Another member of the expanding Skruf line of snus, Skruf Slim Stark White is a strong portion snus with 20.5 grams of snus per can. Stark White has a taste similar to that of Slim Xtra Stark and Slim Original, and has a nicotine content which places it between the two in terms of strength.
Upon opening my can of Slim Stark White, I was greeted with an aroma of tobacco, bergamot, and a bit of rose oil, and it reminded me quite a bit was reminiscent of the full size original Skruf. Upon putting a portion in my mouth, I noticed the classic Skruf tobacco taste, and experienced a very slight tingling sensation from the rose oil (which I really enjoy). There was also hints of bergamot, but it was very weak in comparison to the tobacco and rose oil, and it became undetectable after ten to fifteen minutes. The taste of classic Skruf was present, but I found it to be milder than the original Skruf (possibly because there is less surface area with the slimmer portions?).
The portions are where Slim Stark White really excelled. They are long and thin and remind me quite a bit of the lab series portions. In addition, being a white portion snus it was fairly dry, and I didn’t start getting drip until around the one hour mark. I noticed a fairly pleasant nicotine buzz begging around the five minute mark, and it remained constant for about 30 minutes before starting to get weaker.
Overall, Skruf Slim Stark White is a tasty, long lasting, and discreet snus that provides a nice buzz for fans of strong (but not extra strong) snus. Although the taste wasn’t as strong as its full-sized counterpart, it still provided me with a nice compromise between the larger portions and the classic Skruf taste. I enjoy using Stark White when I need to be discreet about my snus usage, and it works well for this purpose. If you enjoy the original Skruf but are looking for a slimmer portion design, I highly recommend ordering a can and giving it a try!
