Black Line Slim White Portion Blast – Ultra Strong

“It’s just like you imagine the love of your life to be: elegant and strong”

As I have mentioned earlier the Black Line snus boxes are so freaking graceful. And under that elegant outside lies a strong inside.
It’s just like you imagine the love of your life to be: elegant and strong. In some way my mind goes to the story of the Beauty and the Beast, but in reverse. A charming prince that becomes a beast is what this snus is all about.

White slim portion is the best in my opinion, as the drip is minimal. I’m used to white snus being a bit more soft to the touch than this is, but I also think that softer snus means more drip. I guess that’s what they’re trying to avoid.

I could keep a pouch of the The Black Line Slim White Portion Blast in for about 45 minutes before I felt it becoming too moist. Also, the nicotine is really, really, really high. After 5 minutes my head starts to spin but if you can conquer that feeling you will be awarded. When your head stops spinning that calm feeling of the nicotine embraces you. So don’t give up! You will get what you came for!

This snus has a mild taste of mint that you can barely feel, but it helps the freshness under your lip. It’s not that heavy tobacco-taste that a regular snus has, neither is it too minty. I would say this is the perfect combination of the two worlds that is tobacco and flavour.

Rating:

Don’t be fooled by the graceful appearance of this box. When you unleash it the beast will come to show.

Stay alert,

Skruf Fresh Super White #2

Skruf Fresh Super White #2

“the most wonderful sharp, fresh and natural smelling peppermint”

Today I am going to be reviewing Skruf fresh super white #2 for you.

So as you may have guessed from the name this is a white portion Snus, is high we are certainly seeing a lot more of nowadays than ever before.

The can is just like any other Skruf Snus can which is quit a school mole design but it is a very smart looking can overall.

Once you open the can up you are greeted by the most wonderful sharp, fresh and natural smelling peppermint fragrance which really does smell just great.

Once you place a portion under your lip you are instantly met by the peppermint flavor which really does not disappoint it tastes just as good as it smells. It’s a very gentle but good tasting peppermint flavor. The flavor it’s self lasts for an impressive amount of time, still tasting great over an hour in, with little to no drip noticeable. It’s a very comfy portion which fits snugly behind your lip.

The #2 which I tried here for you all is the original strength one and even though it may taste great it didn’t quite do it for me because of the lack of strength however they do make a stronger version of this Snus and my next review for you will be on that one to really compare the two.

Overall this has a great flavor it really does but lacks in the nicotine strength area for me personally so I’m going to give it a,

General Wintergreen Snus

General Wintergreen

“I do love the way that General pack their Snus in that swirled patten”

Hey guys today I have a review on General wintergreen Snus for you.

First all I want to say that I personally love wintergreen flavors I know there not everyone’s thing but they are pretty popular and tasty haha.

So the can that holds this Snus is nothing exceptional it’s just like every other can by General Snus but I do like the fact that if you peel the top label off we’re it says to peel here you are left with a very smart looking can with a general logo on.

Once you open up the can you are met with a lovely wintergreen smell reminiscent of Skoal Wintergreen or wintergreen lifesavers, which I love. I mentioned the lifesavers as there’s a slight sweetness to the smell. And I do love the way that General pack their Snus in that swirled patten inside the can opposed to just dumping it all in there.

The portions are very slim and soft and fit very comfortably under the lip. Once under your lip they deliver a fantastic wintergreen flavor again very reminiscent of Skoal Wintergreen but not quite as sweet as Skoal. It’s a very well balanced flavor with a slight saltiness to it but not a lot. The flavor in these portions really holds up well and you can happily keep them in for well over an hour without losing any flavor. There isn’t really a noticeable drip at all until about an hour in which is great.

This particular wintergreen Snus is by far one of my favorites. And if you like Skoal you will love this one by General. Which has been specifically designed to appeal to the American palette. With all that said even if you’ve never been a big fan of wintergreen Snus I think this one may surprise you and is worth a go.

This gets a firm

Jakobsson’s Special Persika / Peach

Jakobsson's Special Persika Northerner

“If you are a fan of peaches and Snus I would strongly recommend getting a full roll of this Snus” 

Hey guys I tried the Jakobsson’s Persika Snus recently and here’s what I thought!

On opening the can you are greeted by a wonderful natural smelling aroma of peaches and it’s glorious.

The portions themselves are nice and moist and a pretty average size, so comfy under the lip. The taste though is simply sublime it’s just amazing, you get a nice fresh tasting peach flavor with a good level of sweetness, you don’t really get a tobacco flavor at all, which I would have liked but I can’t complain because of how amazing the Snus tasted. The flavor is long lasting, with almost an hour of beautiful peach flavor being obviously tasted. Like with the strong cola Snus, the drip doesn’t appear until about 45-50 minutes.The nicotine content is relatively average and not as high as what I typically go for.

If you are a fan of peaches and Snus I would strongly recommend getting a full roll of this Snus.

A little tip, I really enjoyed this Snus with a nice glass of bourbon as the flavors mix together really well.

This Snus is a solid  and I will be ordering more for sure.

Makla Red

“it is a fantastic little product and well worth trying at least once”

So I’ve tried something different today guys, Makla which in Arabic means food is a Tobacco product which hails from North Africa. However the one I tried is produced in Belgium by Sifaco’s. I tried Makla Red and here’s what I thought!

My first thoughts were on how small the tin is. On opening the tin you are greeted by a smell of tobacco and ammonia such is the case with American Dip and loose Snus. However this is much more like American dip.

I started by only placing a small amount under my lip and after only a few minutes I got a fantastic nicotine hit, which was very pleasant. The taste was as I expected, which was tobacco forward but it did taste like really good quality tobacco and had that nice old fashioned taste to it, after a few minutes I started to notice a spice like flavor coming through as well. I was really impressed actually.

However it does make you produce a lot of saliva and you do need to spit when using it so I would recommend just using a smallish amount and placing it in your bottom lip as to not spit the product it’s self out. I also recommend buying a mud jug or the likes if you intend to use this product regularly.

Overall it is a fantastic little product and well worth trying at least once. It personally won’t make it into my rotation as I do prefer American dip to this. And then obviously Swedish Snus portions.

I can see myself ordering another can one day when I fancy something different.

WoW Summer Honey Explosion White Dry

“The smell when you open the snus can is just beautiful”

I was intrigued and very interested by Wow summer honey white dry explosion when I first heard about it because of the fact that it is a nice strong Snus with a whopping 4.3% nicotine level but it’s not mint flavor, and that’s a rarity.

The smell when you open the can is just beautiful, it’s a strong fresh citrusy smell with floral notes after a little while. And it tastes just as good as it smells, lovely citrus flavors with a beautiful hint of honey. The white portions are nice and soft and super comfy under the lip, I started to notice a good buzz after about 6 minutes or so but no noticeable drip until about 35 minutes and it really held its flavor for a good hour which is great.

I much prefer this to the standard Wow sunny honey Snus.

Overall if you like honey and strong Snus you will love this!

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

Knox Slim Original White

“The pouches are perfectly packed”

Hey friends!

So, I’m about to review Knox Slim Original White, but would just like to take a moment to uplift the Slim-pouches. I think it’s absolutely amazing, to be honest.

So, with that said, it’s now time for the review!
The can is a nice traditional round can, with a clean layout. And that’s just the thing! It is not an advanced layout, just because the snus is not an advanced snus. Haha, talk about sounding prejudiced! I’m no stranger to Knox, quite the opposite – I’m a big fan of the brand. So to test this Slim edition has been a real pleasure.

So I cracked the can, and yepp – it smells just like how a Knox pouch should smell – Tobacco. Lovely if you ask me. The pouches are perfectly packed – they have really used every space available in the bag. And well, not that I’m a fan of it, it’s dry (mostly because that it is White portion). But trust me on this one, it aint a problem! Once you put it under your lip, you feel how comfortable the pouch is. You don’t have to do any adjustments (I would seriously be impressed if you were able to make a bigger adjustment on it, hehe) It starts to run after about 55 minutes – a little too long time if you ask me. It runs nice – not too much, but not to less. It’s really good balanced.

The thing I missed about this, is that it’s not that strong that an Knox uses to be. But hey, don’t take it as an complain – only the fact that it’s a slim portion makes it a winner nine time out of ten! You can have it in for another hour, then it starts to lose the nicotine.

Last, but not least,

Let’s talk about recommendations. Knox Slim Original White is a snus for anyone. It’s perfect for the person that only wants a pouch sometime now and then – but it absolutely works as a daily basis snus. So, this will be the snus I recommend if someone wants to begin snusing – but doesn’t want a too strong one. Overall, Knox made it to the finishingline – with bravura.

I’m giving it a

Until next time,
Stay well!

Grov Portion

“the holy grail of snus”

I’m not a morning person. In fact, I am the absolute opposite. I need a big cup of black coffee,

That’s my morning ritual. You can postpone the breakfast, if you just have some coffee (if you are a coffee person so to say). This, and a snus of course. In the morning it’s not really that important what kind of snus it is, just as long as you have something under the lip. The missing piece. But there is something special with this one.

Grov Portion – the holy grail of snus, in my own opinion. Of all the snus that I have tried among the years, I’ve managed to always return to Grov Portion. For me, it’s the piece that closes the circle. It’s the snus that makes every morning a little bit better.

It has this wonderful sort of wooden taste, and a lovely strong tobacco flavour.

And I would actually go so far, that I will say it tastes nostalgic. Grov Portion is the snus that your father, uncle, grandpa and so on. was snusing. At least in my case. It has that childhood smell. The same smell that newly done pancakes smells like. Well… not as pancakes, but you get the picture.

Speaking of time!

Once you put the snus in you will not have to wait more than just 25 minutes before the nicotine kicks in, and the flavour remains even after 1hour – and is still going strong. This is one of the main reasons I snus Grov. You can have the can longer, and don’t need to rush down to the corner shop 5 minutes before closing, just because you only have 4 left.

If you don’t snus that often, it not a big deal. The bags are soggy, and remains so even after a week (that is actually the longest time I’ve had a can.) Even though I am convinced that you can have one for longer.

I think that it is a snus for a person that has been snusing original portion. Considering the fact that it has a strong tobacco flavour, and that the nicotine kicks in pretty fast.

So overall, as earlier mentioned, Grov Portion is my holy grail of snus,

I would absolutely give it a
