Goteborg's Rape Hjortron - Review. 10 December 2014.

Goteborg's Rape Hjortron is back! This snus was a limited edition product in the summer of 2014 - but by popular demand it was brought back to be added full time to the Goteborg's Rape lineup. The product description describes it as having, "...a fruity tobacco flavor with hints of cloudberry and lime and slightly lavender and cardamom."  I really enjoyed this snus when it was released as a limited edition last summer, so I'm very glad to see it added to the full time lineup.  I use Goteborg's Rape regularly, but this product might give it a run for it's money!


Let's talk about this snus.  First of all, if you aren't familiar with cloudberry, the wiki page has a lot of info about it. When you open a can of GR Hjortron, 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.

  1. GR 1 and 2 are my top 5 favorite snuses, so I would really like to try this. Is it available online anywhere? I haven't seen it
