A new offering from Jakobsson’s this summer, Jakobsson’s Dynamite Extra Strong is billed as being a full-bodied blend with clear tones of bergamot. As a fan of tobacco flavored snus brands, I was excited to give Dynamite Extra Strong a go. Every can of Dynamite comes with 20 grams of strong snus per can.
Upon opening my can of Jakobsson’s Dynamite, I picked up notes of herbal tobacco, spices, and a hint of bergamot. I enjoyed the aroma quite a bit, especially the slight spicyness in the tobacco. As far as the taste goes, it began as a slightly spicy taste, and then evolved into an herbal one with a tad of bergamot. I found the flavor to be quite complex and highly enjoyable. Dynamite also has a slight burning sensation like Skruf Original. The bergamot helped to add a twist to the mild tobacco flavor present, and lasted for around ten minutes before it began to subside. Afterwards the herbal tobacco flavor continued to develop before beginning to subside around the fifty minute mark.
The portion material was of regular quality, and the portions didn’t cause any problems for me. I began to feel a strong nicotine rush set in within two minutes (comparable to Thunder Ultra Strong), lasting for a good amount of time before beginning to taper off. I experienced very little drip with Dynamite, and drip only started around the fifty five minute mark after the main tobacco flavor became less herbal and saltier.
Overall, Jakobsson’s Dynamite Extra Strong is a tasty and strong tobacco dominant snus brand. I recommend it if you enjoy the taste of General Classic but are looking for something stronger and with a slightly different taste. I found Dynamite Extra Strong paired quite well with dark beers such as stouts and Belgian ales. For its high nicotine content and great tobacco dominant taste, I can definitely see myself adding Jakobsson’s Dynamite to my daily rotation in the near future!
