Developed by Fiedler & Lundgren, Lucky Strike Strong (formerly known as Lucky Strike Bold) is a strong portion snus which contains 12mg of nicotine per portion. Each can of LS Strong comes with twenty-four 0.9 gram portions. Having enjoyed smoking Lucky Strike cigarettes while on vacation in the Carribean years ago (they don’t sell them where I live), I was excited to try out a snus brand which had the authentic toasted taste of Luckies.
The flavor is where LS Strong really shines. When I took a whiff of a freshly opened can of LS, I noticed a strong tobacco smell with not much else. When I tried a portion out for the first time, I was surprised to discover how nice the taste was. It was a very rich tobacco flavor, and I couldn’t taste any other flavors besides that of pure tobacco. The flavor initially came on strong, and as time went on it began to become milder. Although it didn’t taste exactly like a Lucky Strike cigarette, I could definitely see a resemblance. In my experience, the snus version was more pleasing since my tastebuds weren’t being numbed by smoke and other harmful chemicals found in cigarettes. I also had a longer lasting nicotine buzz from LS Strong than I did with cigarettes. Because Strong is an original portion snus and was very moist, the nicotine buzz came on quickly and was quite good.
Despite really enjoying the taste of LS Strong, the portions were one area in which I felt LS Strong really needs to improve. They are very thin and tall, and tend to produce quite a bit a drip. The problem is worsened by the fact that the portions are very moist to begin with. I kept my portions of LS Strong in for about thirty minutes before I found they got too runny for my tastes (even less if I was drinking coffee at the same time)
Overall, Lucky Strike Strong is a tasty tobacco flavored snus which produces quite a strong kick. As a fan of tobacco flavored snus brands, I took a liking to Strong, and can definitely see myself adding it to my daily rotation (it pairs quite well with coffee and dark ales). Unfortunately, due to trademark regulations, all Lucky Strike brands of snus cannot be shipped to the United States. Howevever, if you live outside the U.S, then I highly recommend giving Lucky Strike Strong a try, especially if you’re a fan of Lucky Strike Cigarettes.
