Tre Ankare has been a popular snus for a long time now. It was first launched in 1977, as Swedish Match's first snus. In 1986 they also launched Tre Ankare mini. Tre Ankare's taste can best be described as a full-bodied tobacco flavor with hints of wood, herbs and smoke. The pouch is dry on the surface which means less dripping, while it is moist inside for a prolonged snus release.
