Jakobsson's Special Salmiak (Discontinued) - Review. 15 November 2017.

NOTE:  This product was a limited edition and has been discontinued.

I've been really looking forward to reviewing this product. A few months back I reviewed Jakobsson's Special Cola which was a limited edition flavor that proved popular enough to be added to the full time lineup. I was excited to review this one because it's a limited edition release, it's also been years since Gotlandssnus made a licorice/salmiak snus, and because there are very few salmiak snus products on the market. When it comes to the flavor description for this product it says, "Jakobsson's Special Salmiak Strong Portion Snus is the second snus in this limited edition series. It has a strong taste of salmiac and salty licorice, without added sweetness." This product comes in a 20 gram can with 20 portions for 1 gram each. The nicotine content is 14mg/g (1.4%), which breaks down to 14mg/portion!

When you open the can, the aroma that comes through is a rich, bold smell of black licorice. It's not too sweet smelling, either, which is a nice added bonus. The portions are nice and plump and feel great in the lip. Jakobsson's portions are amongst the best on the market as they are moist, but not too moist. This yields a more present flavor, but also a longer lasting taste than most original portion. When it comes to the taste of this one, it is salty! If you don't like salty black licorice, you won't enjoy this one. But if you do, you're going to love this product. The flavor of licorice in this product is very present and it isn't too sweet, which is great.  This one has a great taste!  The flavor of this one lasts a good amount of time; I've found I can enjoy this one for almost an hour.  The nicotine kick on this one is strong, but not too strong.  It does have a nice extra kick to it, but it's not over the top.  At the end of the day, this is one of the best licorice snus products I've tried yet.  If you're a fan of salty black licorice, you're going to really enjoy this one.


  1. There's not much to say about this snus: No lack, just great taste. The very longlasting salt / and pure Salmiak combination leaves everything behind on the market. In my oppinion a great release and a wonderfully crafted Snus of Jakobsson's - my favourite after meal snus, great with a cold beer, coffee or schnapps!
