When the Lab 02 launched back in 2009, it innovated the snus world. It introduced the slim format to the world, and brought about a realization that there is a segment of the snus community that wants non-drip/low-drip snus portions. The Lab was a non-snusers snus. It was meant to be different, and think outside the box. And even today, it is still one of the most unique products on the market. The flavor description says, “The Lab 02 Strong Slim has a dark tobacco taste with notes of green herbs, oak and cedar, along with hints of almond. This snus has a long and narrow full sized pouch which has a moistened surface for a quick release of flavor.” The Lab 02 has 24 portions per can, and a 15mg/g nicotine strength.
When you open the can, the aroma that greets you is very natural, very outdoorsy. There’s a subtle tobacco character, some notes of oak, and a slight nutty tone. The portions are slim, rather soft, and have a quick release of flavor. They’re moist, but don’t have a lot of drip to them. The taste is very natural, much like the aroma. The soft, earthy tobacco flavor is present and comes with a slight nutty hint, and this really nice oaky taste. I don’t really pick up any herbs, or almond. The nicotine level is strong, but not too incredibly strong. And the flavor lasts quite a while, usually up to an hour. That’s impressive, for an original portion.
If you want a snus that is different, a snus that is unique, and one that has an outdoorsy flavor, check out Lab 02. It’s one of the best of the Lab series, and is easily an all day snus!
