Skruf Slim Extra Strong Portion Review

Skruf Slim Extra Stark Portion

Swedish Snus Review

Out of all the snus cruise ship gifts this is the one that tantalized my extremities the most, finally,
Skruf Extra Strong Slim Portion
another long and strong portion to add to my regular usage collection. Yall know how I feel about long and strong. Its seems to be my motivation in life, to seek out the longest and strongest of them all ;)  To me, long portions just make more sense and the comfort and enjoyment factor is off the charts good! I am sorry to say that I have never tried Skruf before. I guess because it is not available to us American’s anymore and back in the day, I was too busy chasing highly flavored candy snus to stand up and take much notice, Shame on me! And now that I do truly appreciate strong and natural flavored snus it becomes unavailable. Isn’t that always the way? Happens all the time with my make-up brands!

Lucky for me I have good friends who can help a sister out, and in turn I can review the exlusive Nordic products so when you do get to try it, you know all the good stuff! J

Packaging

According to AB tobacco, the packaging of Skruf extra sterk slim is “really innovative, that fits into
all social situations, but distinguishes it from all other products on the market.” Haha ok.  I don’t see it being different from the new packaging that SM or odens has adopted, but I do like the new designs. 

Skruf Strength Indication System

Skruf now comes with a circle dot indication system on the side of the can, indicating the strength of
the tobacco. For example 2 dots is regular and 4 dots is extra strong. According to AB this provides easier strength detection to people who might be new to snus and unsure of the strength they are buying. Extra sterk slim had approximately 19 grams of nicotine per portion, which is remarkably strong snus and is marginally comparable with other strong snus on the market, for example: odens extreme, thunder RAW and Extra sterk Swedish Match products.

 

Bergamot and Rose Oil

The Smell of Skruf is similar to all bergamot scented snus but with a very important and enjoyable difference. Skruf adds rose oil to their tobacco which is wonderfully exotic. It adds almost a sweet floral undertone that once you smell through the bergamot you get a subtle warmth and difference in  character. I'm sure that if skruf was the snus that non snusers smelled first, they wouldn’t have the sudden urge to vomit and turn away in disgust. Even I made a point never to smell snus when I first started using. I would hold my breath and then breathe out through my nose to avoid accidental inhalation. Now I don’t care, and love to bury my nose in all things snus.

The Taste of Skruf

Thankfully the taste is very similar to the smell. I was so hoping this was going to be the case. I've
been craving a full bodied tasty portion for a while now. The bergamot is definitely there AND you can taste the subtlety of the rose oil!  This is such a treat, I wish more snus’s had flavored oil additives that didn’t stop and end with peppermint. I could so see a lavender or a rosemary or even a Frankincense. OMG, we could have a whole biblical herb collection! I soo need to have my own snus manufacturer, my wants and desires are endless!

Strength and Nicotine Level

Now back to the strength, Hmm a slight letdown.  For some reason it doesn’t seem that strong to me, I've done 2 portions in the last hour and then had to do a pris of loose. That never happened with odens or thunder but then again, I've been hitting the sterk portions hard lately so it could just be me and my current nicotine tolerance. No I definitely think Odens and thunder sterk are stronger, or maybe its the portion material on Skruf.  Its thicker then others on the market and the portions seem rather dry. Almost like a white portion but a little more moisture content. So if you want a quick nicotine hit go for a V2 product, and if you want a slow long delivery, forget about my need for instant gratification and try Skruf! :)
