Formerly known as Gotlandssnus Green, Jakobsson’s Flader is a regular strength apple flavored snus manufactured by Gotlandssnus AB. Jakobsson’s Flader is marketed as a regular portion snus, and it contains 9mg of nicotine per one gram portion. Every can of Flader comes with 20 portions.
When I first opened my portion of Jakobsson’s Flader, I was surprised to be greeted with a pleasant smell which reminded me of biting into a fresh Granny Smith Apple. I also detected a slight floral aroma, and this aroma was very nice.
Once I placed a portion of Jakobsson’s Flader in, I could immediately taste a fresh (yet nuanced) green apple flavor that was very tasty. I also picked up a subtle hint of pear, which I felt produced a fresh and fruity taste alongside the green apple. Jakobsson’s Flader is manufactured with a form of tobacco known as Alida. Alida is a special type of tobacco grown only in Gotland, and is known for having a delicious taste. I really enjoy Alida tobacco, because I find it to be very mild tasting which helps to compliment the fruity flavors found in this brand of suns. My only complaint was that I find that the fruit flavor wears off rather quick, and I found it hard to taste anything but a mild tobacco flavor after about twenty five minutes. After the hour mark, I found the taste transitioned into a bitter one, and I soon took my portion out.
Jakobsson’s Flader portions come in the same style of other snus varieties manufactured by Gotland AB, and although the portions fit comfortably in my mouth they aren’t my favorite type of material. I had my portion in for approximately forty minutes, and during this time the snus did not drip at all.
Overall, Jakobsson’s Flader is a delicious tasting fruity snus, and should please anyone that enjoys a dominant fruit flavor in their snus. I like to add Flader to my daily rotation whenever I feel like mixing things up with a nice tasting fruit suns.
