Black Line Breeze Ultra Strong Slim

BLACK LINE BLAST, ULTRA STRONG SLIM WHITE

“This snus is called Ultra Strong and trust me, they are not kidding!”

The Black Line snus box can be described in one simple word: elegancy. It’s all black and you can only see the name of the snus if you tilt the box. This is a box of snus that I can imagine bringing to a luxurious dinner in a big city at night, and just keep it on the table. I see myself wearing a black beautiful gown listening to classic music playing in the background, while sipping on a glass of champagne. Yes, THAT kind of luxury.

Opening the box I smell a soft scent of mint. It’s not too much, it’s just the right amount of mint (or as we swedes say: “lagom”). I’m not really fond of flavored snus but this is actually perfect.

Putting a snus under my lip I feel the nice sting and after about 3 minutes I feel my head spinning. This snus is called Ultra Strong and trust me, they are not kidding! This is the strongest snus I have ever tried and the nicotine kicks in so fast I can hardly keep it in for long.

I tried another pouch right after I had dinner and I did actually feel a difference. It’s like when you drink on an empty stomach, you get drunk pretty quickly. Same thing with this snus in some weird way. Take one after dinner and you’ll be fine. Take one on an empty stomach and you will feel like you’re on a rollercoaster.

Despite that, I really enjoy the Black Line Breeze Ultra Strong Slim. You can’t really feel the minty tone, so for you tobacco-lovers out there this snus is the perfect combination of refreshing taste and that classic tobacco you want.

This snus simple, elegant and just right.

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

Offroad Gold Selection Portion

“Offroad Gold Selection really is a golden selection”

Hey friends,

It’s time to rate this nice little fella, Offroad Gold Selection Portion.
I must say that I was really happy when I saw the can, cause it is a really fine can with nice golden details on a carbon black background. It really has a stylistically pure impact, almost as when you lay your eyes on a perfectly designed car – a pure satisfaction for the eye. So basicly, you get the feeling that it’s a snus for real snusers, at least I did!

The description from the producer of the snus, described it as a “classic tobacco taste with hints of bergamot.” Once I opened the can, a nice tobacco and citrus mixed aroma just spread through the room. So, my first impression of the snus was “Alright, the smell is perfect”.

So how about the taste?
One thing that did cross my mind, was that the bags was not as filled. So I nearly knew from the beginning that the bag was going to twist itself, once it start to run. The bags are moist, but not so you get smudgy on your fingers. So, I put one under the lip, and the tobacco smell sustained with a strong flavour. This, and a really, really nice citrus taste. And I’ll have to agree with the producer, it has a nice hint of bergamot. So, to say about the taste is that Offroad Gold Selection really is a golden selection.

The nicotine kicked in fast, just about 25 minutes. But it did only last for about an hour and half. But don’t get me wrong, it’s no shame in that, cause it’s a very pleasing hour and a half! And considering the fact that the bags are not so well packed, I must say that I was honestly surprised that it did last so long.

Offroad Gold Selection gets an  from me.

I would recommend this to everyone, cause it is a nice snus experience!

Until next time

Al Capone Green Extra

“beautiful fresh wintergreen smell”

Hi guys,

When you first open up the tub of Al Capone Green Extra you are greeted by a beautiful fresh smelling wintergreen smell with tobacco hints as well. The smell is nice and strong and lingers in your nostrils which is awesome.

When I first put one of the portions under my lip I could immediately taste that awesome wintergreen taste and boy did it last. Could still taste the wintergreen a good 45 minutes in however after about 30 minutes you start to get tobacco flavors as well. Once again I find that chew bags seem to drip less then normal snus portions! Anyone else found it to be like this??

This is one product that I will order again for sure.

Thunder NRG Portion

“this one is the Armageddon of snus”

Aloha friends!

So I recieved this really cool looking can, named Thunder NRG. And wow, just wow. It has this really cool design, with lightning bolts, and thick red coloured text. I got the same exited feeling as I had when I bought one of my favorite TV-games of all times (Ninja Gaiden 2, hehe). Anyhow, the design made me happy – just because it simply looks badass.

Once I opened the can, a strong smell of candy and energydrink spread in the air (I was sitting outside when I opened it. Even the people I was with, sitting a couple of meters from me asked where the smell came from. It has a really stingy aroma. Before I put a snus under my lip, I’m always inspecting the bags. Just so I can answer some simple questions in my head. Such as: how are the bags packed? Is it moist? Do I have to do any corrections on the bag before I put it under my lip?

I have to say, Thunder NRG Portion is a perfectly balanced snus in every aspect of it. It’s well packed, so any corrections aren’t necessary. And yes, it is moist. We are, what you call it in love – a perfect match.

Now it’s finally time to taste it. I put this perfectly packed bag under the lip and it strikes me how strong it I, and really how sweet it tastes. The producers really found that perfect combination of taste and smell. I can feel the energy drink-taste, and the sweetness of some candy. My cousin told me, when I began to snus that I will cross some really “dangerous” snus. With dangerous he means that it tastes extremely nice. If a snus can be dangerous, this one is the Armageddon of snus, seriously.

After I had it in for about 15 minutes, the nicotine hit me like a baseball bat in the face. Sorry for capslocking, but JESUS CHRIST, THIS ONE IS REALLY STRONG. But I said to myself to hang in there, cause believe me people, I wanted to take it out. But just to give it a properly correct review, and for the experience, I did. The strong level just remains, and remains, even after an hour and half. And then it slows down in the running. After about two hours, it doesn’t run so much.

The single handed best thing with this snus, is that it gives you the same feeling after each bag. I was almost exhausted after a snus of this. But I really enjoyed it. I think that this is one of my new favourite snus. But, this is under the category of extreme strong snus, so I would not recommend it to a person that’s not a longtime snuser, or a strong snuser.

I give this one and easy 

Until next time

Smålands Brukssnus Portion

“Imagine a deep misty forest, with flannelshirt-wearing woodsmen working”

Hey guys,

This snus is not for the weak or easily light-headed. For me, as a white portion user, the Småland Bruksnus is really strong.
The box design is classy and interesting. With the antlers and the old font I get intrigued to know what kind of snus it is inside. Imagine a deep misty forest, with flannelshirt-wearing woodsmen working. That is where it takes me, and that is the kind of people I believe this snus is made for. The taste is a bit whisky-like but also classic strong tobacco taste that you expect from a snus like this.
I must say I’m a bit surprised with how long I could have Småland Bruksnus under my lip, even though it’s not white portion. I guess it’s because they are a bit dryer than regular portion snus, so I could keep it in for almost an hour. I am also satisfied with the burning sensation I get under my lip, as a 5+ years user of snus I never expect that anymore. So for that – Smålands Brukssnus Portion earns an extra star!
With that said, the burning sensation makes the nicotine kick in a lot faster, about 5-10 min later. And that, my friends, is not for a silly light-headed white portion-girl like me.
