Meet Ian

 

“True to the roots of snus, it was at sea”

Name: Ian
Age: 38
Nationality: British

Hobbies:
I’m currently renovating a cabin, so my hobbies are mainly carpentry, plumbing and plastering. When I had spare time, I played guitar and read non-fiction.

Favorite Snus:
I developed a soft spot for Jakobssons Autumn Snus last year. A nice hazy kick and sweet cinnamon flavour reminded me why autumn is my favourite season.

My first snus experience:
True to the roots of snus, it was at sea. I was crossing from Denmark to Sweden and spotted some interesting ‘cans’ in the onboard shop. I bought, I tried and then I bought more. Ettan White Portion, tusen takk!

Favorite Life Hack:
The only trick I regularly use is putting my phone into an empty cup to amplify the sound. The quality is still terrible, but it’s louder and makes me feel clever.

A quote that sums up my view on life:
Yesterday’s weirdness is tomorrow’s reason why.


Stay tuned for Ian’s first review!

Meet Matt

 

“Sleep when you’re dead”

Name: Matt

Age: 24
Nationality: Canadian

Hobbies:
Brewing beer is my favorite hobby that has evolved from a pastime to a career for me. I’m a co-founder of a microbrewery in Toronto called Pint Pursuits Brewing Co. I also love bikes of all sorts – downhill racing, trails, BMX…

Favorite Snus:
My go-to snus is General G.3 Extra Strong Slim White. Great feel, perfect strength, and no-nonsense flavor! A close second that I like to mix into the lineup is Göteborgs Rapé Lingon. So tasty!

My first snus experience:
My first experience with snus was during a round of disc-golf (throwing Frisbees into a metal net). I had never heard of it, and am now glad that it is catching on in Canada!

Favorite Life Hack:
Warm beer? Throw a wet paper towel around it, pop it in the freezer for 5 minutes, and voila, ice cold.

A quote that sums up my view on life:
Not sure who said this, but, “Sleep when you’re dead.” Too much to do and experience.

Matt’s first review will be published here soon!

Meet Martin

“A burning passion for videogames, barbering, music and of course, snus”

 

Name: Martin
Age: 23
Nationality: Swedish

Hobbies:
Right now: A burning passion for videogames, barbering, music and of course, snus. Currently involved with a “Arcade” group in Halmstad, Sweden, with the aim of bringing the kids, adolescents and the rest of the community together with their passion for video games. Now I’m digging into the art of writing and Roman Philosophy.

Favorite Snus:
Lundgrens Förbakad. Just the fact that it does not come in a bag, and actually preventing “Over­Runniness” is craftsmanship only wizards are capable of. And the taste Is really good, too.

My first snus experience:
My dad was a “snuser”. He would open the can of “Ettan” and let me and my big sister smell the snus. Somehow, in some way, we loved the smell of It. My actual first “Snus” happened when I turned 18 (age requirement for tobacco purchases in Sweden, follow the law and good things will happen to you!) and I bought my first can of Göteborgs Rapé. Got a little dizzy, though the sensation was on another level.

Favorite Life Hack:
Working with radio broadcasting, my portable recording device eats up batteries like no other. To keep myself from mistakenly using batteries that are dead and gone, dropping a battery on my desk (about 6inches) will indicate if their usable or not. If they give a small bounce, they’re good. If they bounce around like people in a nightclub, they’re dead or on the way out.

A quote that sums up my view on life:
Read what you want. Watch what you want. Play what you want. Think what you want. Say what you want. Liberty.

Stay tuned for Martin’s first review, which will be published here soon!
