In the snus world, there isn’t a snus as underrated as LD. It seems LD doesn’t hardly ever get discussed, which is a travesty! Especially, given how great it tastes and the price it’s available for. LD Stark Original is the newest release in the LD line, and it’s rapidly becoming a favorite here! The LD line is a product line from Nordic Snus AB (formerly JTI), and has been around for quite a while. After Nordic Snus took over, they really pushed forward with LD, and gave it a slick new design, as well!
The flavor description for this one says, “LD Original Stark Strong Portion has a soft taste of tobacco, with a hint of citrus and bergamot. This snus has a regular sized pouch.” It comes in an 18 gram can with 20 portions, and a nicotine strength clocking in at 14mg/g!
LD is very much a traditional snus experience. When you open the can, a light, gentle smell of citrus greets you along with hints of mild tobacco. The portions are plump, moist, and have a quick release of flavor. The taste is very much the traditional snus flavor of citrus. I find the citrus taste of this one to be pretty mild in nature, and not too sour or tart. It’s a very gentle citrus flavor. The tobacco flavor is mild, earthy, and stays behind the flavor of the citrus. While not as peppery as General, for example, I do notice a little pepper taste in the background of this one. The nicotine strength feels to be firmly at the strong level, but it isn’t too over the top. I find the flavor on this one lasts about 45-55 minutes, so a pretty good lifespan for LD Stark!
If you like traditional snus flavor, check out LD. Especially LD Stark Original. While it may not be discussed as much as some other products, it’s definitely worth a try if you like traditional, citrus flavors!
