Göteborgs Prima Fint Lös - Review. 20 August 2015.
Göteborg's Prima Fint has been my favorite los snus ever since I first started using snus in 2009. This is a very interesting product, because it's one that only comes in the lös format. It also has a very interesting history, going back over 100 years. Eric Mellgren started a tobacco factory in Göteborg in 1826, which he ran by himself until his son took it over in 1850. In 1915, the Swedish Parliament voted to nationalize all tobacco production to raise funds for national defense and a new pension system. In 1919, the Swedish Tobaco Monopoly registered one of the Mellgren's recipes as a new brand - Göteborg's Prima Fint No930. Eventually the number was dropped, but the product remained the same!
The product description for this product says, "The tobacco is finely ground and the taste is recognized by its dark tobacco character, with elements of smoke, dried fruits and rose hips". It comes in a 42 gram can and has a nicotine strength of 8mg/g.
This is, in my opinion, the best lös on the market. If you're new to lös or love tobacco centric flavors, this is a must try!
