Ettan is a brand of snus which is proud to call itself one of Sweden’s oldest brands. Originally developed by Jacob Fredrik Ljunglöf in 1822, Ettan has proved to be one of the most popular brands of snus on the market today and is highly regarded for its great taste and superb quality. Currently manufactured by Swedish Match. every portion of Ettan contains 8mg of nicotine per gram of snus. Every portion of Ettan contains .9 grams of snus, with 8mg of nicotine per portion. There are 24 portions per can.
Upon placing a portion of Ettan in my mouth, I noticed an extremely smooth smokey tobacco flavor with a slight hint of nut (I feel that the snus even smells a bit like some type of nut, but I can’t quite determine which kind). I also detected a slight hint of chocolate, which really compliments the tobacco flavor and produces an interesting yet smooth taste. While I used my can of Ettan portion, I didn’t get any burning sensation with like I get with some other brands of snus such as Skruf Stark.
I found the portion material to be quite comfortable, and the portions produced little drip. As a result, I was able to keep this snus in my mouth for about forty five minutes before I began to experience any drip. After about ten minutes, I began to feel a moderate nicotine buzz, and it was quite pleasant.
Overall, Ettan Portion is a terrific snus for the price. It has a smokey tobacco flavor, with a mixture of chocolate and nut undertones. I sometimes add Ettan portion to my snus rotation, especially since I’m a big fan of a traditional tobacco taste when I use snus. Mich like the General series, makes Ettan is a great everday snus, and I highly recommend those who are just getting started with snus to give it a try. I also suggest giving Ettan a try after a large meal, as I find it to be quite nice!
