NOTE: This version was a limited edition. Göteborg's Rapé White Strong was relaunched in 2017 as a full time addition to the GR lineup. Check out our review, here.
For years people have been asking for a strong version of the popular Göteborgs Rapé. Göteborgs Rapé is a product that has been in my full time rotation since 2012, and one I really enjoy. So I was quite excited to see this new release and new design! The Swedish Match product description says, "Stark is Swedish for strong, and Göteborgs Rapé White Stark is exactly what it is called – a strong variation of the classic Göteborgs Rapé White. Göteborgs Rapé is known for its mellow tobacco taste with notes of juniper and citrus. This edition is limited, and the can is specially designed in the characteristic Göteborgs Rapé colours, based upon a hand-drawn original by Swedish tattoo studio Salong Betong. Göteborgs Rapé Stark will be available during a limited period in Swedish Match Stores, at 7-Eleven, Pressbyrån and selected Ecommerce vendors."
This is a really neat release and I'm glad to see Swedish Match experimenting with their flagship brands. I hope to see more of this in the future. This is a limited edition, so if you want to try it, make sure and get some soon! If you're in the US and want to try it, SnusCENTRAL.com has it available online for order. Hopefully this will sell well and Swedish Match will keep it around!
