I’ve tried Phantom Blue (formerly Rothbrix Blue) before and enjoyed it quite a bit (as I find it has a nice herbal taste).
Manufactured by Swedish Match, 01 Original Portion is part of The Lab Series of snus. These brands of snus were designed from the ground up by Swedish Match in order to create a better snusing experience with comfortable portions and a no drip formula. I’ve wanted to try 01 Original portion for a while now, so I was excited when I received my can in the mail earlier this week. Each can of 01 Original has 24 portions of snus with 0.9 grams of snus per portion. The nicotine content is 8mg per portion of snus.
Once I opened my can of 01 Original, I was greeted with an aroma which was comprised mainly of bergamot and tobacco. Once I placed a portion into my mouth, I was greeted with a salty tobacco taste, which also had hints of bergamot. The bergamot flavor continued to develop for about twenty five minutes before it began to subside and the tobacco taste took over. The flavor itself reminded me a lot of a toned down version of General Onyx. The tobacco flavor stayed smooth and tasty, and after an hour I was still able to taste a little bit of flavor!
One thing I really enjoy about 01 Original is the slim portion design. 01 portions fit very comfortably in my mouth, and they are extremely discreet while still allowing me to enjoy the experience of a full size portion. I was also impressed at how long I could keep a portion in for without experiencing any drip. I finally took my portion out after an hour, and had yet to experience any drip whatsoever.
Overall, I recommend 01 Original to those who enjoy a tobacco dominant snus with a little bit of citrus. I love having 01 Original while drinking my morning coffee since its produces very little drip, and the tobacco tastes goes well with the coffee. I also strongly suggest this snus if you are looking for a discreet full size brand, as well as something which produces very little drip.
Formerly known as Gotlandssnus Green, Jakobsson’s Flader is a regular strength apple flavored snus manufactured by Gotlandssnus AB. Jakobsson’s Flader is marketed as a regular portion snus, and it contains 9mg of nicotine per one gram portion. Every can of Flader comes with 20 portions.
When I first opened my portion of Jakobsson’s Flader, I was surprised to be greeted with a pleasant smell which reminded me of biting into a fresh Granny Smith Apple. I also detected a slight floral aroma, and this aroma was very nice.
Once I placed a portion of Jakobsson’s Flader in, I could immediately taste a fresh (yet nuanced) green apple flavor that was very tasty. I also picked up a subtle hint of pear, which I felt produced a fresh and fruity taste alongside the green apple. Jakobsson’s Flader is manufactured with a form of tobacco known as Alida. Alida is a special type of tobacco grown only in Gotland, and is known for having a delicious taste. I really enjoy Alida tobacco, because I find it to be very mild tasting which helps to compliment the fruity flavors found in this brand of suns. My only complaint was that I find that the fruit flavor wears off rather quick, and I found it hard to taste anything but a mild tobacco flavor after about twenty five minutes. After the hour mark, I found the taste transitioned into a bitter one, and I soon took my portion out.
Jakobsson’s Flader portions come in the same style of other snus varieties manufactured by Gotland AB, and although the portions fit comfortably in my mouth they aren’t my favorite type of material. I had my portion in for approximately forty minutes, and during this time the snus did not drip at all.
Overall, Jakobsson’s Flader is a delicious tasting fruity snus, and should please anyone that enjoys a dominant fruit flavor in their snus. I like to add Flader to my daily rotation whenever I feel like mixing things up with a nice tasting fruit suns.

Manufactured by the tobacco giant Swedish Match, General Strong White is a strong dry portion snus with the flavor of classic General Snus. but with the advantage of having a stronger kick. Each portion of General Strong White contains 11mg of nicotine, making it a strong portion snus. There are 24 0.9 gram portions per can of General Strong White.
Upon opening a can of General Strong White, I noticed an aroma of tobacco, lemon, and bergamot. The smell was quite nice, and also had a slight smell of ammonia, which signified that it was fresh snus. Upon opening my can of General Strong White, I immediately recognized the classic General taste of bergamot and tobacco. It was quite tasty, and I received quite a strong nicotine kick which I enjoyed quite a bit. Once I had a portion in for about thirty minutes, the taste began to evolve into a mildly salty tobacco flavor, which I found pleasant until the fifty minute mark.
The General Strong White portions fit comfortably in my mouth, and the portions felt quite soft
compared so some other brands. Since this is a white portion, I found that I was able to keep a portion in for about forty-five minutes before it began to produce too much drip for my tastes. One thing that I really enjoyed was that General Strong White came in a star formation. Pioneered by Swedish Match, star formation snus creates wedges portions, which I feel fit quite comfortably in mouth mouth without having to reshape them. They also fit quite nicely in my can, so getting wedge formation snus is quite a treat.
Overall, General Strong White is a great snus for the tobacco lover. Since it is also a strong snus, I also recommend it to heavy smokers who are looking to quit smoking by using strong snus. General Strong White also pairs quite well with white wine, and also complements light lager beers. In addition, the star formation is quite nice, and is a great touch that Swedish Match has employed for a number of their snus brands.
