Granit is a budget priced line from Fiedler & Lundgren. It’s one that has become incredibly popular for it’s lower price but quality taste. Today, we’re going to be reviewing Granit Original Portion! When it comes to the Granit line, this is how Northerner.com describes it: “Granit Snus is a Swedish Snus by the Swedish manufacturer Fiedler & Lundgren and was first launched back in the 18th century.” I honestly didn’t know Granit went back that far.
The flavor description for this snus says, “Granit Portion is a traditional snus crafted to deliver a rich experience with an explicit and clear taste of tobacco, bergamot and spices.” Each can weighs 19.8g and has 22 portions. The nicotine content is 9mg/g.
One thing I like about Granit is that now it comes with the FlexLid, like other Granit products. If you aren’t familiar with the FlexLid, this is a catch lid that actually grows and expand as you add more used portions to it. It’s pretty cool. Whereas most snus products are limited with how much snus you can put in the catch lid, Granit can hold more than average!
When you open the can, a citrusy smell comes through that seems to be a mix of bergamot with a touch of lemon. There’s also an earthy tobacco presence in the back, as well. The portions are moist, comfortable in the lip, and quickly release flavor! The flavor is very much the traditional citrus flavor of Swedish Snus. The tobacco flavor comes through pretty clearly, and is earthy and robust. The citrus flavor comes through pretty clearly, and is mostly bergamot but there is a hint of lemon. The flavor, on average, lasts about 45-55 minutes. The nicotine strength feels to be about the regular strength level.
Granit is a budget snus, but it still has a quality taste. It’s become incredibly popular over the past several years, and Granit Original Portion is my favorite of the bunch! If you like traditional snus flavors but want to save a few bucks, check this one out!
