Skruf has started off 2017 in a major way, launching a brand new product line called Skruf Blackline. I was quite excited when I heard about this product popping up in the border stores and now it seems it has made it's way to webstores such as Northerner.com and Snus24.com. Skruf has been a favorite of mine for quite some time, making one product that is in my regular snus rotation - Skruf Xtra Stark (Original Portion). When I heard about Skruf Blackline, I was quite excited about it. It reminded me of the launch of The Lab Series back in 2009, which was developed to be an alternative to common snus brands and products. I get that vibe with Blackline, as well.
Team X, we can see a little more about how this product was developed. They were said to be rebels: “Team-X is a story about a group of Skruf workers who had a vision - doing snus their own way.” They were said to have attitude: “An idea of moving away from rules, senior managers and their daily routine, in order to create a unique snus experience.” They apparently worked underground: “They decided to come together during secret meetings, at hidden places.” They wanted a revolution: “Their idea was not simply about turning white cans into black cans. It was more of a strong desire and a bold belief, to make a momentous change.” To them, the project was about craftsmanship: “It was a rebellious touch with a different mindset to create an alternative of what they thought real craftsmanship is all about.” They describe the Black Line as being extra strong, with “full tobacco taste” and having two formats: slim original portion and slim white portion.
The flavor description says, "Black Line Slim Portion by Skruf has a full tobacco taste. This snus comes in a in a slim shaped pouch for optimal fit. The pouch is moist on the surface for a long-lasting flavor experience."
This is a 21.6 gram can with 24 portions, which comes to 0.9 gram portions. The nicotine strength is 4 out of 4 on the Skruf Scale of Power, which I've estimated in the past to be around 19mg/g.
The flavor description says, "Black Line Slim White Portion by Skruf has a full tobacco taste. This snus comes in a in a slim shaped pouch for optimal fit. The pouch is dry on the surface with a moist contents."
This is a 16.8 gram can with 24 portions, which comes to 0.7 gram portions. The nicotine strength is 4 out of 4 on the Skruf Scale of Power, which I've estimated in the past to be around 19mg/g.
If you like tobacco centric snus products such as Grov, or complex/natural tasting products like Lab 06, this is a must try. It takes tobacco centric snus, adds the sweetness that we know and love, and is made with the craftsmanship that Skruf showcases in their products. This is definitely something I would order again!
