Ettan (White Portion) - Review. 6 June 2009
It's been a few years since I've reviewed this one, so I figured I'd give the Ettan line a revisit! In the snus world, it seems there are some die hard Ettan fans out there. I personally have always been a Grov guy. Not that Ettan isn't a good snus, because it is, it's just not something I can personally use all the time; I tend to tire on the flavor if I use it too much. Ettan is an interesting snus for me, it is also one of very few instances where I prefer the white portion version over the original portion version. The flavor description of this snus says, "a robust tobacco flavor and hints of tar, dried grass, malt and a slight touch of dark chocolate". Ettan Original comes in a 21.6 gram can with 24 portions for 0.9 gram portions. The nicotine strength is 8mg/g (0.8%), which is also 7.2mg/portion.
As I mentioned before, Ettan White is one of few cases I prefer the white portion to the original portion counterpart. I think the chocolatey notes of the original portion is what causes me to burn out on Ettan so quickly. However, with the white portion, I find the taste to be much more enjoyable!
