loose. While this is what we taste, we want to know what you think! So, give General Ekstra Sterk a try with your next order and write a review of your own to let us know what you taste. We look forward to reading it!
