Islay Whisky Snus - Heard some interesting news yesterday!
« on: March 15, 2014, 03:14:17 PM »
So, I was at one of the pipe/cigar stores here in Gothenburg, Sweden yesterday, which is one of the two stores here that sells the Islay Whisky snus, and I heard something very interesting.

10-12th of April we have a beer and whiskey convention here, and the store will be there and will announce a Islay Whisky Lös snus.

Yes... you read it right. Our fantastic Islay Whisky snus will be available in loose format!

Apparently, if I understood it correctly, they will after the announcement on the convention, start selling it from the store. The lös snus will come fresh in a whisky barrel, so you will get an empty can which they will fill up for you straight from the barrel. How amazing is that?

I have no idea if it will be available outside of Sweden, but lets just hope!

I believe this will be for sale to online stores as well, so those in the US can get it too.

Sorry for the very late response. This is the shops website: http://mellgrens.se/

I haven't had the time to visit the store, but a friend is there quite frequently and has been asking about updates for this every time. It looks like it's still gonna be a while. I have no idea why there's a delay, but as soon as I get any information I will share it with you guys.

Here's the info on the new Conny products.

From what I've heard from Mellgren's, the Islay Loose won't be back in until the end of summer.

Thanks guys! I'll keep on the lookout. I have some of the "batch 06 code" coming to me which I understand is the 2nd or 3rd batch? The stuff I had before was a code 0001

the later batches are much more moist, taste way better.

6 was a great batch.
I just got some batch 13 which I haven't tried yet.
I actually have a portion of batch 6 in right now.
Conny is the man and the snus is amazing.

I haven't opened those yet either.  I finished the early batches and have been in those second batches lately, which are delicious.

I can't wait for this loose.

Ok so after customs held my snus for a week I got my islay. It is batch 14. Absolutely nice and moist. Just how I like it. Very very nice balance of smoke and whiskey, they meld together as a single flavor. Oh this stuff is soooo good. If we were in a snus bar I would buy rounds of islay whiskey on me!
