Manufactured by Skruf Snus AB, Skruf Slim Nordic White is a dry snus with a licorice flavor and a slim portion design. Being a licorice fan and having tried out both Offroad Licorce and Jakobsson’s Licorice, I was curious to see how a Skruf variant would taste in comparison. Every 0.8 gram portion of Nordic White contains 8mg of nicotine, and there are 24 portions per can.
As soon as I opened my can of Nordic White, I was greeted with a very pleasant licorice aroma. This aroma was not overpowering, and it was accompanied by a slight tobacco smell as well as some herbs that I can’t exactly quite pin down. After putting a portion in my mouth, it took about five minutes before the flavor really began to develop. It was a salty licorice flavor, which eventually gave way to a licorice and tobacco taste which I found to taste delicious. I was surprised to see that the licorice flavor lasted quite a long time, and as it began to fade it had a synergistic effect with the tobacco, creating a tasty snus brand. The flavor also lasted quite a bit of time, and I had no problem keeping a portion in for fourty-five minutes without experiencing any major loss of flavor, aside from the licorice becoming toned down over time.
The portion design is excellent, and Nordic White portions fit discreetly in my mouth while providing maximum comfort. Because Nordic White is a dry portion snus, I found I could leave the portions in for approximately an hour before I began to lose flavor, and during this time I didn’t really get any drip.
Overall, Skruf Slim Nordic White is probably my favorite licorice flavored snus brand that I’ve tried to date. It has a very natural tasting licorice flavor, and I find that the salt and tobacco balances out the licorice flavor. I highly recommend this brand to both licorice lovers and people who are looking to add something small, discreet, and tasty to their daily snus rotation. The dry portions also go quite well with a nice cold beverage, especially on a warm afternoon!
