Released by Swedish Match as a summer special, Goteborg’s Rapé Hjortron puts a spin on the classic taste of Goteborg’s Rapé by spicing things up with hints of lavender, cloudberry, lime, and cardamom. Goteborg’s Rapé Hjortron is a white portion snus brand with 0.9 grams of snus per average strength portion.
After opening up my can of Hjortron, I picked up on an aroma of mild tobacco, but what I definitely noticed the most was the hints of cloudberry and lime, both of which smelled delicious! Once I got a portion in, I soon tasted the cloudberry, and there was hints of lime which added a unique twist. I didn’t taste much tobacco, but after about twenty minutes I began to notice subtle undertones of lavender which created a new taste after the tobacco flavor started to become apparent at the twenty-five minute mark. Over time the flavors became increasingly subdued, and a little past the hour mark all I could taste was a faint hint of mild tobacco.
Hjortron came arranged in Swedish Match’s signature star formation, and all of the portions were comfortably pre-formed. As a white portion snus it took a little bit of time for the flavor and nicotine buzz to set in, and I began to feel it at the five minute mark. I only began to experience drip around the forty minute mark and it was quite pleasant before becoming to salty for my tastes after about an hour. I do wish portions were 1 full gram instead of 0.9, but they are still pretty flavorful and there’s 24 of them per can.
If you’re a fan of mild tobacco and hint of fruit in your snus, I highly recommend giving Goteborg’s Hjortron a try (I recommend picking some up sooner than later as it is a limited edition summer special!). I really enjoy the mild fruity taste, and the dryness of the portions allows Hjortron to pair quite well with a number of sweet summer beverages (such as lemonade shandy!).
