I hope everyone had a nice New Years, and here at Northerner we’re looking forward to another year filled with great new snus releases. Already, Swedish Match has welcomed 2014 by announcing a new range of General products, dubbed “General Variation”. The Variation lineup consists of two snuses (Smokey Oak Portion and Rustic Blend White), each geared towards the premium market.
Swedish Match describes Variation as
“…a new snus series with focus on sophisticated taste characters that truly signify indulgence. Based on Johan A Boman’s original General recipe from 1866 the products bring new exciting taste characters to the world of snus, while still being true to our heritage and cultural foundation. A tasteful evolution of the original Swedish snus. General Variation – a series of tasteful varieties from the original Swedish snus.“
Rustic Blend White has a full-bodied tobacco taste with hints of citrus, dried herbs, and pepper. Smokey Oak on the other hand is said to have hints of pipe tobacco, oak, and campfires, with a subtle twist of bergamot. Both flavors appear to be quite complex and interestingly paired. As a fan of General Onyx’s rich taste and comfortable portion design, I’m eagerly waiting the opportunity to review these two new flavors of General once they become available. Expect to see a both snuses available for purchase during the last week of January!
