Produced by Skruf Snus AB, Skruf Cranberry is a regular portion snus with a succulent cranberry flavor. As a fan of the Skruf line of snus, I felt that it was time to share my feelings on the Cranberry flavor with readers here on the blog! Every can of Skruf Cranberry has 22 grams of average strength snus (approx 8mg/g of nicotine).
Upon opening up my can of Skruf Cranberry, the first thing I noticed was an aroma comprised of tobacco, cranberry, and a hint of rose oil. Once I placed a portion in my mouth, I soon began to taste a cranberry flavor which was mixed in with that of tobacco. After a few minutes I began to notice the taste of rose oil, which was quite pleasant as it helped to compliment the cranberry flavor and round out the taste of the tobacco. One thing I find with Skruf snuses is that the tobacco tends to be full-bodied and more dominant than other fruity brands (such as Jakobsson’s Strong Melon). After about twenty minutes, the cranberry flavor became increasingly subdued and gave way to a tobacco taste that reminded me of Skruf Original.
The portions were full-sized, and use the same material used by other Skruf products such as Skruf Xtra Stark. I found them to be of average quality and they fit comfortably in my mouth. I was able to keep portions in for about 35 minutes before I began to experience drip. I found the drip to be quite strong tasting, and after 45 minutes the snus began to taste quite salty and bitter. One good thing however was the nicotine kick. After only a few minutes of having a portion in, I began to notice a strong and long lasting nicotine buzz which I really enjoyed. Sometimes I find regular portion snus to be a little on the weak side, but Skruf Cranberry certainly did the trick.
Overall, I really enjoyed Skruf Cranberry. It has a great cranberry taste which works to compliment the classic tobacco taste of Skruf Original without overpowering it. The nicotine hit also came on quick and strong, which was very nice. I recommend Skruf Cranberry to those looking for a great snus with a slight fruity taste to mix up their daily rotation. I can definitely see myself adding Cranberry to my daily snus rotation, and it works well as a midday snus for me.
