Grov Stark Portion - Review. 10 September 2015.

I couldn't have been more excited about this snus. I love Grov, but I've always been hopeful for a stronger version of it's original taste. Grov Black is great, but I've been wanting a Grov Stark for as long as I can remember. Well, the day has come that Swedish Match answered my prayers. Grov Stark is described as, " Grovsnus Strong Portion - an original portion snus. Robust and strong, but well rounded flavor of pure tobacco, with hints of herbs, almond and tarmac. Traditional 1g-portions! Grovnus Strong Portions are moistened for a fast and robust flavor release."

The Grov can is definitely a "manly" looking can.  The text and lettering is bold, and the color scheme is a dark brown/outdoorsy looking scheme.  This is a product I imagine Swedish construction workers carry around.  The new catch lids are great, as well. I used to only be able to fit 3 or 4 in the catch lid, but now I can fit up to 7.  I'm glad Swedish Match switched to the bigger catch lid from the older smaller ones.

When you open the can, the aroma is unmistakably Grov, that dark earthy tobacco taste that we've come to know and love.  This is the first time I've had a one gram portion in quite some time, so it felt almost like a maxi portion in the lip (remember those?).   The taste is quite the same, a bold and rich tobacco flavor with a nice little salt balance in the background, but this time it comes with quite a nicotine kick.  There's also a nice little hint of pepper in the background.  So for those of you who love Grov but want something stronger, or bigger - check this out. It's a killer snus.
