Last year, I reviewed Goteborg's Rape Summer Edition 2013: Havthorn. This year, for 2014, another Goteborg's Rape Summer Edition is coming, this one called Hjortron. BuySnus describes this year's release as, "This summer's special guest - Göteborgs Rapé Summer Edition 2014 Hjortron! White portion GR´ snus with cloudberry flavor, the taste of summer and the sea! Cloudberries have a sour-sweet flavor which goes along very nicely with the GR´ base flavor, so be surprised!" I wanted to review this sooner, but I got it the day I left for California last week and haven't had a chance to sit down and do it. But after spending the past week with this snus, I really enjoyed using it and couldn't wait to sit down and talk about it! If you're not familiar with Cloudberry, you can read about it here.
As far as this snus goes - it's a great summer taste. The aroma is a sweet and floral one. The portions are traditional white portions in the Swedish Match star formation. As far as the taste goes - it's a twist on the classic Goteborg's Rape flavor profile. When you taste this snus, you can taste the essence and presence of Goteborg's Rape - the juniper flavor, the herbal/floral notes - but it is blended with this slightly sweet/slightly tart berry taste. It's close to a raspberry flavor, if I had to place it. If you're a fan of GR, or just looking for something new to try out, you'll definitely enjoy this one.
NOTE: Both of these products were limited edition releases and are no longer for sale.
