Kurbits Snus: Soldat (Slim Vit) - Review (Discontinued). 22 December 2019.

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

Kurbitssnus is a new snus manufacturer in Sweden that resulted in the meeting of an avid snus fan and an innovative entrepreneur. I recently reviewed their regular size portions products: Kurbitssnus Fäbodsnus, Kurbitssnus Morgondagg, Kurbitssnus Soldat, and Kurbitssnus Soldat Vinter.  I was recently browsing SnusBolaget.se, and saw they had slim versions of these, so I figured I would do reviews of these versions, as well! When it comes to Soldat, the flavor description I was given for this one says the flavor is "For every day use". Snusbolaget describes it by saying: "A snus with a clear and fresh taste."  Each can weighs 14g and has 24 portions, for 0.58g portions. The nicotine content of this one is 14mg/g (1.4%), which breaks down to 8.12mg/portion.

Kurbits Snus gave me an extended description of this product I wanted to share, because it says a lot about how they approach snus, that it isn't just the flavor, it's the experience: "Sweden has a long tradition of people working as uniformed personnel. Everyone who works like this knows the importance of a fresh snus when the action starts and the adrenaline rushes through the entire body. The equipment gets a last check, the plan is repeated in the head and at the last second a new snus is put in place to get everything in place. The snus will become a part of the user to make the experienced user complete. In Soldat it’s a flavour that last everyday. Something that can be a part of us everyday and creates the feeling of the complete user. Every demanding day demands snus that lasts."

If you had the regular size version of Soldat before, this one is the same, but in a slimmer portion. The aroma is lightly peppery, with a mild tobacco character, and a hint of citrus. The portions are dryer than the average white portion, but still comfortable in the lip. The flavor is a mild, gentle tobacco character with a hint of citrus to it. The citrus flavor is pretty gentle, and more dialed back than General, for example. There’s also a nice peppery presence to this one. It’s definitely a trooper (or, “soldier”), with a long lasting flavor that generally goes 1-1.5 hours. The nicotine strength feels to be around the regular level.  If you like traditional flavored products, you'll probably dig this one.  Also, a shout out to my friend Daniel Carlsson (Pinhead), who helped develop this product.  Great job!
