General One (Original Portion) is a snus Swedish Match originally created in collaboration with MMA fighter and snuser Alexander ”The Mauler” Gustafsson. The can used to have his signature, but it appears that it no longer carries that. The One series is a “modern premium” series, much like XRANGE. It’s a cheaper version of main-line Swedish Match products, but with the same great taste. And, a pretty cool looking can, in my opinion!
The flavor description for this one says, “General One has a dark and spicy tobacco taste with notes of bergamot and hints of tea, hay and leather. This snus has a full sized pouch that is moist on the surface for a quick and strong flavor release.” Each can has 20 portions and a nicotine strength of 14mg/g.
When you open the can, the aroma of spicy, smoky tobacco comes through pretty clearly. It seems to be a darker taste than regular General Snus. The citrus flavor is present, and accompanies the tobacco taste quite nicely. The portions are plump, moist, and feel great in the lip! The flavor is very much the regular General taste, but I seem to notice more tobacco in the flavor profile. The tobacco taste is dark, bold, and spicy. There’s a hint of smoke to it, as well. The citrus flavor comes through in a clear, lightly tart way, and works great with the taste of tobacco. The nicotine kick feels to be around the strong level, and the flavor seems to last about 40-50 minutes on average.
I really enjoyed this one. General One (Original Portion) is a cheaper product than regular General Original Portion, but I notice more tobacco taste in this one, which is quite enjoyable! It’s also cheaper, so you can’t beat that!
