Lundgren's Infusion, which had a taste of ginger and lavender. In 2017, they released Lundgren's Infusion: Lavender and Lemongrass, which was a SnusBolaget exclusive. Now, they have released Lundgren's Marstrand, which appears to only be for sale at SnusBolaget, as well. A special thank you to Snubie friend Michael in Sweden who is always helpful with tracking down these products for review that I can't get ahold of in the US. Now, let's talk about the product!
International Maritime Signal Flags, and they spell out "Lundgrens". There were only 5000 of these made, and this is number 3808/5000. The box is really neat if you're a snus collector like me, and the aluminum can is a neat addition. It has a really sleek look to it.
Marstrand. Their tourism website says Marstrand is one of the most famous towns in Sweden and is located on the Bohuslän coast. The town is famous for its “intense boating culture”, which makes sense as to why this is a nautical themed/inspired snus. The website says sailing has become a public sport there, and apparently the “only natural sailing arena in the world” is located there. The website says Marstrand is the Swedish sailing capital. They also say it is the yearly location for the Marstrand Regatta, Match Cup Sweden and other major sailing championships.
Marstrand Limited Edition 2018
"The search for the optimum snus experience has always been our great driving force, a proud legacy from Fredrik Lundgren who gave us our name. Today, Lundgrens snus is inspired by the huge palette of flavors and aromas found in the Swedish flora. Every product from Lundgrens is a tribute to a region in Sweden, with flavors that arouse associations to popular Swedish places. Lundgrens takes you on a taste trip.
In the summer of 2018 we released Marstrand. Lundgren's Marstrand 2018 is a Fiedler and Lundgren interpretation of Marstrand and is inspired by warm, salt washed rocks, a smell of tarred rowboats, and wild growing rose hips and heather shrubs you can find on the road to the sea. Lundgren's exploration of the Swedish flora has just begun."
"Pleasant reverberation of fine citrus and wild rose from the west coast of Norway adds to the good aftertaste of the mind from the influx of Swedish-grown organic tobacco."
"Earthy and old-fashioned background tones from vast heather hedges contribute character and stability that can only come from so hardy plants."
I really enjoyed this snus. If it were a regular addition to the Lundgren's line, I would definitely buy more!
