I recently became aware that (thanks to this post by snus enthusiast and blogger Chad Jones) Swedish Match has recently released four new snus brands to their lineup. Although they are new, these are primarily popular regular brands which have increased nicotine content with the same great taste. The brands include:
Kronan White (Vit) Stark
“full-bodied and flowery tobacco character with hints of violet and citrus, and a little herbs. Prillan fills the lower lip, is dry on the surface of the low rinnighet and fresh feel but a moist snuff which provides a prolonged flavor release.”
Grov Stark Original
A regular portion snus, Grov stark has a spicy tobacco flavor and strong nicotine kick. As a fan of the tobacco taste found in the original Grov, I look forward to giving this brand a try.
Kaliber Vit Special
Kaliber Vit Special is a white portion snus said to be have a soft pouch that makes for a good fit. It is also quite dry, so I imagine that it would be pretty long lasting. I’m not sure exactly what the taste on this one will be like since its a special, but I do like trying out new snuses so I will have to give this one a go!
General Long White Mint
I expect this brand to combine the fresh taste of General Mini Mint with the comfortable (and long lasting!) portions that the original General Long has. I’m not a huge mint fan, but I do find General Mini Mint to be tasty on occasion, and I imagine that a slim fullsize version could be quite interesting.
Although these brands are not yet available in our online store, expect them to become available within the coming weeks! Keep checking back to The Northerner Blog as this week will include reviews covering several popular new brands of snus including the Skruf Nord 66 line.
