preview article about it back in 2014 and said, "Islay Loose is still coming, tentatively in Summer 2014". It turns out I was off by a few years. GN Tobacco said they wanted to make this the most exclusive and desired los on the market. They took a lot of responsibility in how this one was created. They wanted it to be an Islay Whisky Snus with very specific taste and smell characteristics. They wanted it to have certain characteristics of smokiness, whisky and wood notes. The blending process, tobacco heating and aging processes in this one were something that they said they have never faced before, even with original portion. In the end, they wanted this to be a quality product that was traditional at the same time, as they view the real definition of snus to be los tobacco. They put a lot of focus into the grind. They didn't want it to be clay like or sand like. And in the end, I believe they did a great job.
The product description says, "Islay Whisky is a loose snus with a delicious touch of whisky flavored from the Scottish Island of Islay! Comes in a metal can with an amazing 50 grams of lös snus inside! Islay Whisky loose snus is made of pure tobacco which guarantees the highest quality and best flavor experience. The tobacco is stored in whisky barrels and seasoned with whisky from the Scottish island of Islay. In a flash-back to 2009, Islay Whisky lös snus contains 50 grams of fresh Islay snus per can!"
