Lundgren's Skåne Vit Slim - Review. 20 June 2017.

Review Updated: 5 December 2018 (New Can Design)

I originally reviewed Lundgren's Skåne Vit back in November of 2015, and it's become of my personal favorites. I find the flavor to be unique and quite enjoyable! Now, Fiedler and Lundgren have released it in a slim portion version. This one, however, is not perforated like the regular size Lundgren's Skåne Vit. The flavor description for this snus says, "Fresh and full-bodied taste of tobacco, and with notes of wild berries."  This product comes in a 19.2 gram can with 24 portions, for 0.8 gram portions.  This is a regular strength, 8mg/g (0.8%) snus.  With 0.8 gram portions, that breaks the nicotine content down to  6.4mg/portion.  This snus also comes with the FlexLock/FlexLid, which is a neat addition!  It is a rubbery material that expands as you put more used portions into it.  To me, this is one of the greatest snus innovations in recent memory.

As far as this snus goes, it's virtually the same as the regular Lundgren's Skåne Vit, but in a slim portion with a milder taste. When you open the can, the aroma that comes through is a light smell of pine, a mild berry presence, and a light herbal aroma. The portions are slim, and have a soft portion material that feels comfortable in the lip. These, however, are not perforated. What I've found is that the flavor comes out slower than the perforated, regular sized portions, and the taste is also milder than the regular sized version.  Don't get me wrong, it's still a great tasting snus!  The flavor profile is a mild berry taste which reminds me of a light cranberry flavor.  There is a nice salt balance, a taste of pine, and a light herbal flavor.  There is also a gentle earthy tobacco presence in the background.  The taste lasts a good amount of time with these; I've been able to enjoy this snus for up to an hour!  The nicotine strength feels to be about regular strength, as well.

It's rare that I will say the slim version is inferior to the regular size version.  However, with this one, I enjoy the regular size version more.  The flavor releases quicker and seems to be more present in the perforated version.  This isn't a bad snus by any means, it has a great taste!  But for me personally, I'll stick with the regular sized, perforated version.
