Made by Fiedler & Lundgren of Sweden, Knekt Vit Portion is a tobacco dominant snus with a hint of citrus to spice things up. I’m a fan of tobacco dominant snus brands, so once my can arrived in the mail I was quick to pop it open to see what its like! Every can of Knekt Vit comes with twenty portions of standard strength snus (0.8grams per portion each with 8mg of nicotine).
After I opened my can of Knekt Vit, the first thing I noticed was an herbal tobacco aroma, and it was complemented by just a tad of bergamot which was present for the first ten minutes. The flavor really reminded me of a cross between General White and Tre Ankare. The tobacco flavor developed over time (going from mild and herbal to salty and earthy) I usually kept portions in for up to fifty minutes before they started to get too salty for my tastes. I generally removed my portions once I reached the hour mark.
The portions were dry but not overly so, and it took almost five minutes before I began to notice a mild nicotine buzz. The buzz wasn’t too strong and it was very pleasant to have in while working. There was little drip until the fifty minute mark, and even then it wasn’t excessive (so those who enjoy drip can use it for even longer).
In my experience, Knekt Vit is a great earthy tobacco snus available for a reasonable price. It doesn’t pack too strong of a punch, so its great for new snusers and those who are looking for something mild yet tasty. With its mild tobacco taste and long lasting portions, Knekt Vit works well as a daily rotation snus, and it pairs great with tea as well as different types of coffee!
