Oden's 69 (White Dry Portion) - Review. 20 November 2015.
I originally reviewed this product back in 2010, but it has changed and improved so much that it's practically a new product, and I felt that it deserved an updated review. I did a big order from Snus24.com, since they stock virtually every Oden's Snus made, and I'll be revisiting a lot of older Oden's Snus reviews over the next month. The product description says, "Odens 69 White Dry Portion is a white portion with a lower humidity than ordinary white portions. Odens 69 is a snus with a classic and somewhat mild taste of tobacco. With an added saltiness the traditional Swedish tobacco snus. Nothing strange simply."
Also, it's important to note that 69 has no special meaning. GN Tobacco numbers their products with two digit codes ending in 9, so it doesn't have any "dirty" meaning to it. Oden's 69 was the first numbered product launched from GN Tobacco, so I thought it might mean something, but over the years as more products have launched I've noticed that it isn't anything more than a product code.
Olde Ving Original Portion, it reminds me a little of that, in smell and taste, but in a white portion version. The flavor is very present, a mild, light and airy taste of citrus with a touch of sweetness. I don't detect any tobacco flavor, so the citrus flavor is definitely front and center. For a value priced snus (2.18$ USD per can at Snus24.com), this one packs a great flavor. It tastes much better than I remember from past experiences!
