Initially released in 2005 by Swedish Match, Kronan Vit Portion is a value priced snus designed to deliver a great taste for those on a budget. Each can of Kronan comes with 19.2 grams of average strength snus with .8 grams of snus per portion.
Upon opening my can of Kronan, I noticed a strong aroma of spicy tobacco, with hints of bergamot and floral undertones. Once I placed a portion of Kronan Vit in my mouth, I immediately noticed a spicy tobacco taste, and I found it to be quite pleasant. There was also a slight taste of bergamot and herbs, which I felt helped to compliment the tobacco taste without overpowering it. After about fifteen minutes, the bergamot and floral flavors began to subside, and I was left with the taste of spicy tobacco, which stayed strong until about the forty-five minute mark before it began to become increasingly salty (I took my portion out at the one hour and fifteen minute mark due to the saltiness).
The portions were of average quality, nothing special but they did the job well. Being a white portion snus, Kronan Vit was quite dry and didn’t drip very much. After using several portions, I only began to experience the start of drip around the one hour mark. The nicotine hit came on after about five minutes, and I began to notice a slight nicotine buzz which lasted for about forty mintues.
Overall, Kronan Vit is a tasty tobacco dominant snus, and the spicy flavor combined with hints of bergamot and herbs was very pleasant. I highly recommend Kronan Vit to lovers of tobacco flavored snus brands, as well as those who are on a budget but still want to enjoy high quality snus. Kronan Vit pairs well with coffee and stronger tasting liquors such as scotch. As a fan of tobacco flavored snus brands, I plan to add Kronan Vit to my daily rotation in order to mix things up a little bit.
