Four Snus.Biz Lös Reviews - 13 March 2019.

Today I'm going to be reviewing four new products from Snus.biz! I've been a big fan of their stuff for quite a while, and I'm not just saying that because they make my Snubie Mr. Bacon Snus, Snubie Bacon and Cheese Snus, and Snubie Blood Orange and Goji Berry Snus.  I genuinely like what they do.  They're a small batch, craft snus manufacturer making Swedish Snus in Ukraine.  They also only make their snus in the lös format, and every can comes packed with 50 grams of lössnus, just like the old days!  And to get it out of the way before we get into the review, if you want to order their products, you do it by emailing hello@snus.biz to place you orders.  Now, let's get into the reviews!

Cuba Libre Lös

Product Details:  "Cuba Libre Lös is a collaboration between Jim Middleton and Snus.biz.  A Cuba Libre is a cocktail with cola, rum, and lime juice.  The snus contains Cuban Partagas tobacco, as well as fire cured Black Cavendish.  It comes in the combo grind, which is a mix of long cut and regular snus grinding."
Can Contents:  50 grams
Nicotine Strength:  20mg/g

When you open the can, the aroma of cola is very present along with a hint of rum! It smells utterly divine. The tobacco is quite moist, pretty easy to work with, and quickly releases flavor under the lip. The taste is very unique, and quite delicious. The flavors of cola and rum are pretty present and apparent once you put a prilla in. The tobacco flavor mingles in in the background and is rich, earthy, and a great compliment to the cola and rum flavor. The nicotine kick feels to be right at the extra strong level. The flavor, on average, lasts about 45 minutes, which is about how long I can keep a prilla in for.  I have to say, I really enjoyed this one, and I would definitely order it again in the future!

Creme De Menthe Lös

Product Details:  "Inspired by the Creme De Menthe drink, this snus is made from Black Cavendish, Gold Virginia, and Latakia tobacco.  It has the unique flavor combination of both mint and chocolate.  It comes in the combo grind, which is a mix of long cut and regular snus grinding."
Can Contents:  50 grams
Nicotine Strength:  19mg/g

Years ago, V2 Tobacco made a product called Thunder Chocmint, which blended mint and chocolate. To this date, it's one of my all time favorite mint products. Sadly, it was a limited edition. So, I was rather excited about this one because I haven't had a good mint/chocolate snus in years! Upon opening this can, there is a fresh smell of mint accompanied by a dark chocolate smell. Delicious! The tobacco is moist, easy to work with, and feels great in the lip. The flavor is fantastic. The mint flavor is pretty present, and lightly sweet. The tobacco flavor and the chocolate flavor seem to work together as compliments to the mint taste. The chocolate flavor is dark, not overly sweet, and plays well with the rich tobacco character. The nicotine on this one also feels to be at the extra strong level and the flavor, on average, lasts about 45 minutes. I really enjoyed this one and it will definitely be a re-order for me.

Monteserrat (Lime and Mango) Lös

Product Details:  "Monteserrat Lime & Mango Loose is made from Turkish Basma and Golden Virginia tobacco and flavored with juicy key limes from the Lesser Antilles and delicious Spanish mangos!  It comes in the combo grind, which is a mix of long cut and regular snus grinding."
Can Contents:  50 grams
Nicotine Strength:  20mg/g

Montersserat is an island in the Lesser Antilles, hence the name!  When you open the can, there is a tart smell of lime that greets you accompanied by a mild, natural presence of mango!  The tobacco, much like the other two, is soft, moist, and easy to work with.  The flavor is rather tropical, and makes me think of the beach. The lime taste comes through in a natural, tart way, and works well with the fruity mango flavor.  There is a mild tobacco character in the background, but it doesn't overpower the tropical nature of the flavors.  The nicotine on this one also feels to be at the extra strong level and packs a solid kick.  The flavor, on average, lasts about 45 minutes.  I really enjoyed this one, and will be bringing a can of this with me next time I go to the Caribbean!

Snussy Lös

Product Details:  "Snussy Lös snus is made from fire-curing Black Cavendish tobacco based on Virginia variety. It has the very unique flavor of peanut butter.  It comes in the combo grind, which is a mix of long cut and regular snus grinding."
Can Contents:  50 grams
Nicotine Strength:  20mg/g

Going into this one, I wasn't sure what to expect. I mean, peanut butter snus? I like tobacco, and I like peanut butter, but I'll admit - I was a little nervous. The aroma of this one smells like crunchy peanut butter, along with a mild tobacco character. The tobacco, again, is soft, moist, and easy to work with. Now, I know you're wondering the same thing I was wondering when I tried this the first time. And yes, it actually tastes like peanut butter. Snus.biz did a great job capturing the flavor. It's not overly sweet, and tastes like crunchy peanut butter. I feel like I can actually taste peanuts. There is also a mild, earthy tobacco character in the background which works surprisingly well with the peanut butter flavor. The nicotine on this one feels to be right at the extra strong level. The flavor, on average, lasts up to about the 45 minute mark.

I enjoyed all four of these products.  If I had to pick a favorite, I would probably say I enjoyed the Cuba Libre and Mint/Chocolate ones the best.  Those are two I am definitely going to order more of.  The Peanut Butter one was fun to try, and the Lime and Mango is one I'll order again next time I go to the beach!
