LD Salmiak is a licorice flavored snus brand manufactured by JTI Sweden AB. As a licorice fan who has previously tried and enjoyed several licorice flavored brands including Offroad Licorice and Jakobsson’s Licorice, I was excited to give LD Salmiak a try. Salmiak is an original portion snus which contains 8mg of nicotine per portion, and 24 portions per can. The portions each contain approximately 0.87 grams of snus.
Once I opened my can of Salmiak, I immediately noticed a strong aroma of natural licorice, and not much else. Upon placing a portion in my mouth, I immediately noticed a strong licorice taste, coupled with a hint of salt. Throughout my experience, I didn’t notice much of a tobacco taste at all, and after about twenty five minutes the licorice flavor became increasingly salty. I really enjoyed this licorice taste, as I found that it reminded me quite a bit of natural licorice without any sugar added. The licorice flavor was much stronger than Jakobsson’s Licorice which I liked, and it had larger portion sizes than Offroad Licorice which gave me a much better nicotine buzz while at the same time a better flavor profile.
The portions were of average quality and were slightly moist, but not overly so. On average, I was able to keep portions in for about fourty five minutes before I found the taste became too salty and bitter for me. However, drip was minimal during the entire time. Being an original portion snus, I felt a nicotine buzz come on rather quick, and it was quite pleasant.
Overall, LD Salmiak is a great licorice flavored offering in the LD snus lineup. I really enjoyed the natural taste of black licorice, and the taste was the perfect balance of licorice and salt for me. I highly recommend LD Salmiak to fans of licorice, as well as for those who are looking to try something different in their daily rotation.
