General Onyx has been a favorite of mine for quite some time now, and it's been a product I've used as my "special occasion" snus for many years. I never imagined the Onyx line would expand, but Swedish Match has decided its time to branch out! The original General Onyx has been rebranded "Onyx Silver", and a new product has launched: Onyx Guld (Gold)! This is another black portion snus, or "svart portion", as the Swedes call it. The flavor description for this one says, "Maximum taste - low drip. Dark and smoky tobacco character with hints of tar, dried fruit and licorice." Each can weighs 21.6g and has 24 portions for 0.9g portions. The nicotine content is 12mg/g (1.2%), or 10.8mg/portion.
General Smoky Oak in a white portion, with licorice. Or, it kind of reminds me of General Mackmyra without whiskey. The nicotine feels to be around the strong level and I find the flavor lasts around 45 minutes on average.
This was a pretty interesting product. It's not something I'd use full time, but I could see myself grabbing a can of it here and there. If you liked General Smoky Oak, you're going to love this one!
