One Gul/Yellow (Apelsinblom & Örter) - Review. 3 May 2020.

Swedish Match has re-launched the One line and today I'll be reviewing one of the five products in the series: One Gul/Yellow (Apelsinblom and Örter / Orange Flowers and Herbs) - a product "Inspired by General". If you're not familiar with the One line, I'll do a quick history. It originally launched in August of 2017 and was a collaboration between UFC's Alexander "The Mauler" Gustafsson.  It was a "modern premium" line, meaning name brand products with a cheaper price tag!  It launched with three qualities: more strength and taste due to new way of refining tobacco, a softer portion material, and more plump portions due to a new way of treating the tobacco.

This isn't a relaunch, this is one of the two new flavors in this line.  When it comes to this snus, the flavor description says it has "light and spicy tobacco character with clear elements of yuzu, as well as slightly herbs and orange blossom."  Each can weighs 22 grams and has 22 portions, for 1g portions.  The nicotine content is 14mg/g (1.4%), or 14mg/portion.  Don't feel bad if you're not familiar with "yuzu".  I had to look it up, myself.  It's a type of citrus that is about the size of a tangerine with a super sour and tart flavor.

The New One Line

This new line has re-launched three products, and added two new ones.  One Vit/Silver (Bergamott and Citrus), which has a "light and spicy tobacco character with clear hints of bergamot and citrus, as well as some tea."  This one is a relaunch of General One White Portion.  One Svart/Black (Bergamott and Läder/Leather), which has a "dark and spicy tobacco character with hints of bergamot and citrus, as well as some tea and leather".  This one is a relaunch of General One Original Portion.   One Blå/Blue (Enbär an d Trä/Juniper and Wood), which has a "light and spicy tobacco character with clear elements of lavender and juniper, as well as slightly wood and citrus."  This one is a relaunch of Göteborgs Rapé ONE White Portion.  And they've launched two new flavors as well.  One Grön/Green (Skogsbär and Torkad Fruit / Forest Berries and Dried Fruit), which has a "light and spicy tobacco character with hints of dark berries, forest, citrus, and slightly provencal herbs."  Also, One Gul/Yellow (Apelsinblom and Örter / Orange Flowers and Herbs), which has a "light and spicy tobacco character with clear elements of yuzu, as well as slightly herbs and orange blossom."

What's Different?

So, you may be asking yourself, what's different about the new One line in addition to the name change?  It seems to be the portion material.  Swedish Match says it's "A closer snus experience".  They say:  "The portion has been adjusted to give a more powerful flavor through a thinner portion material."  And looking at this closeup, you can see that is the case.  The portion material is super thin, and it gets you closer to the tobacco than ever before.

When you open the can, the aroma is a sour, tart smell of citrus with hints of pepper.  It reminds me of grapefruit.  The portions are soft, and have a super slim portion material.  They're also nice and plump, and fill out the lip really well.  The flavor is pretty nice if you like citrus.  It's a present taste of citrus that reminds me of grapefruit.  It's nice and sour, and pretty tart.  There's an earthy tobacco taste in the background, and hints of pepper.  It's super tasty.  The nicotine strength feels to be right at the strong level, and the flavor lasts about an hour on average.  I really enjoyed this one.  There's not a lot of sour citrus products on the market, so this one definitely fills a niche in the snus world!
