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

Epok Laktris Slim Strong

“you are instantly greeted by the best smelling lakrits from any snus I have ever had before”

Hey guys today I’m going to be reviewing Epok Laktris Slim Strong.

I was excited for this one because I love lakrits and I do really like epok snus, so I couldn’t wait to try it.

On receiving it and opening the can you are instantly greeted by the best smelling lakrits from any snus I have ever had before. And it’s a lakrits smell through and through can’t really smell much else in the snus.

On putting one under my lip I was greeted by the comfortable fit of a Epok snus portion and a strong and pleasant lakrits flavor straight away that lasted for a good 30 minutes before I started to get a bit of a tobacco taste coming through with the flavor carrying on for a little longer. No overly noticeable dripping for the best part of an hour which is great.

This snus in particular is stronger then then the normal Epok snus, which only made it better!

If you’ve never tried Epok snus before you should because it’s really good. However when you first open the cans you will see something different! The portions are white.

I’m going to give this a,

Because I love lakrits so much. Try it you won’t be disappointed.

Taboca Extra Strong portion

“It tastes pure tobacco”

So, I received a new package of snus the other day. The box was red and didn’t really look like a snus box. It actually looked like one of those recycled plastic boxes, but the box was pretty clean. Completley red with only the “Taboca” brand on it in white and the green leaf hanging on the top.

When opening the box there isn’t an overwelming smell, you can only feel hints of tobacco hitting your nose. The packaging of the small bags are not in order, it’s basically just a mess of bags in the box. I took one bag up and flattened it out, put it up under the lip and then I could feel the taste mixing around in the mouth… It tastes pure tobacco. There is a difference between this brand and the others, most of the other brands have different tastes mixxed with the tobacco, this one however… It tastes pure tobacco and I love it!

Another notable thing is that this is actually a strong portion which you can feel. The strength of the snus is not in the taste but you can feel the nicotine hit you up.

I enjoyed it for as long as it lasted, there is no difference in the time lapse between this snus and the other brands, basically the same.

Taboca Extra Strong Portion goes great with coffee and as you all know, I love my snus and coffee.

Jakobsson’s – Äpple & Skogsbär

“It smells exactly like apple candy”

Hello friends!

I’m about to review the Jakobsson’s – Äpple och Skogsbär (translation: Apple and Berries)

Jakobsson’s have, as I’ve said before, the gift to make every can representative and recognition for the brand. You can look at every can they’ve ever made, and be like “Yepp, that’s a Jakobsson’s”. And I like that! That means that they have made the effort for making every can unique, but still representative for what they make. I admire that.

The can…
The background of the can is orange, but not as an typical orange. It’s more like an autumn-colored orange. So you will for sure have the right feeling for a walk in the woods! Everything else is more common to Jakobsson’s other cans – The golden brand logo, with the white cursive flavor stamp under it. It’s like to watch a painting you really enjoy!

So once I opened the can, a sweet smell breezed out of it. It smells exactly like apple candy. Not the green sour apples (Think they are called Granny Smith?), but the sweet apples that you have in a pie. Hehe, anyhow! The bags are pretty moist, and are in a need of adjustments before you put it under your lip. Once I’ve put a pouch under the lip, I feel a sweet taste spread in the mouth – yes, the candy taste. This far in, it seriously don’t feels like I have a pouch under the lip. But, as from earlier experiences, I know this isn’t the lasting feeling. So, after about 30 minutes the nicotine kicks in. It’s not too strong, and not too sweet. It has a nice balance.

You can easy have it in for an hour and a half, and it is a pretty comfortable pouch to have in. You don’t need to adjust it after a while, as you may have to do with several other pouches.

I recommend this snus for anyone. But if you’re not a fan of flavored snus, don’t try it – cause of all the snus I’ve tried, this easy makes it to the top 3 of flavored.

Overall, I’m giving this a 

Until next time,
Robin

Skoal Mint Snus

“I am impressed with the menthol’s bite”

Skoal Mint snus by the U.S. Smokless Tobacco Company is an American entry into the snus market. It is not the first American attempt at snus; there have been several mediocre attempts already. This is the first American snus that I have seen resemble the quality in production and taste of European products. The Snus itself comes in large, white-style pouches and is similar in style to a “maxi” brand.

The snus is a heavily mentholated, rather sweet mint, and, honestly, does not taste half bad. It is not a subtle taste; the menthol hits the lip quickly and powerfully.  All in all, however, the mint flavoring does not distinguish itself compared to other brands. It is sweet, almost cloyingly so. I am more impressed with the menthol’s bite, but menthol is a personal favorite of mine. This is not my favorite snus, and I most likely would not seek it out, however, it certainly works in a pinch and is altogether agreeable.

Nicotine wise, this is a comparatively weak snus. It gets the job done, but it won’t impress you. The nicotine asserts itself mildly about a minute after using the snus and is gone just as quickly in about fifteen minutes.

All in all, it isn’t a bad snus, but you have much better options for a mint snus.

I give this snus a

Kapten Melon Extra Stark

“I enjoy a fat bag of Kapten”

Alright, so I’ve tried alot of different variations of snus in my life. They’ve been flavored and non-flavored.

Let’s try KAPTEN Melon Extra Stark!

The box is a regular snus box and if you’ve had Kapten before you’ll know that they have a specific sigil and the text KAPTEN written all over the box.
“Kapten” means Captain in Swedish and to be honest, hitting up a snus with Melon flavour didn’t seem like their type of thing. I opened the package and the smell of Melon was actually non existant. The only smell coming from that box was the regular Kapten smell. Once opened, I picked up on of the bags, basically they have these fat bags compared to the rest of the snus industry that in general creates regular, thin sized bags. I don’t know about you but I enjoy a fat bag of snus. You might have to snus for a couple of years before enjoying that type of snus under your lips.

The taste doesn’t hit you straight away, it takes a while for the snus to get soaked and the flavors to be mixed up in your mouth, it actually took longer than I expected. After a while I could feel a small hint of melon, but mostly the other snus flavors overtook that part of the job. It’s actually a bit difficult to mix your own flavors with a totally new flavor.

Kapten has great snus usually but I have to say that I’m a bit dissappointed with this one.
