Epok Lakrits (Strong) - Review. 9 May 2017.
I actually just reviewed this a year ago, but the Epok line has recently gone through a redesign so I figured it was time to revisit all the Epok products again! When Epok originally launched in 2014, I wasn't a big fan of their products. Their first two, Original and Pinje, launched in April of 2014, followed by Epok Breeze in September 2014. I wasn't a big fan of those products, and they didn't stick around long, either. In February of 2015, however, Winnington launched this product along with several others and they've stuck around since then! At first, I thought white tobacco would be a gimmick, but it's proven so popular it's stuck around, and Swedish Match has even begin making white tobacco products in their G4 line. It proved so popular, in fact, that BAT purchased Winnington in January of 2017. What's interesting about this product is that Winnington discontinued the regular strength Epok Lakrits, so this flavor in the Epok line only comes in strong!
The product description says, "The flavor of Epok Lakrits Slim Strong has a well balanced balance between traditional tobacco flavors and licorice. The flavor also contains notes of anise with some elements of herbs." This snus comes in a 16.8 gram can with 24 portions, or 0.7 gram portions. The nicotine content is 14mg/g (1.4%) or 9.8mg/portion.
