Jakobsson’s Special Salmiak – Henrik Jakobsson’s Edition

“it’s simply elegance”

Hi guys!

This review will be about Jakobsson’s Special Salmiak (Ammonium)

And this can is one of Jakobsson’s selected flavors, that goes no one by, by the look of the can. It has Henrik Jakobssons signature on it, and it is not like the other cans that Jakobssons have made – it’s simply elegance. You can see with your eyes that this is one of their masterpieces. And I must say that it’s a real pleasure just to watch it.

The flavor of this one is ammonium. A personal opinion is that in most cases, that never works out as a good plan – and may have a connection to that I’m not a very huge fan of it. But hey, let’s not judge a book by its cover (really not in this case, cause the can is beautiful!)

Once I cracked the can, a really strong smell of ammonium just exploded out of it. In Sweden we have an herbal medicine that is called Kan Jang, and it smells on point like it. So the relate to it is not far away. The pouches are well packed, so no bigger adjustment is needed. So I put a pouch in, and yepp – it taste just like it smells. But you get used to it after just a few minutes. And it lays under the lip just perfect, it’s almost as it was crafted after my snusing pit. The nicotine kicks in after about 35 minutes, and it has a really nice mix of tobacco and a hint of ammonium. And that fits me absolutely! It’s not that strong though, but it’s a very pleasing flow on it.
You can have one in for easy an hour after it begins to run. After that the effect slows down.

So, I’m not recommending this for a beginner snuser, cause even if I don’t think that is that strong, it sure is a lot stronger than many other options with the same flavor.

Overall, with the fact that I’m not a huge fan of ammonium, I’m giving this one a 6/10. But I’m absolute sure that it’s an easy  for the one that prefers it.

Until next time!

U Sample no15 Strong White Slim

 

“I fell in love with this one”

Hi guys!

This review will be about a snus that I fell in love with after just one pouch. It’s the U Sample no15, Licorice Mint – Strong White Slim.
Yeah, I know, it’s a really long name for a logotype, but that’s where the design professionals does their magic, and just comes up with a really simple but yet clean design. Hat’s off for you guys, you nailed it!

So, let me tell you why I fell in love with this one.

First of all, as a mentioned earlier, it has a clean and simple design – no fancy extraordinary stuffs. Just… Perfect! And the second part, licorice and mint. This is an absolute perfect combination, just because that one flavor does not hit out the other flavor. Mint in a snus is familiar to toothpaste, which everyone knows is just fresh – and the licorice part just makes it a little more toothpaste and more of a snus. Yeah, complicated explaining here, and sure it makes no sense what so ever, but you get it. They just mix up really fantastic together.

So, once I opened the can, the smell of mint zips out, and it’s a joy to smell. (This, and I know that every pouch that has even the smallest amount of mint in it will burn a little extra) I put a pouch in, and the mint flavor hangs in there, and almost directly it starts to burn on the gum. I somehow like this, how weird it may sound, hehe.
Once the nicotine kicks in, after about 45 minutes, you can feel the hints of licorice in, and the mint puts in an extra gear. After about another 15-20 minutes the mint slows down, and the licorice takes over completely. This is the downside of it, from my point of view. Cause I’m not a big fan of licorice itself. But it’s bearable, cause the mint stays in the background all the time.
And yes, U Sample actually always delivers when they type Strong on their can. Their snus is always strong, and a little extra. That’s another gold star from me!

I would recommend this snus to the person that likes strong snus. Mainly cause it actually is a pretty strong pouch you put under your lip.

So, U Sample – you get a  from me, and a huge Thank you!

 

Until next time,

Robin
