Another new release by Fiedler & Lundgren, Lundgrens Vit Portion is a white portion snus with a tobacco dominant flavor. Each can of Vit Portion comes with 21.6 grams of regular strength snus (8mg of nicotine per portion).
With my can open, I soon detected a strong aroma of herbal tobacco with some floral undertones and maybe a hint of pepper. As someone who really enjoys tobacco dominant snuses, I placed a portion in my mouth and soon began to taste a very pleasant taste of sweet tobacco and flowers. The peppery aroma I noticed was also present in taste, but it was quite weak and disappeared fairly quickly. The flavor wasn’t exceptionally strong, and the tobacco wasn’t very salty tasting (which I found to be a nice departure from some brands such as General Variation Smoky Oak. I was able to taste the flavor for around thirty minutes, and afterwards it began to taste increasingly mild until I could hardly taste it by the fifty minute mark.
The portion material was a type I’ve never seen before, and portions had fairly large perforations in them. According to F&L, these perforations are designed to release flavors easier than traditonal portions, and after about ten minutes I definitely noticed flavor leaking through, but since the flavor itself was mild, I found it to be subtle and in the background. Although they felt a little big in my mouth, the material used to make the portions was exceptionally soft, and I felt like they rivalved the softness of General Natufibe (but didn’t fit as comfortably in my lip). The nicotine buzz came on slowly (due to the dryness of the portions), and after about five minutes I had a pleasant buzz going. I experienced little drip with Vit Portion, and was able to keep portions in for an hour without experiencing much drip.
Overall, I really enjoyed Lundgrens Vit. The flavor was tasty but mild, and combined with the dryness of the portions, it was easy to enjoy a variety of beverages, and I felt that Earl Grey tea really complimented the herbal sweetness of Vit. I recommend trying Lundgrens Vit if you’re looking for a mild tasting herbal tobacco snus!
