Produced by Skruf Snus AB under their Knox Snus label, Knox White Stark Portion is a strong portion snus which promises to offer quality snus at an affordable price. Every can of Knox Stark has 20 grams of strong snus. As someone who enjoys tobacco flavored snuses, I was excited to give Knox stark a go!
Once I opened my can of Knox Stark, I soon noticed an aroma of tobacco and herbs, and the combination reminded me quite a bit of brands such as (the now discontinued) General Green Harvest as well as Blagul Original. Upon placing a portion in my mouth, I first noticed a smooth tobacco taste, which was soon complimented by herbal undertones. I felt that the mild tobacco taste went well with the herbal notes, and portions were not too salty and easy to leave in for a long time. The tobacco taste was quite basic and not as complex as the Skruf line of snus, so I didn’t find that it developed very much over time (which fine with me!).
The portions were essentially the same design as those used in the main Skruf brand, and they also had a low moisture content. The portions produced very little drip, and I was able to leave them in for over an hour without experiencing any drip. The nicotine strength was also quite good, and I began to experience a strong nicotine buzz after a few minutes.
Overall, I really enjoyed Knox Stark Portion, and it is probably one of my favorite brands of snus. The great taste combined with the low price makes it a very attractive brand, and I feel that Skruf did a great job this brand. I plan to add it to my daily rotation as a quality alternative to higher priced brands! Knox Stark pairs well with tea as well as IPA beers.
