March 20, 2021My favorite snus
GR lives up to it's reputation and beyond. I was a bit hesitant to try this as I have always had a great distaste for gin and that's been the only benchmark I've had on the flavor of juniper berries. However, the praise for this was so great that I felt I had to buy some and see. I'm very happy that I did so. The flavor hits very quickly after putting in a prilla. The herbal hints pairing perfectly with the aromatic, dry, bitter flavor of the juniper berries, all over a full-bodied, high quality tobacco. There's nothing I've tried yet that could compare to how wonderful and palatable all those flavors are, how they complement and highlight each other for a strong, enjoyable snus. I cannot recommend this enough!

As someone new to loose snus, I found this to be a good starting point. Hand baking for the first time was not overly difficult. The nicotine hits fast and isn't overwhelming. Flavor wise it showcases the flavor of the tobacco while having a subtle fruit&herbal undertone. Over all its very good and I see why it has stood the test of time.

As you open the can you get a smell of quality tobacco and some whiffs of aromatic herbs and juniper. This is more rough cut snus that does not handbake as easily as Goteborgs Prima Fint and it probably wouldn't hurt to invest in an icetool for next time. Has a nice strong tobacco flavour that is not at all overwhelmed by the herbals. I feel the nicotine in this one also hits harder/faster, but I assume that's due to the cut of this one.
