Kapten Lakrits (Mini White Portion) - Review. 11 October 2015.

Kapten is the main product line of AG Snus, much like General from Swedish match.  This snus isn't for sale at the time via BuySnus or SnusCENTRAL, but hopefully that will change eventually. If you're in the US, Snus24.com carries a few of these, but not all of them. So these reviews are mostly for a friends across the pond in the EU who are interested in Kapten Snus. The Kapten brand is described as, "...a snus from the Danish producer AG Snus and builds on knowledge from five generations of tobacco crafts. Kapten Snus is a traditional snus with classic elements like bergamot flavor but has been given a modern touch which makes Kapten a popular and affordable snuff. The product is available in many forms, including Original Portion, White Portion, Mini Pouches and Loose."

As is common in any brand, there has to be a licorice flavor. Though it isn't common in the US, the flavor of salmiak/black licorice is very popular in the Swedish Snus world.  This snus is described as, "...a mini snus with classic tobacco flavor and a hint of licorice." When you open the can, the aroma that comes through is a mild licorice smell - reminds me of black jelly beans. As far as the taste goes, it's a mild and salty black licorice taste with a little tobacco flavor in the background and a hint of pepper.
