“Never smelled a snus that was so clean smelling”
When I received this to review, the first image that came to mind when I saw “The Lab” were a bunch of mad scientists donning long white lab coats, laughing maniacally as they invented bizarre new creations to unleash onto the world from their lair, complete with Tesla coils and bubbling beakers emitting smoke.
Luckily, the people who work for The Lab, while possibly mad scientists, are nothing like that. What they put out is an insanely high quality product as I found out.
Once again the green label threw this American mind into the color-coding schemes of American products, green of course being mint. Boy was I wrong, and in a good way.
The Lab’s cans, not just this but all of them, are quite interesting and the large number on it makes you wonder which experiment you’re getting. “Gee, I have 07. What have those mad geniuses produced?”
Opening the can, I’m greeted with a very intriguing scent. This stuff is FRESH. As in it smells like it came straight off the plant fresh. Slightly herbal, very subtle, and for some reason it made my mind wander to a hot summer day right after I finished cutting the grass. It’s not a cut grass scent, though. But I’ve never smelled a snus that was so clean smelling. I knew I was in for something different.
The flavor is a natural tobacco flavor, there’s no traditional bergamot flavoring. This is straight tobacco flavor. And it’s amazing. It’s an incredibly mild flavor, not at all what I was expecting from a pure tobacco product, which I’ve had before in other snuses. Those were a stronger flavor, almost reminding me in a way of cigarettes, which I’m no fan of. This…this was clean. This was smooth, not sweet, but bordering on it just enough to keep you wondering if there was a flavor added to it. This is incredible.
This is an Extra Strong portion, so be prepared for a kick. I actually got a little light headed after 5 minutes, and being a little crazy myself, I found this only added to the experience. This is a seriously potent snus and you want to go easy if you’ve never had a strong portion before. The portions are slim, they fit well in your lip and are quite soft and very comfortable to keep in. Dripping is quite minimal and what comes out isn’t bitter to an excessive degree. Although unlike other products I did find I have to remove a portion after an hour or so.
Mad scientists or not, The folks at The Lab know their craft and they know it exceedingly well based on this product. I can see myself getting this in the future just because it was so unexpected and so pleasant on all the senses. To be honest, I can’t find a single fault in this product, and I am giving it a
If you haven’t tried a natural tobacco snus, do yourself a favor and try this. I believe you’ll be won over by it.
