General (Original Portion) - Review. 2 August 2014.
General Snus is the king of Swedish Snus, in my opinion, and it's my personal favorite snus. When I think of Swedish Snus, my mind always goes straight to General. From the heritage, to the taste - nothing beats it. The General Snus line recently got a new look, in the US and in Sweden, so I figured it was time to revisit it! In this picture, the bronze can (right) is the Swedish market can, and the tan-ish can (left) is the US market design. One thing I want to be clear about is this - General Snus sold in Sweden and General Snus sold in the US is the exact same product, only with a different design! I get that question often, so I wanted to clarify.
General Original Portion's flavor is described as a "Spicy tobacco character with elements of bergamot, as well as tea, hay and leather." General Original comes in a 24 gram can with 24 portions, for plump 1 gram portions. The nicotine content is 8.5mg/g (0.85%) which breaks down to 8.5mg/portion.
General Snus, in my opinion, is the best snus around. It's been a snus I've used daily since September of 2009. And the best way to experience it is with General Lös, or General Original Portion. If you're in the US, you can buy it locally by hitting up the store locator at GeneralSnus.com!
