The Lab 06 (Extra Strong) - Review. 9 November 2011
As you may know, the Lab series from Swedish Match has recently gone through a redesign and I figured it was time to give this one a revisit! The Lab Series was actually my first "big story" on Snubie.com after I started blogging. I was very excited to get a press release from Swedish Match about this new product. The Lab Series was a big deal when it was launched in 2009 - the cans were non-traditional and the portions came in a new format that revolutionized the snus world - the long portion. It was launched as a "non-traditional" snus, meant to be different from other products on the market. Now, however, everyone is making long/slim portions, but back then, not many people were doing it. When it comes to the product description for Lab 06 it says, "06 Extra Strong Long Lab Series Portion Snus has a strong and spicy tobacco character with hints of herbs, oak and cedar, and a little nuttiness and flowers...and extremely high nicotine content!" This snus comes in a 21.6 gram can with 24 portions for 0.9 gram portions. Nicotine content is 20mg/g (2.0%), which breaks down to 18 mg/portion.
