Manufactured by Swedish Match, 06 Extra Strong is an original portion snus and a member of the Lab Series produced by Swedish Match. Each can of 06 contains 21.6 grams of snus, and each portion has 0.9 grams of snus. In case you aren’t familiar with the Lab Series of snus,
In late 2008, Swedish Match put together a development team of researchers, designers and snus consumers. This team was given the objective to create the ‘perfect snus’ by merging the latest research, generations of experience, and the specific demands of modern snus consumers.
Upon opening my can of 06 Extra Strong, I immediately noticed a mild tobacco aroma, with hints of bergamot.

There was also a tad of bergamot present to compliment the tobacco taste, but after about 20 minutes it was hardly detectable. In comparison to 07, 06 has nearly the same flavor, except since it isn’t a white portion you begin to notice a taste profile develop much quicker.
The portions were the same as the rest of the Lab Series lineup, and they fit comfortably and discreetly in my mouth. It also produced very little drip, and I only began to notice a slight (and mild) drip about an hour in. Unlike Skruf Slim, 06 didn’t produce a bitter taste, and I attribute this to the mildness of the tobacco used in its production. The snus was fairly moist, and because of this I began to notice a nice and strong nicotine buzz come on fast and it lasted quite some time.

Like the rest of the Lab Series family, 06 portions fit comfortably and I feel that Swedish Match was able to achieve several of the goals they set in developing this snus. I can definitely
