Crafted Snus (Whisky) by Conny Anderson - Preview. 30 September 2015.

Check out our full review of Crafted Snus: Whisky - here!

Earlier this year, we reported that our friend Conny Andersson would be leaving GN Tobacco and moving on to AG Snus.  I've known Conny for several years, having originally met him in Sweden in 2010 and a few times here and there when he would visit the United States.  It's no secret that Conny is a snus guru and has crafted some of the finest tastes the world has ever known - including Swedish Match's Kardus snus, General Snus: Green Harvest, GN Tobacco's Islay Whisky Snus and many more exciting products.

Crafted Snus: Whisky is his latest product and has a tentative release date of October 26th, 2015.  Keep in mind that date is tentative and it may come later, but that seems to be the goal.  It will launch in original portion and white portion.  Conny is a master blender when it comes to selecting tobaccos and flavors to accompany his snus products, so I have no doubt that his latest release will be nothing short of delicious.

Crafted Snus Whisky (Original Portion)

Flavor description via SnusBolaget.se:  "A premium snus with the taste of single malt whiskey from the Scottish Highlands. Crafted Snuff Whisky Original is an uncompromising experience that have come out of a collaboration between Conny Andersson, Master Blender, and AG Snuff. Comes in beautifully engraved steel box."

Flavor description via TopSnus.com:  "Made of tobacco (Latakia and Mata Norte) stored in used whiskey barrel to make it so complex and flavorful as possible. Flavored with a single malt whiskey from the Scottish highlands - and with added flavouring made after the whiskey. On top light tones of chocolate and walnut."

Crafted Snus Whisky (White Portion)

Flavor description via SnusBolaget.se: "A premium snus with the taste of single malt whiskey from the Scottish Highlands. Crafted Snuff Whisky White is an uncompromising experience that have come out of a collaboration between Conny Andersson, Master Blender, and AG Snuff. Comes in beautifully engraved steel box."

The can doesn't appear to have any graphics or art around the side, only on the top.

The catch lid appears to be on the inside of the lid, like with Islay Whisky Snus.

  1. Chad, a couple questions: Is this going to be a fire-cured or pasteurized product? And any update on the Islay lös release? Thanks.

  4. Cans appear to be all-metal, minus the catch lid? Possible prototype cans? Looks good. Man, I hope they get this stuff out & don't sit on it like the majority of the Andersson-inspired snus.
