Not too long ago, fans of Mustang Snus were saddened to find out that Swedish Match was discontinuing those products. They did, however, announce those products would live on in Kaliber+. Swedish Match said, "To make room for new and updated versions of other snus brands, Mustang original portion and Mustang white portion will be discontinued this spring. In its place, we launch the new product Kaliber+, which has a similar flavor. Kaliber+ is available as both original portion and white portion from February and onwards." Going into these products, I expected them to be an exact clone of Mustang. It's true that they are similar, but I did notice some differences in these products. The can designs are similar to other products in the Kaliber line, having a very simple and clean look.
The flavor description of Kaliber+ Original Portion says, "A dark and spicy tobacco taste with notes of lingonberries and bergamot, along with hints of cocoa and bitter orange."
The can is an 18g can with 20 portions, or 0.9 gram portions. The nicotine content is 1.4%, or 14mg/g, which equals out to about 12.6mg per portion of nicotine.
The flavor description of Kaliber+ White Portion says, "A mellow and spicy tobacco taste with distinct notes of bergamot and tea, along with hints of rose and cardamom." The can is an 18g can with 20 portions, or 0.9 gram portions. The nicotine content is 1.4%, or 14mg/g, which equals out to about 12.6mg per portion of nicotine.
General White Portion, but the citrus and pepper flavors are more mild. The flavor lasts quite a while, I've had these in for up to an hour and a half. The nicotine strength isn't too strong. Like the original portion, it's 14mg/g or 12.6mg/portion. It feels closer to a strong than an extra strong and isn't going to knock you out by any means!
As far as these two products go, I'd say the original portion was the better of the two and one that I might re-order again. The white portion is nothing spectacular. But, if you're a fan of the traditional Swedish Snus flavor profile and want to save a few bucks it might be one to try out.
