TopSnus.com, so thanks to a friend in Sweden who sent me a bunch of these products to review. Being in the US, I don't always have access to a lot of these more rare products, so I'm always thankful for our readers that help us get ahold of these products. The flavor description says, "Portion snus with a robust tobacco taste and subtle tone of whiskey. Regular portion type for ease of use and handling. Made for Topsnus."
Anno 1852: Violet Lakrits Portion a week ago. The portions aren't too full, but they're not too light. When you open the can, the aroma that comes through is a dark tobacco smell with just a little hint of smoke to it. The flavor is where it confused me. Being a whisky snus, I expected a whisky flavor. However, over the 5 days I spent with this snus, I never noticed any whisky flavor. The tobacco flavor is predominant and comes through as a dark, robust, well rounded tobacco taste, but no whisky. I did notice a little smoke and a little more salt than usual, but no whisky flavor. Does that mean this snus tastes bad? No. It has a pretty decent flavor for the price. But as far as being a whisky snus, it missed the most important part: the whisky flavor.
