“a tobacco out for your grandfather’s heart”
It is comforting to know that even with the explosive development of new flavors and technologies within snus manufacturing that some still pay attention to the more traditional flavors that a snus can bring to its user. Swedish Match’s Grov Stark Portion Snus is a prime example of this: a next-generation “strong” portion snus that still calls back to its roots by providing an unaltered tobacco flavor. While many snus users, especially of younger generations, marvel at how extreme the newest raspberry flavored snus can be or how impressively a seasonal snus can remind you of holidays like Christmas, there is a certain comfort and pleasure to be had by allowing older, simpler flavors from bygone eras to unfold.
Swedish Match’s Grov Stark portion snus is a tobacco out for your grandfather’s heart. This snus is clearly designed to be “traditional,” at least in the sense that it forgoes fancy flavoring and the technological advances in snus packaging of the past decade, but with a significant nicotine kick. Grov Stark is a high-nicotine content snus with a rich and complex tobacco flavor. In this sense, it is something of an oddity. It has no obvious flavor additives, yet possesses the enhanced nicotine content.
Grov Stark’s flavor is a delightful, rich tobacco. While some users may find it plain, those that are willing to give this natural, earthy flavored snus will be delighted. At first, the flavor of the snus is unassuming. Given time, the rich tobacco of the snus will reveal its complexities and present a multitude of flavor profiles much like a fine wine or scotch would. Personally, I pick up a bitter, chocolate flavor and the slightest hint of pepper.
This snus has a solid nicotine kick. You can feel it quickly, and the nicotine stays for a reliable 20 minutes. It is certainly a strong snus, however the nicotine is not overwhelming.
As with most Swedish Match products, Grov Stark Portion Snus is a product of exceptional quality. I find it odd that a snus with such a traditional tobacco flavor would come in a high nicotine variety, as that seems to cater to two very different populations of snus users. In that sense, it is a snus that is a bit out of place and I am not sure how big the “I like traditional flavors that unfold like a fine whiskey’s but I also need extra stimulants” market is.
Overall, I give this fine snus a
