Produced by Swedish Match, the Goteborg’s snus brand has been in existence for quite some time now (since 1919!). Goteborg’s Rape Lime is a relatively new member in the Goteborg’s Rape line of snus, and I was quite excited to see what is would be like. The last version of this brand was added in 2006 (Goteborg’s Rape No. 2), so you know that Swedish Match wouldn’t release a snus under this banner unless they know it will be good! Goteborg’s Rape Lime contains 8mg of nicotine per one gram portion of snus, classifying it as a regular strength snus. There are 24 portions per can, and each portion contains .9 grams of snus.
Once I opened my can of Goteborg’s Rape Lime, I was greeted with a floral aroma as well as a mild smell of lime, which reminded me quite a bit of lime juice. As a fan of citrus fruits, this aroma was very pleasant and I was excited to give it a try. Upon placing a portion in my mouth, I was soon greeted with a very pleasant flavor of lime and a floral taste reminiscent of Goteborg’s Rape. Eventually, this taste developed into a slightly floral tobacco taste which was quite smooth. The flavor impressed me, and I soon found myself reaching for my can of Lime in a number of different situations.
Being a white portion snus, Goteborg’s Rape Lime was quite dry, and thus produced very little drip for the duration that I had my portion in for. In my experience, I was able to leave portions in for at least fourty five minutes before I began to experience any drip. The portion material was also quite comfortable, and they sat in my lip without irritating it at all.
One thing that was quite neat about my can of Goteborg’s Rape Lime was that it was arranged in a star formation. This is a neat addition by Swedish Match, and I find that star formation snus tends to be better formed than regular portion snus.
Overally, Goteborg’s Rape Lime is a terrific snus for citrus fans. With its strong, clear, taste, Lime excells as an after dinner snus, and I can definitely see myself adding Rape Lime to my daily rotation of snus in the near future!
