Produced by Fiedler & Lundgren, Lundgren’s Skane Vit Slim is a white portion snus made with organically grown Swedish tobacco. Lundgren’s Skane Vit Slim comes with 24 portions, each containing .8 grams of regular strength snus (8mg of nicotine per portion) for a total of 19.2g of snus per can.
Soon after opening my can of Skane Vit Slim, I began to notice a plethora of aromas present themselves. In the forefront, there was an a rich aroma of earthy tobacco, which was complimented by a slight floral aroma as well as hints of pine and a touch of berry in the background. As a white portion snus, it took a few minutes before the flavor began to develop, but within five minutes I began to taste an earthy tobacco with floral notes alongside it. Around the eight minute mark the floral taste began to diminish, and at this point I noticed a very subtle taste of pine as well as well as a bit of a tart berry. I’m not sure exactly what kind of berry, but it may have been ligonberry. Around the fifteen minute mark the tobacco taste became increasingly dominant, and it continued to be present until I removed my portions around the one hour mark.
The portion material was comfortable, and the slim format made portions fit discreetly in my upper lip while allowing for maximum flavor release. The portions themselves were moderately dry, and as a result it usually took around 3-5 minutes before I began to feel a pleasant nicotine buzz set in. Due to the dry nature of the portions, I experienced little drip until around the one hour mark. On a sidenote, the Skane Vit can comes with a “flexi-lid” which expands to fit used portions as needed (unlike most snus cans which have space for a limited number of used portions). I found this to be a neat addition for times where you’re away from a garbage disposal (such as driving) and plan to be using more than just a few portions.
As a whole, I enjoyed Skane Vit Slim quite a bit, and I can definitely see myself getting more to mix up my daily rotation from time to time. With a tasty flavor, Swedish grown tobacco, and comfortable slim portions, Skane Vit Slim makes for a great snus for the lover of tobacco dominant blends, and I find that the meadow flower and pine aromas make it pair quite well with a nice IPA beer in the evening!
