After having previously reviewed the Julesnus made by Gotlandssnus, I decided to keep up with the holiday reviews and cover Nordstrommen Julesnus. Manufactured by V2 Tobacco in Denmark, Nordstrommen Julesnus has an average nicotine content (8mg/g), and 10 grams of snus per can. Julesnus is said to be flavored with mulled wine, cinnamon, and cardamon (an herb similar to ginger). I’m a fan of V2’s offerings, so I was looking forward to try their Julesnus.
Upon opening my can, I was greeted with a powerful aroma quite unlike Gotland’s Julesnus (even though they contain similar flavors). I found it to smell reminded me a lot of red licorice (but not as nice), and it was very overpowering making it difficult to notice any other smells. Once I placed a portion in my mouth, I noticed an odd taste of ginger which I did not enjoy at all. The snus was overpowered by this ginger flavor, and I wasn’t able to taste any other flavors. I also didn’t notice a tobacco taste with Nordstrommen Julesnus. After about fourty minutes, the flavor became really bitter and I removed the portion.
The portion material was ok, but really nothing to write home about (they were smooth, flat, and rectangular). I didn’t experience any drip, but the flavor did become quite bitter and never really developed over time. I had a very mild nicotine buzz set in after about the 7 minute mark, and it lasted for about 15 minutes.
Overall, I didn’t enjoy my can of Nordstrommen Julesnus, and I don’t believe I’ll be ordering any more. Instead, I plan to stick with Gotland’s Julesnus as I feel the flavor is much richer, tastier, and complex. As someone who likes most of V2’s product line, I was surprised at how much I disliked their Julesnus.
