“futuristic in some way”
A few years back I worked on a ferry out on the seas, and usually the ocean was quite still but sometimes it would get really stormy. I got seasick from time to time and always got the recommendation to eat a bit of liquorice when that happened. Although I really don’t like the taste of it I had to eat it to calm my sea-sickness down. So why am I telling you this?
Because the Skruf Slim Nordic White has a scent and taste of liquorice, and I’m really surprised that I liked it so much although I don’t like that type of taste (candy, fennel etc). Also, it’s a slim portion (which is my fave snus-size) so I liked it a lot. The pouches felt softer to the touch than I’m used to so it was a nice contrast from the regular ones I use. The nicotine kicks in after about 10 minutes which is pretty normal, and as this is a white portion you can have it in for a longer period of time (depending on what you’re doing).
I also have to tell you about the box! I love boxes of snus that gives me a special feeling, cause it makes you curios about what’s inside. This box is light grey and kind of modern, almost futuristic in some way. I think the Skruf-team is on to something here…
To sum up, my mind is liquorice-blown!

Skruf Slim Nordic White Portion
Introduced in early 2012 and made by Skruf AB in Sweden, Skruf Slim Nordic White portion is classified as a Long, White type portion. White type means that the portions do not go thru the final step in the manufacturing process that adds a bit more moisture to each of them and Long type means that the portions are a little longer and thinner than a regular portion making the snus sit more discreetly in the lip. While White type portions tend to be a bit dryer than Original type portions, Skruf uses a soft, teabag type material with their portions which makes them comfortable in the lip for as long as the flavor lasts, which is for about 2 hours. Each can of Skruf Slim Nordic White portion contains 24, .7 gram portions with each having approximately 8 mg of Nicotine. Skruf Stark White’s can is made from gray plastic with a clear plastic label and yes, there is a used portion compartment in the lid of the can but, enough about the can, let’s talk about the flavor! Skruf Slim Nordic White is a pretty unique snus flavor for Skruf in the fact that it’s Licorice flavored but not as intensely flavored as other Licorice flavored snus on the market. What we taste is a lightly sweet and salty, Black Licorice flavor, which is a traditional Swedish flavor, in the front with subtle hints of peat and leather that come from the quality tobaccos used by Skruf. Overall, a traditionally flavored Licorice snus that’s not overpowering. We feel that Skruf Slim Nordic White would be a great snus for those looking to experience a true Scandinavian flavor in a lighter overall taste!
