Skruf Nyans: Havsbris (Vit Portion) - Review (Discontinued). 12 May 2019.

NOTE:  This product has been discontinued and is no longer for sale.

The Skruf Nyans line is a new line from Skruf reminiscent of nature. The name "nyans" translates to "shade" according to Google, but a viewer of our YouTube channel says it translates to "nuance", which sounds better. This line is designed to compete with other "modern premium" products. These are products like XRANGE, Lundgrens, and General One, which are premium products but with cheaper prices. According to the pricing at Snusbolaget, Nyans costs 30kr ($3.15 USD), Lundgrens costs 31kr ($3.26 USD), Swedish Match's One series costs 32kr ($3.36 USD), and the XRANGE series costs 33kr ($3.47 USD). So, with these products you get a good tasting snus but without having to spend too much!

The flavor description says this one has a taste of fresh herbs. Skruf tells me the flavor is "sea breeze". These products come in a 17.6 gram can with 22 portions for 0.8g portions. The nicotine content is 8mg/g (0.8%) or 6.4mg/portion. These also come in full size white portions, not slim portions.

I was really excited for this one because I love sea-inspired products. When it was produced, I really loved the Blue Ocean snus. I also really liked the Lundgrens Marstrand (Limited Edition), which was recently rereleased as Lundgrens Västkusten.  This one honestly reminds me a lot of the Lundgrens Västkusten.  The aroma is a light, airy, mildly sweet floral smell.  The portions are pretty plump for only 0.8g and are quite comfortable in the lip.  The flavor is a pretty gentle taste.  It is a lightly sweet floral taste, with a mild taste of herbs in the background.  There's a very, very mild, almost peppery tobacco taste in the background, but it's not very noticeable.  The flavor, on average, lasts up to about an hour.  I find the nicotine strength to feel about the regular strength level, as well.

As someone who enjoys snus products that remind me of the sea, I really enjoyed this one.  It has a solid taste but with a lower price tag!
