I'm surprised I've never reviewed this. When I first started writing about snus in 2009, I used to hear about this one a lot from Larry from SnusCENTRAL, I think at one point in time he was really into it or something. Last year I reviewed Classic Strong which I thought was pretty good, the flavor was a very Americanized take on Swedish Snus, a classic flavor but slightly sweet. What's interesting to note is that a lot of times when you have a strong portion of a regular portion snus - the tastes are pretty much the same but with more nicotine in the strong portion than the regular strength portion. This snus is one of very few that I can recall that are completely opposite. But more on that later. The can of the Jakobsson's Classic is now in the same design as all of their snuses which have gone through a makeover - the black cans are out and the white cans are in with the Jakobsson's art. It's sad to see the black cans gone and the Gotlandssnus cans gone, but the new cans aren't bad looking. I just liked the older ones more. I'm glad they kept the cool little compass art in the catch lid, I dunno why - but I always found that to be quite cool.
