The Lundgrens brand is very popular in Sweden, and it makes sense. The brand has unique, outdoor inspired flavors, the innovative FlexLid, and the exclusive perforated portion. Fiedler & Lundgren really created something unique and special with this product line. Today we’re talking about my favorite Lundgrens product, Lundgrens Västkusten (West Coast) Perforated White Portion! The product description for this one says, “Lundgrens Västkusten White is made from organic swedish grown tobacco. The taste is inspired by citrus with elements of wild rose from the west coast rosehip and with floral heather that is added to the classic taste of Lundgren’s snus. This snus has a regular sized perforated white pouch, to enhance the flavor and fit. The can has a flexilid. The space where you put your used pouches expands to fit more.” Each can weighs 21.6g and has 24 portions, with a nicotine content of 10mg/g.
The perforated portion is exclusive to the Lundgrens brand and is incredibly unique. It has little holes in it which allow for a quicker flavor release. This format also comes with the long lasting flavor of a white portion, so it’s the best of both worlds. I was worried that snus would come out of the holes and into my mouth, but thankfully it did not happen.
The brand also comes with the FlexLock, or FlexLid, which is a catch lid that expands as you add more portions to it.
This snus has a great aroma! There’s a sweet smell of rose, an herbal hint, and some subtle tobacco. It definitely makes me think of the sea, for some reason. The portions are pretty comfortable in the lip, but I find if I use this snus exclusively for long periods of time it can become irritating. So it’s not a full time use product for me, but something I’d use on occasion. The flavor is delicious, however. The rose flavor is present, and lightly sweet. There’s also this neat little herbal thing going on in the background, which works well with the rose. Then, I pick up a gentle tobacco character as well. It doesn’t overpower the other flavors, though. The nicotine strength on this one feels to be about the regular level, and the flavor lasts up to about an hour!
Lundgrens Västkusten (West Coast) Perforated White Portion is a unique, great tasting snus. If you want something a little different, this is a nice change of pace!
