I recently acquired a can of Jakobsson’s Licorice Portion, and after nearly finishing my can I feel ready to write a review about it. As a fan of a Jakobsson’s Melon, I was really looking forward to trying this brand. I’ve previously reviewed Offroad Licorice Mini and I absolutely loved the taste, so I was hoping to experience the same thing with Jakobsson’s Licorice. Licorice is rated as an average strength snus containing 9mg of nicotine per gram. Each can contains 20 one gram portions of snus.
When I opened my can of Jakonsson’s Licorice, I noticed a mild licorice aroma, much milder than that of Offroad Licorice. Upon putting a portion in my mouth, I noticed that much like the aroma, the flavor of Jakobsson’s Licorice was very subdued. The taste consisted primarily of salt and licorice, but I found it quite hard to taste the licorice. I also noticed a very slight floral taste that I felt complemented the licorice without being too overpowering. Despite being very mild, I found the licorice flavor to be very enjoyable and found myself beginning to enjoy the mildness, especially after a big meal. After about twenty five minutes, all the licorice flavor was gone, and it gave way to a taste of mild tobacco. Unlike some other brands of snus that I’ve tried, Jakobsson’s Licorice had no burning sensation while I had the portion in.
The portions were made of standard portion material, and they fit nicely in my mouth. I enjoyed the one gram size format of the portions as well, as I prefer this size to the newer smaller portions that many companies have been releasing. The portions were slightly moist, and I was able to leave portion in for about fourty-five minutes before I began to experience any drip.
Overall, I find Jakobsson’s Licorice to be a great licorice flavored snus, but a little bit too mild for my tastes. I feel that if Jakobsson’s added just a bit more licorice flavor to the brand, then I would probably add this snus to my daily rotation. I recommend Jakobsson’s Licorice to those who enjoy the flavor of licorice, as well as people who are looking for a mild flavored snus to complement a beverage or to have after a meal.
