Produced by Skruf Snus AB, Skruf Slim Fresh Hylleblomst White is a relatively new variant of Skruf which is said to have a floral taste to it. This flavor profile is quite uncommon for snus brands, so I was pretty excited to open up a fresh can and give it a try! Each can of Fresh Hylleblomst contains 16.8 grams of average strength snus in a slim portion format.
After opening my can of Slim Fresh Hylleblomst, I was soon greeted by a subtle floral aroma with hints of herbs and sweetness in the background. Once I placed a portion in my upper lip, I soon began to notice a combination of floral and herbal flavors which happened to be slightly minty and mildly sweet. Unlike most types of Skruf, I found that I never really detected much of a tobacco taste with Hylleblomst. Over time, the floral and herbal flavors slowly weakened and were replaced by a mild grassy taste which was a tad salty. The flavors lasted surprisingly long without becoming overly bitter, and I found myself leaving portions in for a little over an hour at times.
The portions were long and slim, and I found that they fit comfortably in my lip and were virtually unnoticeable. As a white portion snus the portions were fairly dry, and as a result it took about four minutes before I began to feel the onset of a nicotine buzz which was pleasant and not too strong. Moreover, the dryness of the portions allowed me to keep them in for over an hour without experiencing excessive drip.
Overall, I find that Hylleblomst White is an interesting snus, and there’s not many brands out there which taste quite like it. In addition, I found that Hylleblomst’s flavor pairs exceptionally well with the hoppy notes of IPA beers! I recommend Hylleblomst White to those who are seeking a snus with a long lasting yet mellow herbal taste.
