Today we are talking about one of the stars of the LD lineup, and a criminally underrated snus – LD Salmiak (Original Portion)! It’s no secret that licorice flavored products are incredibly popular, particularly in Europe, but this is one that truly stands out. It has a great flavor, and has recently gone through a sleek new redesign thanks to the folks at Nordic Snus AB! LD is also a “budget” snus, but the experience is anything but. It delivers a quality product, at a budget price!
The flavor is described as “a mild and fruity taste of salmiak and rich tobacco.” Each can weighs 18 grams, and has a nicotine content of 10mg/g.
When you open the can, the aroma that jumps out at you is a very present black licorice smell. The portions, as you can see, are moist, plump, and they also feel great under the lip. The flavor is a lot like the aroma; black licorice is the heavy hitter here. It’s a little saltier than the average licorice snus, and it even has a mild mix of pepper/tobacco in the background. Delicious! The nicotine, though 10mg/g, feels to be about the regular strength level. The flavor longevity seems to be around the 40-50 minute mark.
In terms of licorice products, you can’t go wrong with LD Salmiak (Original Portion)! It’s one of the better ones on the market for those who enjoy a great tasting licorice flavor!
